Cover Story Ron Slee

It is quite common at the end of the year to look back at the year just concluded. How did you do? Did you satisfy your customers? Did you have a good sales year? Did you make money? There is a long list of measures we can consider when we are asked, “How did you do?” I say they’re all part of a yearend review. I used to conduct a serious performance review on myself early in my career. It wasn’t pretty. My wife actually suggested I get a hotel room for a few days as I wasn’t much fun to be around when I conducted the review. So I stopped, but I still conduct what I like to believe is an honest year-end review. What is success? Let’s start at the beginning and define success. For this I am going to look to one of the most successful sports coaches for a model. Former UCLA Bruins men’s basketball coach John Wooden was one of the winningest coaches in NCAA basketball history. He had two sets of rules he drilled into his players. The first set was: Never lie, never cheat and never steal. The second set was: Don’t whine, don’t complain and don’t make excuses. This second one is the one I want to focus on. Many of us have experienced a 360-degree review. This is the review when our employees, peers and bosses review our performance. It can be quite humbling. However, it is a powerful tool for self-improvement if we approach it from a personal growth perspective. I used to have a standard series of questions I asked people I worked with, every six months. What do I do that you like and want me to continue doing? What do I do that doesn’t really matter to you one way or another? What do I do that you don’t like me doing and you want me to stop doing? Holding two such discussions every year with each employee, it took about a year before I got some serious feedback. It took that long for people to have a true trust in me and the process. After all, for some people this is saying to the boss, “I don’t like this particular thing you do.” 6

December 2016

That could be a dangerous comment to make with many bosses, but it never was a threat to me. That’s because I always wanted to hear what people I worked with thought about what I was doing. What they liked—I obviously continued doing as long as I felt it had value. What didn’t matter to them—allowed me to seriously have a look at what I was doing. Was it something truly necessary for me to do, and as a result, was I in a position to eliminate the non-value added tasks I performed? I found this extremely beneficial. Finding out what employees didn’t like allowed me to look at things from two differing perspectives. Was it necessary and how was my delivery. The necessity of the thing was the same as the non-value added review. The delivery was another interesting aspect of my work. Pillars of life I have always been amazed at the skill some people have in telling people how poorly they are doing something, while getting the employee to say thank you. It is a wonderful skill to be able talk honestly about a performance issue with an employee in such a style they embrace the discussion. I strive to be able to do this all the time, yet I still have work to do on this aspect. Again, I go back to what I believe are three pillars of life for everyone. Everyone wants to do a good job. Everyone can do more than they think they can. Everyone is fundamentally lazy. Everyone walking the planet wants to have significance; they want to leave a mark. These three points I believe apply to each one of us. Don’t be misled by that last one. It is positive as well—as it means we are always going to try and find an easier way to do something. That is a great attribute. So let’s define success according to Coach John Wooden. Success: “Peace of mind which is a direct result of selfsatisfaction in knowing you made an effort to become the best you are capable of becoming.” It’s a simple statement. But that’s a tough standard to live up to, isn’t it?


SUCCESS IS EASIER WHEN YOU HAVE  A customer-focused supplier that understands your needs.  Satisfied, loyal customers that can depend on you.  A diversified customer base.  Increased bottom line profit. Thombert is your SINGLE SOURCE SOLUTION for less frustration and more profit. Give us a call, kick back, and rest easy. It’s that simple! 316 E. 7th Street N. Newton, IA, 50208

Cover Story I remember having someone tell me I had a lot of potential when I was about 16 years old. Let’s consider that same person telling me the same thing when I am 66 years old. I would wonder what I had done for the intervening 50 years! That is what makes the challenge of Wooden’s definition of success so daunting. Holding yourself up for an honest review of how you did over the previous year is tough. Did I do everything I could? Did I apply myself as I should have? Did I grow as a person? Did I continue to learn? What can I do different next year? These are all good questions to ask. One note of caution: Don’t be too tough on yourself. You are going to be here for a long time. It’s important you set yourself on a path to become better at realizing your capacity and potential. The time is now.

