2010 recipient of AIDC industry’s highest award.

PITTSBURGH, November 9, 2010,  – High Tech Aid announced today that Steve Halliday was awarded the Richard R. Dilling award at the industry association’s annual meetings last week.

The award was made during the annual awards dinner at the AIM Expo in Chicago IL. After an introduction by Mr. Charles Biss (past recipient) the award was jointly presented by Mr. Biss and Dr. Clive Hohberger (past recipient and current chairman of the AIM, Inc. board).

“Steve has been a well-known leader in the AIDC industry for 30 years and he richly deserves the Dilling Award,” said Dr. Clive Hohberger, chairman of AIM. “His technical expertise, contributions to AIM and the AIDC industry and his leadership in the development of international standards are outstanding.”

High tech Aid provides Expertise“It is a great honor to be considered alongside some of the giants in our industry” said Steve Halliday, president of High Tech Aid. “The AIDC industry is comparable with the PC industry. 30 years ago the “average person” wasn’t affected by personal computers and now they are an integral part of our lives. Automatic Identification also enhances our lives on a daily basis. The “average person” touches it when visiting the grocery store or mall, a hospital, or even when managing a home and finances. This vibrant industry continues to expand and revolutionize society and I look forward to playing a part in its future development.”

Established in 1984 and named for Richard R. Dilling, an industry pioneer and former Vice President of AIM, the Dilling Award is the highest award given in the Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) industry. It is presented to executives, scientists, and engineers in recognition of outstanding contributions that have furthered the growth of the industry through important applications and new technological developments. The recipient is nominated and selected by the AIM president, and committee of the industry's elite. Only one award is made each year, selected from many worthy candidates.
