Douglas MacGregor Allan 1924-2014 

We lost a great man on February 12, 2014. Doug Allan was not only the founding father of Pacific Metallurgical Inc, he was the father of both Cathy Fallen-Mathews and Ginny Lillie, as well as the grandfather of Derek Fallen.

Doug has been recognized with many industry accolades such as Fellow of ASM and the Legends Award from the Metal Treating Institute. He is also known for his support and contributions in education for the Materials Science and Engineering programs at the University of Washington.

We thank him for his 47 years of dedication in establishing PMI. For those of you who had the pleasure of meeting or knowing Doug, you knew he took great pride in this company and what it represents.