Aftermarket Dave Baiocchi

Turning on the “buy- in” switch In my search for inspiration I many times turn to the quotes of legendary sports figures and coaches. My observation is that in order to rise to preeminent positions of respect in their chosen field, these leaders had to learn the best ways to leverage their talents and abilities. They not only understood their own skills, but more importantly HOW those skills could best be used within the context of their team, their environment and their culture to consistently produce winning performances. My favorite quotes come from football coaches like Lou Holtz and Vince Lombardi. Both of these men had a knack for pithy one liners that cut through the noise of excuses, and defined simply and succinctly the formulas for creating winning strategies. What I also observed is how they understood and utilized team dynamics in ways that others couldn’t. Vince Lombardi was a master at it. In 1958, the Green Bay Packers posted a season record of 1-10-1, the worst in franchise history. Lombardi took over as head coach in 1959 and by1960 the team won the Western Conference title. Over the next decade Lombardi would lead the Packers to three National Championships and two Super Bowl victories.

How did he do that? He didn’t have the advantage of money, or superior facilities, or marquis players that seemingly created other winning teams. He was operating in the smallest market in country, with a limited budget, a harsh climate and a group of men that had just endured the worst football seasons of their lives. What Lombardi understood however was that winning teams are built from the inside out. His primary concern was NOT about football, it was about COMMITMENT. All of his energy was pointed at a single goal. That goal was simply to identify and develop players who were completely and INDIVIDUALLY committed to the work that was required to win. Lombardi was asked what made his teams great. His answer was profound: “Individual commitment to a group effort -- that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.” Mr. Lombardi is defining what the leadership community calls “buy-in.” You can always get your people to do what you need them to do. Simply require the task to be completed, and enforce unpleasant consequences if the work is not carried out. This is the way many organizations work. In this model however, people simply trade their hours for the company’s dollars. The only appeal made to

Aftermarket the employee is the lure of the wages and benefits. The natural tenancy of those completing the work, is to do as little as possible to continue to get the benefits promised. These employees are not concerned about the goals of the company, because they are not CONNECTED to the goals of the company. It’s not personal…’s just business. Developing “buy-in” however makes an appeal to a much broader spectrum. In a dollar- for- hours trade the company gets the benefit of the employees time, but they almost never get the benefit of their individual commitment (buy-in). That only happens when people feel that what they do for the company has a greater benefit to them personally than just receiving a wage. When someone buys in, they care. What they do after they buy in now says something about who they are. When they buy in, they connect the dots between their efforts and their value. I’m not saying that effort and value are the same thing, but at least they understand that these two things are connected. This emotional disconnect is becoming even more prevalent from a generational perspective. As I get older, and, by comparison, the majority of my employees get younger, I have observed that the employees that entered the full time workforce in the 90’s and the 00’s have substantially different motivations regarding employment than people who came of age in the 70’s and 80’s. People of my generation were raised with the understanding that work was a calling. We identified more personally with the work we did for 40 or 50 hours a week. Many younger employees do not seem have the same perspective. Work is viewed more as a contract than it is a calling. They don’t

see their work as a part of their life. In fact they see work as simply a necessity in order to afford their life. Life and work are mutually exclusive. I’m not suggesting that this is wrong. It simply is a cultural shift that must be accounted for when leading a team. Getting buy-in will be more difficult with younger employees. They will be motivated differently, and will be harder to connect with on a personal level. This only underscores the importance of obtaining this level of personal commitment. When you have buyin working to your advantage, you get the same work accomplished, but there is a difference. Now the work can be done without you monitoring it 24/7. As buy-in increases, fewer mistakes are made, jobs are completed under quote, the gratis budget shrinks and there are fewer parts returns. Buy-in is the lubrication that keeps the service business machine running because the employees finally feel a sense of personal value and accomplishment when thing go right. So, how do we turn on the buy-in switch? Public recognition? Training? Personal attention? Tangible rewards? Here are some ideas you might try. Any one of them may increase your chances of getting buy-in from your crew: • When a technician turns in a sales lead, make it a priority to get back with the technician who submitted the lead. Let him know it was followed up and tell

