On behalf of the Board of Governors of MHI, I hope that you are finding your time at ProMat 2013 to be both productive and enjoyable. I would like to take a few moments to introduce you to the sponsor of this event—MHI. Since 1945, MHIA has been the leading association in the United States representing the industry that produces material handing and logistics solutions—the Solutions that Make the Supply Chain Work.

The equipment, systems and software solutions of material handling and logistics very often hold the key to a productive and profitable supply chain. These solutions include a broad array of equipment and systems that cut costs and improve organizational safety, productivity, quality and visibility.

MHI strives to maintain and stimulate the continuing growth of the industry by sponsoring world-class trade events, such as ProMat 2013 and Modex 2014 to showcase the best-in-class products and services of its member companies. We also offer a newly designed, solution-focused Web site at http://www.MHI.org and the MHI Solutions magazine both of which deliver content focusing on the needs of manufacturing and supply chain professionals.
This morning’s keynote session features futurist Edie Weiner will lead a panel discussion of industry leaders on the future of material handling, logistics and the supply chain. The keynote begins at 8:30 a.m. in the Grand Ballroom, S100. There is also a full list of show floor educational seminars and two educational track sessions.
