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.
After an exhaustive search, SJF Material Handling (Winsted, MN) has hired three new solutions specialists (sales staff). These three are stepping into some pretty big shoes that were recently vacated by a couple of other very prolific sales staff. We sincerely wish them all the best and are looking forward to seeing what new skills and talents they can add to our growing family at SJF.

Eric Thovson comes to us with an auto sales and marketing background, and is very active in his community.

If you call in and talk w/one of these gentlemen, please welcome them, and wish them luck in this new endeavor.

About the Nomination (From MN Business Magazine)
People spend about one-third of their lives at work, so for a company looking to attract top talent, it helps to score high marks in employee satisfaction. Businesses featured in our 100 Best Companies to Work For Awards have done just that. This award salutes Minnesota organizations setting the standard for employee well-being. The 100 Best are chosen using data gathered from an anonymous employee satisfaction survey administered by an independent research group. Only the top Minnesotan companies, as judged in areas such as work environment, employee benefits, employee happiness, and leadership, are selected for inclusion in the list.

SJF’s 30+ Year Tradition Continues
This year’s annual Christmas Buffet & Awards event featured BBQ pork & beef with homemade corn bread, shrimp cocktail, desserts, craft beer and even some Serbian moonshine compliments of our installers in Chicago. 2013 proved to be a great year for the company as demonstrated by a record 6 member of the inside sales team qualifying for induction into the “million dollar club”.
2013 marked a year where the production shop turned out great product in record time. Let’s face it … everyone wants it yesterday.
The yard crew also did an outstanding job pulling equipment and getting orders shipped accurately and on time. This was an amazing task on more than a few occasions to say the least. The office staff barely maintained their sanity in 2013 but rumor has it there is light at the end of the tunnel in 2o14. I for one will believe it when I see it.
Lori, Ed, Frank and the rest of the staff had their hands full in 2013 to put it mildly. Incorporating new technologies, changing processes, adding and learning new systems while continuing to process sales orders without delay or incident can prove rather challenging at the best of times. Not a feat for mere mortals – but they found a way to get it done. A great team effort by everyone here.
Hello again, readers!
Today I’d like to tell you about some improvements we have going on at SJF’s headquarters in Winsted, MN. These updates are part of an initiative to make the shop safer and production easier on the employees. First, SJF is installing a brand new crane-way. This overhead structure will allow workers to more easily move rack, conveyor and carousel projects around the shop easily.
