On behalf of the Board of Governors of Material Handling Industry, I hope that you are finding your time at ProMat 2011 to be both productive and enjoyable. I would like to take a few moments to introduce you to the sponsor of this event—The Material Handling Industry of America (MHIA). Since 1945, MHIA is 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. Material handling and logistics involve a broad array of equipment and systems that cut costs and improve organizational safety, productivity, quality and visibility.

MHIA strives to maintain and stimulate the continuing growth of the industry by sponsoring world-class trade events, such as ProMat 2011 and Modex 2012 to showcase the best in class products and services of its member companies.

Don’t miss today’s full afternoon educational track on “Sustainability, the Supply Chain and their Future Together.” In this session, a wide range of speakers will detail what it takes to get started, what is working today, and what a sustainable supply chain might look like in a couple of decades. This session begins at 1:00 p.m. in Room S401.

MHIA’s member companies are industry leaders in providing solutions that make the supply chain work and are the exhibiting companies at ProMat 2011. As you walk the ProMat show floor, you will experience the broad representation of the equipment, technology and services that comprise our industry. You will see all types of equipment, systems and services, both basic and advanced. And, because ProMat exhibitors represent the entire industry, you are able to see the individual components necessary to construct a complete and successful material handling and logistics system solution.

For more information on MHIA, our programs and member companies, please visit the Industry Resources booth in The Hub at the center of the ProMat 2011 show floor or visit us on-line at http://www.mhia.org .

Executive Chairman, Material Handling Industry