him what happened. Thank him for making an effort. Peer to peer appreciation feeds the culture of buy-in in ways you can’t even imagine. Let your key employees know that you notice when they invest a little extra time ensuring that things got done correctly. Simply saying that their effort doesn’t go un-noticed makes a huge difference. Personally thank a staff member for participating in the safety program, especially when you find them actually wearing their PPE, or following established protocols. Ask an employee for their opinion. Follow up with ways you will use that opinion to make meaningful change, large or small. Then do it, and give them credit for it. Find a way to reach out on a personal level to your crew. When they see you care about them and their family on a personal level, there is a higher probability that they will reciprocate by taking their work personally. Find a way to make corporate initiatives into mini competitions. You don’t have to have a big budget tied to it. Sometimes simply posting the results drives performance. No matter how old they are, people generally always like to be recognized and appreciated. Incidentally, they also really like to win! Do it more than once. Make it a habit. Repetition is the key to success in this regard.

I believe also in making it clear from the outset (date of hire) that personal commitment is both expected and rewarded. This will go a long way toward building the culture you desire. Be very clear that the company puts a high value on the employees that personally care how it turns out. Remind them that you trust them with your reputation. Their actions will either support or diminish the image you have worked so hard to build over the years. Pair this with appropriate recognition and rewards, and the process of developing buy-in will get much easier. Bear in mind that this is not a departmental issue. You cannot build a culture of individual commitment in the service department, when these goals are not resident in parts, rentals, sales, the office staff and upper management. Employees watch each other, and they tend to scale their efforts based on what they see and hear around them. If people in all departments are pulling their weight, and getting recognized for it, it will naturally call them up to a higher level of personal buy-in. The one thing Vince Lombardi did not have to contend with was the millennial work ethic. I do however believe that even if he did, he would have worked the problem until he found a solution.

Bottom Line Garry Bartecki

Close it and plan it I mean let’s close out 2016 and get the plan for 2017 finalized so that you can start implementation on January 2, 2017. Are you prepared to do that? What I mean when I say “closed out” is the following, at a minimum: The banks accounts are reconciled and all open items cleared. This should be done monthly with only minor corrections to make in December. The Accounts Receivable account, net of reserves, represents a reasonable collectible balance that will be converted to cash. Bad accounts have been written off, credits issued where necessary, interest charges reversed if you don’t plan to collect them and accounts sent off for collection where necessary. It is also a good time to review how your credit app and new account acceptance policy is working. This process also can be finalized earlier in the year to avoid the December crush. All inventories should be counted and valued and adjusted at least once a year. If you keep your count records and adjustments worksheet that should be good enough for the auditors as long as they can review the process. Cycle counting works and allows you to spread the pain over the entire year.

Both long-term and short-term rental fleets should be reconciled. Go through your utilization schedules to see which units have little or no hours on them for the current year and (1) see that you still have them, and (2) determine what is wrong with them and what it would cost to fix them. List the units to be sold or replaced. Schedule repairs for the ones that are salvageable. This process to can be completed other than at the year end. I also like to get an annual desk top appraisal of my fleet so I know what the OLV are. I use this information when in discussions with my bankers and as a source to price used equipment for sale. Fixed assets should go through the same process as the fleet. I also include leased equipment in this process. Do we have them all? Do we use them all? Are major repairs around the corner? Is it the time to replace any of them? Is it a good time to make a deal with the equipment dealers? On the liability side we need all the 2016 bills processed by January 10th. We also need all commission reports completed and approved by the 15th. Bonus pools and profit-sharing contributions need to be finalized. It is also prudent to calculate bank covenants every quarter so that adjustments can be made and surprises avoided. By now I hope you are getting the point.....YOU CAN CLOSE OUT 2016 EASILY IN JANUARY OF 2017 IF YOU SPREAD THE RECONCILIATION PROCESS OVER THE ENTIRE YEAR. In fact, you should have a draft of your final statement by January 15..... and be ready and able to tackle 2017. Way too many people still don’t know their operating results for the prior year until May or June of the following year. Not acceptable any longer. The goal should be a 5-day monthly close and a 15-day, year end close. Today’s systems allow you to do this. Tips for 2017 From what I am seeing the forecast for 2017-18 is soft for material handling equipment. Of course there are exceptions to the rule by brand, model and location. So you might want to review your purchase commitments for 2017 and keep them as light as you can. Knowing sales will be soft means, your after market efforts have to save the day. Shoot for that 100% absorption rate. We know what the tax rules are for 2016. We don’t know what they will be in 2017. They may change and they may not, but why give up anything when we can maximize our tax deductions for 2016 and create carryovers we can use in 2017and beyond. I went through this drill and we decided to max our 2016 deductions using Section 179 and Bonus Depreciation knowing we would generate a tax loss we can carry forward. We did this to ensure that the 2017 taxable income was covered so as to avoid paying taxes on 2017 projected income. Who knows, the tax laws for 2017 could change, increase taxable income and require an annual tax bill as well as estimated tax payments for the following year.

