AWISCO Announces Retirement of Felim O’Malley and Hiring of New Company President

AWISCO CEO Lloyd Robinson released the following announcement regarding long-time Executive Vice President Felim O’Malley:

“It is indeed a bittersweet moment to announce the retirement of Felim O’Malley from AWISCO. Felim’s contributions over his 20+ years at AWISCO, starting with the acquisition of Dynamic Welding in 2002, have been invaluable. The establishment of AWISCO West Babylon stands as a testament to his integral role in the company’s growth.

We appreciate and acknowledge Felim for the many changes and acquisitions he has been a part of during his tenure. AWISCO would not be where it is today, without Felim’s wisdom and guidance. While he will be greatly missed, we understand and respect his decision to retire and wish him the best in this new chapter of his life.

Felim’s technical presence until the end of 2025 allows for a gradual transition, and we look forward to his continued guidance during this time. We understand that Felim has his own way of doing things, and we are grateful for the imprint he leaves on AWISCO.

As we bid farewell to Felim, we also embrace an exciting announcement regarding the search for a company President. This pivotal role will directly report to me as CEO. To those interested in this position within the industry, please reach out directly by calling 800-834-1925 or emailing

Once again, thank you, Felim, for your dedication and hard work. Your legacy will undoubtedly be a challenge to live up to, and we wish you all the best in your well-deserved retirement.”
