Chairman’s Message

Doug Carson
Fallsway Equipment Company

A message from MHEDA’s 2018 Chairman of the Board:

I feel truly privileged to be granted the opportunity to lead a strong MHEDA organization in a time of industry growth and rapid change. Thank you to all of our members for your participation and support in making MHEDA such a fantastic industry association. It’s going to be a great 2018!

At Fallsway Equipment Company we start our strategic planning process by reviewing MHEDA’s 2018 Material Handling Business Trends and discuss how we, as managers, can use this knowledge to plan for the coming year. I know many of you have helped contribute to the list of the most important issues facing our industry, and subsequently use the compiled list in your planning process as well. 

Our association’s Board and the MHEDA staff have put together a great year of programming for all of us to take advantage of in 2018. From the Material Handling Business Trends we have devised educational programming in the form of webinars and live conferences throughout the year directly addressing our most pressing business topics. Be sure to review MHEDA’s Educational Calendar and drive the use of this resource deep into your organization by having managers and staff include relevant events in your company’s training plans this year.

I look forward to meeting you at our 2018 events.

Doug Carson, Vice President Marketing/Sales