Bottom Line There is a lot of talk about the worldwide economy and the national economy stating conditions are overheated, interest rates on the rise and that we are due for another recession. What this tells you is “AVOID ADDITIONAL DEBT SERVICE” and reduce debt as much as you can. It also tells you to review all interest bearing loan agreements to determine if you should lock in a rate before rates increase. Taking steps to increase productivity is a must for every dealer. We have discussed, and you have heard from many sources, how the IoT is applicable to your business. If you have not already, 2017 may be the year to start with digitizing your service department, equipment and tech dispatch, tracking units, service trucks and sales personnel using GPS. If economic problems develop you will be far more efficient using these tools and be able to keep the biz moving using fewer payroll dollars. To a PROFITABLE 2016 AND 2017.

The “model” salesperson You’ve seen them … job postings for sales positions that range between wishful and delusional thinking on the part of whoever posted it. The list of demands often reads something like: “Must be a self-starter who is aggressive, competitive, and relentless about closing business as well as a relationship builder who is customer-service focused at all times. Must be a deadlinedriven multitasker who is also highly detail focused and organized. Must have advanced knowledge of complex product lines and be an excellent project manager who can oversee installation. Must be team oriented and collaborative while willing to work independently and self-supervise.” Sure, most hiring managers know this person doesn’t really exist. They are just hoping to hire as closely as possible to the supposed “model” salesperson, so why not ask for the moon? But there are at least three immediate problems with posting a laundry list of unrealistic demands, as depicted in the example above: •E  very job seeker who reads it will think “That’s not me!” in response to one or more of the demands and, as a result, might move on to some other company’s less-ridiculous job advertisement, which means the original posting risks eliminating potential top performers. • In the posting, the job demands aren’t weighted — probably because the Hiring Manager doesn’t know which competencies are critical for the role — so the list may have the unintended effect of attracting weaker applicants who are only strong in supporting competencies and not in the critical ones. • It puts the onus on the job seeker to explain away any alleged shortcomings instead of on the company to determine what actually works best in the role it is looking to fill. The laundry-list approach does not describe a model salesperson; it imagines a supermodel salesperson. And, out of curiosity, have you ever gotten a date with a supermodel? We all know that salespeople are the ones keeping the lights on. Discovering the qualities needed for sales success in specific roles not only increases revenue, but it reduces turnover and ensures a more profitable bottom line. Job models are built from mixtures of performance competencies that have been identified, through scientific verification, to be critical success factors. The closer a job applicant matches the model, the more likely that person will perform well in the position. Warning: There is no all-encompassing “good salesperson” model, nor are there all-purpose “hunter” or “farmer” models, either. In fact, throughout Caliper’s eight unique sales job models, qualities that point to success in one sales role could be performance inhibitors in another. Here’s a brief overview of the eight models: Sales manager – Focuses on the dynamics needed for balancing leadership with managing one’s own book of business New business development – Emphasizes the attributes associated with cold-calling, lead generation, negotiating, and reeling in accounts, often in a territory-based setting Account development – Focuses on roles that deal with relationship building and account retention 22

 ccount service specialist – Used when client-services A activities are blended with up-selling and cross-selling duties Consultative selling – Focuses on roles that require a deep exploration of client needs and then partnering with them on solutions Strategic selling – Employed when a complex understanding of a client’s business, relative to industry trends and market changes, is needed to address long-range or ongoing needs Technical sales – Used when subject-matter expertise and analyses of complex technical needs are paramount to success General sales – Focuses on the basic essentials for sales positions or on new roles that have yet to be fully defined The key takeaway: the job-model approach provides far greater precision and predictive validity than the supermodel one. The best part is that hiring managers can use the designated job model again and again as the sales operation expands, knowing they are hiring high-potentials each time. It’s almost like capturing lighting in a model.

