It was such a pleasure that I received the MHI invitation for mutual meeting and talks before CeMAT Asia, Oct 31st-Nov 3rd since Mr. George Prest, CEO of MHI and Mr. Tom, Vice President of MHI would both be coming to the show and this means a lot to me. We met on the first and second day of the exhibition and this doomed to be a great day.
Following I will give some brief introductions on MHI, the leading association in North America.
The Industry That Makes Supply Chains Work
MHI is the America’s largest material handling, logistics, and supply chain association. MHI offers education, networking and solution sourcing for members, their customers and the industry as a whole through programming and events.
To be recognized as the premier authority for the material handling industry, enhancing how supply chains work.
It was Oct 31st, Shanghai was a sunny day under golden Autumn season with cozy wind kissing at cheeks. I came at the right time and saw two giants- smiling, energetic, middle-aged gentlemen, wearing formal tie and suit, standing in the MHI booth, both smiles were amiable and they were talking together in a whisper and seemed to wait for me especially. Here I am!! We were so excited and started to say hello to each other, and we seemed have known each other for a long time. Mr. George and Mr. Tom, both were interested in our company and asked us how many times I have been in America and how was our business going on in America currently and how they can be a source of DEMO. WOW.
They were ready to help with the next step material handling equipment business development for DEMO, we talked about further details and their smiles on face and focus attitude impressed me a lot.
They were adorable experts, we were deeply involved in talks and I even forgot to take pictures with them at all.
Finally, on the second day, Nov 1st, I came again to MHI booth and we sat together and took the precious photos, I loved the pictures very much. I would like that time keeping in our heart and never phasing out. There will be no departure…
Time passed quickly, we will be having next shipment delivered to the United States of America in Dec. After that, 2017 will be flowing away and we will welcome the new year of 2018. What will 2018 be looking like? I don’t know but I am sure it will be more brilliant for DEMO Forklift, DEMO Group career, and DEMO managements and colleagues, DEMO Intelligent Material Handling business.
Though today will become a history, smile and warm heart keep in mind.
