Hy-Tek Material Handling celebrated its 50th Anniversary on January 22, 2013. Hy-Tek is a single-source provider of material handling solutions for an extensive range of industries including manufacturing, distribution, retail, pharmaceutical, food, electronics, and automotive. The 50th Anniversary announcement was made by Hy-Tek CEO Samuel Grooms at the Ohio Statehouse during a gubernatorial ceremony recognizing Hy-Tek for half a century of business success.

“The 100-plus employee-owners of Hy-Tek Material Handling are proud to join the exclusive ranks of businesses that have survived and thrived for 50 years. As we celebrate half a century of success serving the nation’s leading manufacturers and distributors, we find ourselves reflecting on what it takes to flourish over five decades. We attribute our longevity, in part, to our ability to nurture lasting relationships with valuable partners including our customers, suppliers, associates, and community. We look forward to continued growth over the next 50 years,” said Grooms.