Sales Trends Art Sobzcak

What to do right now to instantly get _____ results A new sales rep joined a company in an industry he had never sold to before. Within two months he was kicking major butt and became the number one rep. By a lot. A few of the disgruntled and jealous reps who had been there for a couple of years –all of whom consistently hovered at their monthly quota lines--were in the break room complaining about the young stud’s success. “I don’t know how he’s doing it. He doesn’t have the product knowledge I do,” said one. Another chimed in: “Yeah, and I know he doesn’t have as much talk time as I do.” Another: “And he can’t be making as many calls as I do. I leave voice mails all day, and send out tons of emails.” The rep who sits in the cubicle next to the top performer offered an observation: “I hear his calls. He’s going to the top level of the companies we’re selling to, and selling bigger deals.” One rep responded, “How does he sell to those people? I always get stalled at the mid-management level?” The neighbor replied, “He doesn’t know that it is even possible to talk to mid-managers and sell our product. In his training the new trainer told him that the only people he can talk to are those at the highest level, and that bigger deals are all that we sell.” Hmmm. Pretty simple point I have for you, but one that is time-tested: All that limits us is ourselves, and thinking and acting BIG gets BIG results. Here are some thoughts along those lines: • It takes just as much energy to ask for a large order as it does a small one. As long as you’re asking anyway, why not ask LARGE? • When you EXPECT to sell large, that notion becomes part of you; your thoughts, your actions, and your results. • Even when you don’t get the large sale or project you ask for, you will probably end with something more than you would have gotten otherwise if you had thought small. • The pros with the highest average orders, and the most overall sales are typically the ones who shoot for–and ask for–the biggest sales. The math works on this. • Where you target in the organization usually determines the size of the sale you’re able to get. Where are you calling? Aim high. • Percy Ross wrote a syndicated newspaper column, “Thanks a Million,” where he gave away millions of dollars to people who wrote in, and ASKED in the 24

right way. In his now out-of-print book, “Ask for the Moon–and Get It!” he also suggested asking large: “Take a chance; ask for something big! Most of us have a tendency to shy away from the things we want the most. What is it your heart desires? What is it you want the most? Who could give it to you or make it come true? Go ahead, ASK THEM!” • John F. Kennedy said that “Only those who dare to fail greatly will succeed greatly.” He practiced what he preached; he asked for the moon, got it approved by Congress, and received commitment from the thousands of people who ultimately made it happen in 1969. • Size DOES matter…as it relates to your thinking and subsequent action. Think and act BIG, and your results will follow. Continue making it your best week ever!

Your Business Eileen Schmidt

2016 in review As we wrap up the calendar year here at Material Handling, I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you who have participated in the Your Business column in 2016. We designate this space as a place to turn the spotlight on you, our readers, to recognize the achievements and milestones of your organizations. In the two years I have been writing this column, I have spoken to business owners, managers and representatives from Iowa and Texas to London and Denmark. You have taken time out of busy schedules to tell me your company stories, to explain your products and services, and to share your visions for the future with our readers at large. Thank you. This month I would like to share with you a few of my impressions based on these interviews. The companies we feature in the Your Business column are all celebrating anniversary years, so whether they are marking 5 or 75 years in business, these are the organizations that have beaten the odds. Multiple sources and reports document that getting a venture off the ground isn’t easy; the vast majority of new businesses fail in the first two years. In 2013, Forbes reported that 8 out of 10 businesses fail in the first 18 months of operation. So what is it about those we feature in Your Business that is helping them succeed? Here are four trends I have observed among those of you who are making it in the material handling industry: 1. Versatile and consistent These terms may sound different, but both play into achieving business longevity. As the technological revolution has taken the world by storm, it has been up to individual businesses to incorporate new technology into products and services. Sometimes this means a complete change to the types of products offered as businesses evolve. Nearly always it means a continued focus on customer service, reliability of products and the strength of business relationships. In a recent email to me, Bruce Dickey of Narrow Aisle Inc., explained that more customers are shopping online. Dickey, the vice president of sales, says this means the challenge is to kindle communication between customers, dealers and themselves to ensure those who may be in the market for one of the company’s Flexi Forklifts has the information they need. “In today’s internet-savvy world, buyers don’t have to rely solely on forklift dealers for information about various options available to them,” said Dickey. “Sometimes we turn an inquiry over to our Flexi dealer and the inquirer is their customer – a customer they never realized might be in the market for a Flexi solution,” he said. 2. Big data Building on the theme of how technology is changing the material handling industry, many companies we have featured have explained how they now use data to help their customers. 26

