Bridging is a wonderful Minnesota charity organization that SJF Material Handling Inc. is proud to be associated with.
Bridging was founded on one simple, yet powerful idea – that together we can create a bridge between those in need and those with excess. Twenty-five years and nearly 50,000 square feet later, Bridging is the largest furniture bank in North America providing home furnishings and appliances to those in need.
Bridging works with a variety of businesses, foundations, individuals, and other nonprofits to make a difference in the lives of people in need. These partners have generously supported our mission through significant in-kind donations, product drive collections, and/or financial contributions of $10,000 or more.
It’s been a few months since we’ve heard from our newest sales recruit – In this post, Rhonda Remer checks in with some insights on her 9 month anniversary in Material Handling Sales.
Nine months is the typical gestation time of a baby. On my 9 month anniversary in Solution Sales, I’m happy to announce that I’ve been blessed with a little “Bundle of Joy.” No – I’m not talking about the birth of an infant, but rather something new to me called Repeat Customers!
Just the other day I was very excited to open my email one morning to see an email that said, “Remember me? We need 100 more decks!”
GPM Inc, Headquartered in Duluth, MN makes use of SJF’s “Good-as-New” Cantilever Racks to store steel components (bar stock, pipes, etc.) GPM manufactures and distributes the toughest, most reliable submersible and horizontal slurry pumps found anywhere in the world…and they’re located right here in Northern MN – who knew?
GPM called SJF because they were looking for a solution for organizing their extra building materials to get it off the ground and out of the way. They evaluated both new and used cantilever racks. Rhonda (their SJF Salesperson) took pictures of the used Monarch cantilever racks that we had on-site and sent them to GPM. They liked what they saw, and were able to save around 40% off new prices on these used cantilever racks.

SJF Worked with Collins & Jewell to provide some custom pallet rack for a system that they were installing in a military facility. The rack system is being used to store submarine parts which is why we don’t have any photos of this job, but we came up with a solution…
