The award is given to young engineers working in the mining industry to recognize outstanding engineering professionalism. Over the past two years, Kohmuench's contributions in the United States and abroad have led to sales in excess of $8 million for Eriez Magnetics.

Kohmuench received the award at a luncheon on Oct. 14 at the 2005 Pittsburgh SME Annual Joint Meeting in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. Mike Mankosa, vice president of operations in Erie, and Greg Nowak, manager R&D, were in attendance at the luncheon.