December 2016

It isn’t enough to just market products; customers need to know exactly how those products will fit with their specific needs. One company manager I spoke with outlined how the business helps clients analyze data to find exactly the right product before purchasing. Others track and use data information to improve their own products and processes. In an era of increasingly smart technology, companies are finding that gathering and interpreting relevant data is more than just a nice thing to have. It is a necessity. 3. Lean and green We are also hearing more about the utilization of green and lean manufacturing practices, which are proving to be the way many businesses now seek to operate. “We believe it is our responsibility as a company to initiate and put forth our best efforts to reduce waste and encourage environmental friendly practices for not only our employees, but for the words,” says the Hannibal Industries Inc. website. The company implements a trash collection service that automatically separates recyclable items uses energyefficient lighting fixtures, and supports alternative means of commuting for employees. 4. Global reach Finally, nearly all of the material handling firms we have featured have outlined how business relationships and product distribution are now global in scope, proving a willingness to reach out to customers and form partnerships across borders. FB Chain, for example, is owned by Swedish company Addtech AB, operates out of a production facility in Letchworth, Herfordshire in Great Britain, and employs another 200 workers across Europe, while also focusing on expanding its presence in the U.S. “We can deliver chain wear gauges almost next day in America due to its light weight, and also because of the time difference. We get a lot of positive feedback from US customers regarding the efficiency of our service,” said Peter Church, FB Chain’s managing director, in a recent telephone interview from overseas. Businesses of the future As we head into 2017, I look forward to hearing more of your stories and helping share them with Material Handling readers. Is your company celebrating an anniversary this year?

New lease accounting rules

Self-driving semis: B Double E Double R U Nsane?

The new rules for lease accounting approved by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) are scheduled to take effect for financial periods starting after Dec. 15, 2018 for public companies and after Dec. 15, 2019 for private companies, with a modified application for any other financial period presented. While organizations may be aware of the pending changes, many are not up to speed in their progress in transitioning to the new accounting standard, known as Accounting Standards Codification Topic 842 (ASC 842). The new FASB standard will modify the accounting for all leases which are in effect during the transition period. This means that although the standard applies to financial periods starting after December 15, 2018, it will require a restatement for the financial reporting of prior periods also.

Self-driving cars have been making headlines for a while now, but the latest news takes autonomous driving to a whole new level. In a stunt that portends the future of truck driving, Uber-owned Otto, a selfdriving truck startup, delivered 2,000 cases of Budweiser from Fort Collins, CO 120 miles down I-25 to Colorado Springs. The big rig was equipped with an array of cameras, radar and LIDAR sensing technology, and drove itself at an average speed of 55 mph, and was guided using GPS and hyper-accurate digital maps created on a scouting run. The truck was followed by troopers, Colorado government having approved the early morning trek. A driver rode in the truck during the freeway leg of the trip and took the wheel at Colorado Springs city limits.

MHEM releases forecast of significant 2017 downturn The MHEM quarterly material handling equipment manufacturing forecast for October 2016 was released with a forecast of a significant decline in new orders expected in 2017. MHEM reported U.S. material handling new orders for 2015 at a record high of $33.7 billion, with domestic demand also at a record level of $33.5 billion. The report went on to say that material handling growth has slowed significantly in 2016, but some improvements are expected for the year as a whole. For 2017, they reported seeing significant downside risks, but subsequent improvements in 2018 and 2019.

