SJF named as one of Minnesota’s “100 Best”

SJF Material Handling of Winsted, MN has been named to Minnesota Business Magazines ” 100 Best Companies To Work For ” list for 2015. This marks the 3rd consecutive year SJF has been named to the list.

The “100 Best” were selected by an independent research firm employing various research techniques — including an anonymous online questionnaire filled out by the employees of each company — to determine which companies in Minnesota excel in the areas of work environment, employee benefits, and overall employee happiness.

Featured Client- Soul Flower

Soul Flower was founded in 1999 by Mike and Peggy as a way to promote a bohemian, eco-friendly, and peaceful lifestyle. Our little shop on Grand Avenue in Saint Paul, Minnesota was a gathering place for college students and locals looking for ‘cool threads for kind heads’. Since those days, Soul Flower has made a few changes… they no longer have a retail store, but have expanded with a digital catalog, an online retail shop, a wholesale catalog, and a screen printing team. One thing that hasn’t changed is our dedication to offering our customers thoughtful, eco-friendly clothing styles at an affordable price – and of course the best customer service anywhere!

In 2014, Soul Flower contacted Eric Moen at SJF to assist in a new addition to their expanding warehouse, and he was happy to oblige.

SJF runners accept challenge – take on Turkey-Day Tag-a-long 5K Race

SJF Material Handling ( Kanda & Jason)

It started with your typical Wednesday afternoon taunt among coworkers which lead to a 5K race challenge on a frigid Thanksgiving day.

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 year’s 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.

SJF’s New Sweep Sorter

SJF engineer Matt Johnson & systems integrator Frank Sterner team up with SJF’s fabrication pros to create, fabricate and program a first-of-its-kind sweep sorter.

This is a very specialized piece of equipment capable of sorting hard to sort packages and bagged product (aka Halloween & other Costumes). This was specifically designed for a Minnesota client to quickly process and fill incoming sales orders quickly while minimizing errors.

This system will allow the company to vastly increase the number of orders they can process as well accommodate future growth and product demand.
