The award, administered by the Committee on Technician Affairs, honors excellence and professionalism among technicians, operators, analysts, and other applied chemical technology professionals.

During his 30-plus-year career at Dow, Allen has developed and improved numerous analytical methodologies and technologies used for the development and manufacture of polyurethanes, polymers, and high-performance plastic materials. As manager of the site’s propylene oxide and propylene glycol laboratories, he has taken a leadership role in improving the general safety of the lab work environment. Allen has served as the Site Analytical Leadership Team steering team leader for 10 years.
