TMA Awards Schiller Park Manufacturing Leader
The Technology & Manufacturing Association's 44th Winzeler Award was presented March 4th to Tom Simeone, president of Manor Tool in Schiller Park.
The Winzeler Award recognizes TMA members that emulate that passion and vision for TMA and manufacturing that founding member Johnny Winzeler displayed.
Winzeler's grandson John presented the Swiss Atmos clock award to Simeone, who learned about manufacturing at his father's side. After obtaining a degree from the University of Illinois' engineering school, Simeone became a tool & die apprentice, with training through TMA's classes.
He went on to become Manor Tool's president in 1987, where he continues to serve today, along with two of his three children.
Simeone is very active in TMA, having served on the board of directors, the government relations committee and the education and careers committee.