YRC Freight driver achieves 5 million accident-free miles In his nearly 40-year career with YRC Freight, Joe Brown has driven five million miles - and hasn’t had one accident. In honor of Brown’s accident-free achievement, YRC Freight will welcome him into the company’s Driver Hall of Fame. YRC Freight also will donate 50 children’s car seats to the Tennessee Highway Patrol - one for every 100,000 miles Brown has safely driven. “Professional drivers consider themselves responsible for their own safety as well as the safety of the motoring public. Joe’s 39 years of accident-free driving is a great example of this commitment. That is how safety is done,” said Darren Hawkins, YRC Freight president. Brown’s regular route is Memphis to Houston, which is more than 1,100 miles round trip.

IronPlanet sells record $99 million in gross merchandising volume IronPlanet®, an online marketplace for selling and buying used equipment and other durable assets, announced record-breaking results from its month-long September to remember auction events. Combining both online and on-site auctions, the company sold 9,890 items for more than $99 million in GMV (Gross Merchandise Volume), during 23 auctions in September. “September, 2016 was a record-breaking month, for the number of auctions that we held, the total number of bidders and buyers, as well as the total gross merchandise volume of over $99 million,” said Gregory J. Owens, IronPlanet chairman and CEO. “This is no doubt that we were able to achieve these stellar results due to our advanced data-driven technology platform, the power of our multiple online marketplaces, robust on-site auction events and the global reach of our more than 1.5 million registered users worldwide. We knew September was going to be a milestone month and it exceeded our expectations. We look forward to a great fall auction season and are excited to be gearing up for our largest Florida auction ever in February 2017.”

IronPlanet sells record $99 million in gross merchandising volume For the past several years, Carol Fontanez, rental manager at Jamco Inc in North Orlando, Fla., and her team have been finding ways to benefit their community. They have used the traditional methods — offering extensive discounts for forklift rentals to nonprofit organizations — and have taken a more unique approach — “adopting” a road in Sanford and making sure it stays clean and free of litter. This year, the

team wanted to do something even bigger. We knew we could do something more,” Fontanez says. After discussions with her assistant, Kaitlyn Ocker, the foundation of a plan was formed. Ocker suggested reaching out to the American Cancer Society. Since Jamco sells rents and services forklifts, Fontanez suggested painting one of its 5,000lbs Doosan Pneumatic forklifts pink and having a portion of the rentals of that forklift benefit breast cancer research. “This made perfect sense. Everybody knows someone who has been affected by cancer. Cancer runs in my family. We decided to benefit breast cancer because this is a very common form of cancer and some of our staff members have been personally impacted by this disease,” Fontanez says. The next step was to approach her boss, Tim Jamal, vice president of Jamco Inc. “I was immediately intrigued. My mom is in remission from ovarian cancer. I thought this was a wonderful way to help a good cause and it will definitely draw attention. I see it as a win-win for everyone,” he says. With Jamal’s blessing, Fontanez shared the idea with others in her department. “Everyone has gotten behind it, our service manager took over and made sure the Doosan G25P was ready for display at the American Cancer Society’s Oct. 29 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk/run in Orlando. Fontanez and several of her rental team members participated in the event. 15% of rental revenue earned will go directly to the American Cancer Society for research to fight breast cancer.

Caterpillar Chairman and CEO Doug Oberhelman elects to retire in 2017 After more than 41 years with Caterpillar Inc., Chairman and CEO Doug Oberhelman has elected to retire, effective March 31, 2017. During his time as chairman and CEO, Oberhelman has reinvigorated the company’s focus on serving customers while also driving a culture of quality and safety. Oberhelman led the company to its highest sales and revenue peak in its 91-year history in 2012, and, since that time, has successfully led the company through the unprecedented downturn affecting our key industries. The company’s board of directors has elected Jim Umpleby, currently a Caterpillar group president with responsibility for Energy & Transportation, to succeed Oberhelman as CEO. Umpleby, a 35-year veteran of the company, will join the Caterpillar board of directors and become CEO effective January 1, 2017. He joined Solar Turbines Incorporated in San Diego, California, in 1980. Solar, a wholly owned subsidiary of Caterpillar Inc., is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of industrial gas turbine systems. Early in his career, he held numerous positions of increasing responsibility in engineering, manufacturing, sales, marketing and customer services. Umpleby lived in Asia from 1984 to 1990, with assignments in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The Caterpillar board of directors elected Umpleby a Caterpillar vice president and president of Solar Turbines in 2010. He was named group president and a member of Caterpillar’s Executive Office, effective January 2013.

