President of Amuneal Technical Products Retires

Please join the Amuneal family in wishing Larry Maltin, President of Technical Products, best wishes on his upcoming retirement. His last official day is February 10, 2011.

Larry joined Amuneal in 1987 and served as the President and Chief Executive Officer for 16 years after the passing of the founder, Seymour Kamens. Seymour’s son Adam joined the company in 1993 and later assumed the role of CEO in 2003. As the company grew into new markets, Larry continued to manage the Technical Products business.

Larry’s many contributions to Amuneal include promoting the development of Amumetal 4k (A4K), a cost-effective cryogenic magnetic shielding material alternative for Cryoperm 10 ™, developing the shielding program that supports semiconductor wafer fabrication, as well as countless EMF and magnetically shielded room (MSR) projects. His most noteworthy project was a MSR at the Spallation Neutron Source at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The 61 foot long 2 layer magnetically shielded room, which included 27,000 pounds of Amumetal and over 800,000 pounds of high density concrete is part of the SRF linac at the accelerator and stands as the world’s largest known magnetic shield. Under Larry’s meticulous project management, the MSR exceeded the shielding attenuation requirements of the program and was completed weeks ahead of schedule.

Larry will continue to be a valuable resource to the Amuneal organization, spend more time with family and friends, and donate his time and talents to causes that are dear to him.

Everyone who has worked with Larry over the past 24 years is better for it and we wish him all great things.
