Material Handling Sales Without a Net

Rhonda Remer

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.

Ed & Eric (would you trust these guys with your food?)

To kick off the summer, SJF held a company barbecue in the parking lot last week.  Hamburgers, Brats & Hot Dogs & even some Venison (Deer) were expertly grilled by our very own Eric Moen and Ed Salonek.

We even busted out our custom made SJF grill made from material handling components left over from various projects in the production shop.

All of the employees enjoyed their lunch and then played a little hoops before returning to work for the rest of the day.
