SJF Supports Eric Thovson & Family in Local Swim-a-thon Fundraiser

Eric Thovson & Family

Eric Thovson & Family

Thovson and family shown here sporting SJF colors were out in force this past month supporting High Tides Swim Club and the USA Swimming Foundation. The purpose of the event was to  raise some donations via the Swim-a-thon challenge.

Eric’s daughter Bella completed an impressive 240 laps in 1 hour and 53 minutes for a total of 6,000 meters (almost 4 miles).  Pretty awesome Bella! Eric swam a total of 1,800 meters adding to the total. Eric & Bella’s effort helped rack up some additional donation dollars for the event.

The event saw over 56 athletes ranging in age from 7 to 48 years old participate in this event in support of our non-profit organization dedicated to providing developmental and competitive swimming opportunities to children in the greater Hutchinson area. USA Swimming clubs have over 12,000 registered athletes aged 18 and under in Minnesota and it is the single largest organized activity for kids in the United States.

This event raised over $10,000 thanks to the support and generosity of it’s sponsors. 95% of the money raised stays with our local club to help fund our scholarship program for swimmers with financial hardships. The other 5% goes to the USA Swimming Foundation to support national initiatives.

Eric’s involvement in swimming had been as a Dad and President of the Board of Directors until recently. Eric is now back in the water as an official member of United States Masters Swimming. For now it is fitness driven, but at some point Erick claims he may get up the courage to race in a Master’s meet. Maybe about 30-40 pounds from now. One thing is for sure, the Sales team at SJF will surely taunt him relentlessly in his quest.

Keep an eye open in the months ahead for further updates. Till then, keep your head above water Eric and keep strok’en.

Vance Haugen Featured on the Cover of Modern Material Handling?

Vance Haugen’s dream of being featured on the cover to Modern Materials Handling finally came true last month. Well sort-a!

Vance stopped by their booth during ProMat this year and the gang there did this mock up conveyor for him to take home and put in his office. While it’s not exactly the April issue, everyone here thinks you look great on the cover Vance.

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.

ET sighting – and he’s not phoning home

SJF’s very own November inside sales champ Eric Thovson (right) shown here with classmate Mark Karsten talking some smack & posing for photos this past weekend. Eric and Mark posted times of 27.84 & 27.95 respectfully. Not bad for 2 of the oldest swimmers at the meet.

Eric has long been very passionate about promoting the local swim team and has been instrumental in the success of the current program. When he’s not promoting swimming, Eric can be found at SJF Material Handling in Winsted, MN. There he works as a inside sales & solutions specialist. No stranger to success, November was a record sales month for Eric and good enough to secure the #1 rank honors among his peers.

So what’s next for Eric “ET” Thovson?
Could an Eric Moen swim challenge be in the cards for 2015?
