It’s hard to believe it has been a year since our last Year in Review post, but January is upon us and that means another year is in the books. At the outset of 2017, our goal was to take the initiatives set in motion in 2016 and execute on them, hopefully making a positive impact in our industry and in the community along the way. Now, with a chance to look back at 2017 in hindsight, we’re grateful for how many opportunities we were given to do just that. Peter Drucker said that “culture eats strategy for breakfast,” and we have to agree. But when culture and strategy work together, it can produce amazing results. 

Thank you to our Material Handling friends and peers who joined us for another great year in a great industry!
