INDA has presented the Lifetime Achievement Award to Nick Santoleri, COO of Rockline Industries.

Santoleri was named COO of the wipes converter one year ago after 20 years with the company. He entered the wipes industry in 1980 at Scott Paper as a co-op student at Drexel University. At Scott, he worked on the first branded flushable wipes. Later in his career, he worked on the first refillable baby wipe pack at Kimberly-Clark. Over the course of his career, he has been involved with the installation of 16 new lines, four greenfield facilities and over two dozen nonwoven-based products.

Crediting the people he has worked with over the years, Santoleri says, "This is not an indiviual award. There is no way anyone can do what they do without the support and vision of this industry."