Vestil introduces new LP tank lifter Vestil Manufacturing Corporation, provider of industrial material handling equipment, recently introduced their new LP tank lifter. Designed to diminish the physical bending and lifting of LP tanks and promote a more ergonomically friendly workplace, this lifter is constructed of powder coated steel for both strength and durability with a 200 lb. capacity. Its simple open design, with dimensions of 38¼”W x 39?”L x 29”H, allows the user to quickly attach to a lifting device, such as a fork lift, by utilizing the centrally located chain/hook opening. Once attached, the lifting arms can then be extended/ retracted to best fit the tank at hand and be put in place to securely move the tank to the desired location.

PECO Pallets now accepted at Canadian tire stores PECO Pallet, Inc. recently announced that it has added Canadian Tire to its growing list of authorized distributors in Canada. Canadian and U.S. companies can now ship their products on PECO’s high-quality wood block pallets into all Canadian Tire locations. PECO Pallet rents its sturdy red pallets to leading grocery and consumer goods manufacturers, who use them to ship products throughout Canada, the U.S., and Mexico. PECO’s block pallet design allows for true four-way forklift entry, so pallets can be stacked and transported more efficiently. Empty pallets are picked up and returned to a PECO depot, where they are inspected, cleaned, and repaired as needed before being reissued to ensure consistent pallet quality.

Michelin launches new XDR3 Earthmover Tyre The new 40.00 R 57 and 53/80 R 63 MICHELIN XDR3 tires have been designed for rigid dump trucks operating in surface mines. One of the main challenges facing mine operators today is to reduce the cost per ton by improving operational efficiency, while still ensuring safety for all within the workplace, and thus increasing profitability. The new MICHELIN XDR3 responds to the needs of mine operators by incorporating three key innovations, which together increase tire life by a minimum of 10 per cent compared to its predecessor, the MICHELIN XDR 2. Compared with its predecessor this new

tread pattern offers multiple benefits. It offers better endurance due to improved heat dissipation capabilities – 8°C cooler in the tread area. A greater volume of tread rubber is in contact with the ground which improves wear and ensures better load distribution throughout the contact patch due to a lower contact pressure. Finally, interlocking shoulder blocks resist excessive movement during cornering and further reduce tire wear.

New adhesive provides optimal strength without damaging residue Properly securing appliance parts and electronic components is a critical part of the packaging process. Manufacturers need the confidence that the equipment will move from the plant to install without damage, including stains and residue from adhesives. 3M’s new Scotch® Clean Removal Strapping Tape 8899HP offers a long lasting hold with clean removal from a wide variety of surfaces. “Customers were asking for a product that was easy to apply, allowing users to save time and costs associated with rework,” said Mitch Hallan, US Product Marketer at 3M Industrial Adhesives and Tapes Division. “Applying 3M’s expertise with adhesives, we developed a tape that can reduce costs by ensuring a secure hold with less tape and reducing the risk of residue damage.”

Ergodyne introduces new Proflex® gel knee pads Ergodyne has announced the release of its new ProFlex® Gel Knee Pad Series. Workers will enjoy the same high quality and functionality of the current knee pads, but with a refreshed look and new innovative design. New ProFlex® Gel Knee Pad models include: 342 Extra Long Cap Injected Gel Knee Pad, 344 Short Cap Injected Gel Knee Pad with Comfort Straps, 345 Long Cap Injected Gel Knee Pad, 347 Long Cap Lightweight Gel Knee Pad, 355 Short Cap Injected Gel Knee Pad, 357 Short Cap Lightweight Gel Knee Pad, 367 Round Cap Lightweight Gel Knee Pad.
