Awards and Recognition

American Eagle Awards

ISA’s prestigious American Eagle Awards program focuses on two awards categories.

The Excellence In Industry Award recognizes companies in the MROP channel for their commitment to driving value to channel partners. Qualified candidates demonstrate excellence in one or more areas, including: communicating with channel partners, introducing innovative products and services that create new business opportunities, developing effective marketing programs to drive sales, or showing exemplary leadership and service in partnership with charitable and community organizations.

The John J. Buckley Lifetime Achievement Award honors any individual in the MROP channel for his/her longstanding service in the industrial supply industry. Qualified candidates have made significant contributions to the success of the industry and/or their community, and have earned the respect of their associates and peers. Any individual from an ISA member company may submit nominations for this award. Award candidates must have been employed with a member company at the time of their nomination.

The 2016 winners of the American Eagle Awards were revealed during the 2016 ISA Convention. Don Ruggles, chairman of Martin Supply of Sheffield, Ala., received the John J. Buckley Lifetime Achievement Award. Stellar Industrial Supply, Tacoma, Wash., and Sandvik Coromant, Fair Lawn, N.J., received the Excellence in Industry Award.


The ISA Golden Eagle Recognition Program is ISA's way of recognizing the valuable contribution of individuals who have provided longstanding service to companies in the industrial supply industry. Any employee of an ISA member company who has been employed in the industry for 35 years or more is eligible for membership in the Golden Eagle Club.
