Tri-State Manufacturers’ Association will host a general meeting on Tuesday, November 1 at the American Legion in Fergus Falls. Members are invited, as well as prospective members interested in networking with their peers in manufacturing.
The schedule of events begins with a tour of INNOVA Industries at 4 p.m. INNOVA Industries has a depth of experience in meeting the metal fabrication needs of some of the Midwest’s largest OEMs, and is considered a premier supplier to companies such as Case New Holland, Bobcat, Nilfisk- Advance and JLG.
Following the tour, participants will have time to socialize and network at the American Legion. At 5:45 p.m. dinner will be served.
After dinner, meeting participants will be introduced to ICeBerG (It Could be Greener) via a presentation by Kathy Hodges, Jack’s Family Recycling of Alexandria, entitled, “Practical Solutions for Business That Impact the Triple Bottom Line.” Participants will hear interesting recycling facts. Calculate the energy equivalent saved on a particular recycling decision. Learn how to save money by reducing your “trash” output. Consider starting a “green team” in your company. Hear about the benefits others have realized. Understand the savings start with recycling and then expand to impact other line items in their business.
