The largest manufacturing and supply chain expo of 2018, MODEX, is coming up quickly. The show is April 9-12 in Atlanta, and with more than 850 exhibits and 100 educational sessions, you could find yourself overwhelmed with your choices. A little planning will help you make the most of your MODEX experience. Use the following quick tips to make sure you utilize your time wisely.  
What is the key to success? It can vary from company to company, but for Hytrol it’s a relationship that started more than 50 years ago with our Integration Partner Network.
2017 was an excellent year for Hytrol, and we expect similar results in 2018. We plan for modest growth this year, which will allow us to focus more on refining the solutions that will increase our capacity and capabilities. Taking advantage of these opportunities, we will create more efficiencies in our processes and new technology that expands our product line.
I’d like to start with the obvious: 2017 has been the best year in Hytrol’s history. That’s not meant to discount any of the successes of the previous years—we certainly wouldn’t have seen the success we achieved this year had it not been for years and years of preparation and hard work. We know that it’s the work that has happened since Hytrol’s founding in 1947 that we build on to create the progress we see today.

Editor's Note: In honor of this year's Loberg Day festivities celebrating our late founder and the values he held dear, one of Tom Loberg's children, Ruth (Loberg) Poston shared her thoughts about her father and his legacy.  — What was Tom like as a father? How was he at home and/or at work? He was a hardworking, responsible father. Strict, but loving. He was honest and wanted to set a good example for us. He would never ask us to do anything that he wasn't willing or capable of doing himself. T...
