Tully is one of this year’s six posthumous inductees, who are elected by living members of the Hall of Fame following a screening process.
“These new posthumous inductees proudly represent the length and breadth of our great industry, with a wealth of accomplishments in polymer science, engineering, manufacturing, equipment design and business management,” president of the Plastics Academy Jay Gardiner said.
Tully more than doubled the workforce of MTD Micro Molding after taking over the company from his father in 2008. The company has also been twice named as a Plastics News Best Places to Work and as a finalist for the Plastic News Processor of the Year title in 2019.
“The desire to help the family business was pretty intriguing and that was the challenge that I couldn’t say no to,” Tully told Medical Design & Outsourcing in June 2017.
The inductee ceremony will take place on March 24 as part of the Spring National Board Meeting of the Plastics Industry Association in Washington D.C.
