Michael Ohly - 1944-2023

Michael Ohly, former ADCAS President and founder of the organisation, has sadly passed away at the age of 78.

A charming and charismatic industry leader, Michael was instrumental in shaping the ductwork industry during his 18 years as part of the ADCAS Executive Committee.

Appointed as the first President of ADCAS in 1997, Michael helped the association to establish itself as the voice of the ductwork industry and enabled members to forge closer links with the wider construction sector.

Michael was the owner of the Hotchkiss Group for 50 years from 1971 to 2021 and will be dearly missed by colleagues and industry associates.

Everyone at ADCAS and FETA offer condolences to Michael’s family and friends.
