Welcome to MHMS Chicagoland!


About Us

The Chicagoland Chapter of the Materials Handling & Management Society (MHMS) brings together material handling practitioners and other members of the greater Chicagoland area material handling community.

Throughout the year, we sponsor a number of special events to help our members keep up-to-date on recent advances in the industry and how local material handling professionals are responding to the challenges they face in today's competitive business environment. 

Our Mission

The Materials Handling & Management Society is an independent, non-profit 501(c)(6) organization dedicated to providing career development and recognition for material handling professionals.

This commitment extends to anyone whose responsibilities embrace the planning, design, deployment or operation of equipment and systems that are fundamental to the productive and safe movement, storage, control, and protection of goods through the use of material handling products and practices.  

This mission is accomplished through our stakeholders: the members, chapters and our affiliations with related organizations.

From the President



Ever wonder what MHMS does with the funds we collect at our Golf Outing and other events? They go to support the future of the Material Handling Industry!  This year we have been able to award multiple Scholarships totaling $4,000. This year’s recipients are:

  • Falk Denert - Bradley University, Double Major in International Business and Global Supply Chain Management Marketing
  • Genna Gillis - The Ohio State University, Engineering
  • W. Leif Van Grinsven - Wheaton College, Business/Economics and International Relations

I want to thank each and every one of you for your continued support.
