This years’ Presidents Award went to Todd Gillis. Todd is the treasurer for the Chicagoland Chapter of MHMS. He has been a long time contributor and instrumental in the success of our golf outing every year. We thank Todd for his dedication and commitment to the association for many years.
We would also like to thank all the companies supporting our efforts, without you this golf outing and the programs and scholarships we provide to young students wanting to get into this industry would not be possible.
Our 3rd MHMS tour of 2017 was a huge success thanks to Ginny, Tim, Dan, Chris and Paul at Sackett Systems in Bensenville, IL.
The new extractor training facility was a very interactive and informational aspect of the tour. Each attendee had the chance to change batteries using the new Sackett Hydra Handler system. We are very thankful to the entire Sackett team for hosting this MHMS event!
We had another successful MHMS tour at Sony in Bolingbrook, IL. There were 25 attendees representing 8 companies across the Material Handling industry.
Rich, Tanya, and Chris educated the attendees on the tremendous success of the VLM and RadioShuttle projects at this Sony location. The tour definitely exceeded everyone"s expectation and lunch was a great networking event.
A huge thank you for Rich and Chris from Sony for hosting the tour.
We had a great tour at Method Soap in the Historic Pullman District of Chicago!
Jerry and Shannon did an unbelievable job of highlighting the history of the area and what sets Method apart from their competition. It truly was an amazing tour. People Against Dirty did not disappoint and definitely exceeded our tour expectation. After hearing the story and seeing how in tune Method is with the environment we will be promoting the product to anyone who will listen!
