A Great Networking and Educational Event

I realize that most folks that read this blog aren't in the Minneapolis area but it would be nothing but wrong if I didn't mention the Linked Minnesota Summer Extravaganza on June 21st at the Minneapolis Airport Hilton. Linked Minnesota is a group formed on LinkedIn (and still going strong) of businesses and individuals with interest in networking mainly for business. Every month the group meets for a lunch networking program somewhere in the Twin Cites and twice a year the group has a large event. Next Monday is the big summer event. This program should be great! It looks to be quite large also with close to 500 attendees and over 60 booths. American Warehouse Systems will be there for any material handling systems ... Read more

My Visit to St. Louis and Starrco Modular Offices

Last week I was hosted by my good friends at Starrco in St. Louis MO. Starrco manufactures inplant modular offices and buildings, prefabricated buildings, cleanrooms and just about any other form of hard wall enclosure. I was warmly received by the good people at Starrco, given the tour of the factory and had a great day of meetings with their personnel. The atmosphere was business of course but the Starrco crew has a way of bringing fun into any situation. What a great company to do business with. For those that aren't certain what a modular office or warehouse enclosure is I've included this brief description of what Starrco does from the fine people themselves. Starrco Modular wall systems provide a secure, comfortable working environment ... Read more

Grant Money Available for Material Handling Equipment

When American Warehouse Systems began the campaign to promote Safety Grant Money available through MN Workplace Safety Council, the acceptance of the program was slow, followed by a rapid series of improvement stories.

In order to remove the hazard Central Container employees had to take extra time to move the materials off the floor to a nearby dumpster. With the assistance of seasoned sales representative Paul Brandes from American Warehouse Systems, the solution came in the form of powered conveyor designed to continually remove the scraps. Scraps are now moved from the floor via ... Read more
