Evans Recognized by the OABA

Cincinnati, Ohio

J.C. Evans, Chairman of Gold Medal Products, is the first to receive the Pioneer Award in recognition of his outstanding career service and growth of the concession industry. This award was presented by the national trade organization representing more than 3,000 members from the mobile amusement industry.

The Outdoor Amusement Business Association, Inc.'s (OABA) Hall of Fame Award Committee honored Evans at their annual meeting on February 14, 2009. The committee chose Evans for his lifetime of achievement and dedication to his Gold Medal family of more than 350 employees nationwide and an international network of dealers. OABA also noted his commitment to the amusement industry.




"Evans' Gold Medal leads the industry with many lines of equipment and supplies worldwide," Bob Johnson, president of the OABA, said. "His involvement and support of industry trade associations is a tribute to his charity and dedication to giving back to the industries that help create an international brand of products."

Gold Medal was founded in 1931 by David C. Evans, father of J.C. Evans. It has become the industry leader through a unique approach of carrying quality equipment and supplies, backed by the latest innovations and more than 75 years of experience.
