SJF's Material Handling Blog
The final finishing touches today were put on SJF’s newly refurbished company lunch room. Several weeks in waiting and just in time for Christmas, the new lunch room will be completed just in time to host SJF’s annual employee chile cook-off wars. With credit card in hand, Menard’s was raided and supplies requisitioned resulting in a total kitchen makeover for the employees lunchroom. The revamp included but was by no means limited to new tiled floors, a hipster paint job, new 100% certified imitation wood cabinets, scratch & dent appliances, fully functional electrical outlets and more. All construction was done under the watchful eye of sales solutions specialist and resident celebrity “Rusty Iron Chef” Vance Haugen ( seen above in his snappy colored red shirt). Vance’s review – 2 thumbs up & a full 5 stars approval rating.
Kendal Kalamaha (who’s no stranger to accepting a challenge) and Jason Deiter ( who’s not shy about creating one) overcame some cold frigid weather and a blistering wind to participate in this years annual Turkey Tag-a-long 5k run in Howard Lake Minnesota. It was one of those ” if you do it I’ll do it to” scenarios that got both men out on the course and across the finish line. While it may have been Kendal’s 1st official 5K race, he is no stranger to running long distances. Kendal has been an avid runner for the past 2 years often waking at 4 AM to put in as many as 4-5 miles/day before leaving for the office. Jason is no rookie to competition himself having been an avid distance runner and a
local legend a few years back. At the end of the day, Kendal finished with an impressive 25:26:5 time. Kendal’s effort for 5K was good enough to earn him a 10th place finish in a field of over 120 runners . Jason’s 31:22:00 time was good enough to beat over half the field and a 40th place finish. Not bad for going right from the couch to the starting line in frigid conditions. When Jason and Kendal aren
‘t running races or taking on challenges they can be found working at SJF Material Handling in Winsted, MN. There Jason , Kendal and 6 of their sales coworkers work with businesses nationwide who are looking for new & used material handling & warehouse equipment…or at least.. when they are not taunting each other over the next new challenge.

For today’s Employee Spotlight, we return our beam back to the production shop. We have some very talented employees who aren’t always in the forefront, but it’s important that the public face of our company (ie: sales & marketing) remembers that there’s many other guys behind the scenes who make everything possible.
