Michel Korwin - Gold Cross




Michel Korwin, President of Nitrex Metal and United Process Controls, was awarded the prestigious Gold Cross of Merit, one of the highest civilian awards in Poland, for his contribution to the development of cooperation between Canadian and Polish universities, as well as his support for the popularization of Polish culture via events such as the Quo Vadis Youth Conference.

Korwin was also recognized for the commercial development and growth of controlled gas nitriding/nitrocarburizing, a technology with its origins in Poland, as well as his ongoing cooperation with Polish institutions of higher learning and his capital investments in Poland.

This proud Canadian remains close to his Polish roots by supporting countless festivals, young athletic groups, Boy and Girl Scouts, and other cultural events that encourage youth to value and remember their traditions, while firmly looking forward.

Korwin received the honor from the Consul General of Poland to Canada, during a commemoration concert marking Poland’s Independence and the 70th Anniversary of the End of World War II, in Montréal on November 11.

The Gold Cross of Merit (Polish: Złoty Krzyż Zasługi) is a Polish civil state award that recognizes services to the State.
