Indium Corporation Mourns the Loss of Board Chairman William N. Macartney III

September 22, 2021

It is with great sadness that Indium Corporation announces the passing of Chairman William (Bill) N. Macartney III on September 14, 2021. 

Macartney leaves behind a company he served loyally for more than 50 years. Macartney joined in 1967 and was named President in 1970. He was named Chairman in 2017.

Over these many decades, the Indium Corporation has enjoyed consistent, steady growth and significant market expansion. Under Macartney, Indium Corporation grew from approximately 12 employees to nearly 1,200 today and from one facility in Utica, NY, USA to 14 modern and ever-expanding facilities worldwide.

“The hallmarks of Bill’s leadership were his devotion to the people who worked for him, his caring for community, and his commitment to customers who have relied on Indium Corporation to provide outstanding products that have truly impacted the world,” stated Greg Evans, CEO.

“Bill believed that materials science changes the world and he made that a fundamental element of the culture of Indium Corporation,” said Ross Berntson, President and COO. “He provided the platform for our team to continuously look for the next technological advancement.”

Appointment of a new chairman will be completed at the discretion of the board of directors. Evans remains as CEO and Ross Berntson as President and COO.
