MHIA's Choice of Ohio as Location for NA 2010 Leads State of Ohio to Proclaim Material Handling & Logistics Week to Coincide with EventMonday, January 26, 2009
Ohio Governor Ted Strickland and Lieutenant Governor Lee Fisher issued a proclamation naming April 25-May 1, 2010 Material Handling & Logistics Week in Ohio. This event will coincide with the 2010 North American Material Handling & Logistics Show to be held April 26-29, 2010 at Cleveland’s I-X Center.
The proclamation states “The Material Handling Industry of America (MHIA) has demonstrated national leadership by highlighting the need for workforce development and Ohio looks to partner with them in the future to continue their successful efforts.” The proclamation was delivered by Steve Schoeny, Director of Ohio’s Strategic Business Investment Division by John Nofsinger, MHIA CEO on January 13, 2009 at the ProMat 2009 event.
“Our multi- and inter-modal transport capabilities place Ohio at the nexus of industry and opportunity in the materials handling and logistics industries,” said Lieutenant Governor Lee Fisher, who also serves as Director of the Ohio Department of Development. “To further our commitment to the logistics and distribution industries, Ohio has created a stimulus program that will provide more than $100 million over the next three years to cultivate continued success.
“Ohio is located within a day’s drive of 60% of the population of the United States and Canada,” added Steve Schoeny. “Our location, import/export acumen, infrastructure, and workforce all serve to strengthen Ohio’s position in the inventory management and supply-planning field.”
NA 2010 will feature over 150,000 square feet of exhibits from over 500 of the leading suppliers of material handling & logistics solutions for manufacturing, distribution, and supply chain operations.
