Hy-Tek Material Handling celebrated its 50th Anniversary on January 22, 2013. Hy-Tek is a single-source provider of material handling solutions for an extensive range of industries including manufacturing, distribution, retail, pharmaceutical, food, electronics, and automotive. The 50th Anniversary announcement was made by Hy-Tek CEO Samuel Grooms at the Ohio Statehouse during a gubernatorial ceremony recognizing Hy-Tek for half a century of business success.

“The 100-plus employee-owners of Hy-Tek Material Handling are proud to join the exclusive ranks of businesses that have survived and thrived for 50 years. As we celebrate half a century of success serving the nation’s leading manufacturers and distributors, we find ourselves reflecting on what it takes to flourish over five decades. We attribute our longevity, in part, to our ability to nurture lasting relationships with valuable partners including our customers, suppliers, associates, and community. We look forward to continued growth over the next 50 years,” said Grooms.

A mixed bag may be the most appropriate way to characterize the current state of manufacturing based on the most recent edition of the April edition of the Manufacturing Report on Business issued by the Institute for Supply Management today.

The Department of Transportation’s Federal Railroad Administration and Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (FRA) issued its long-awaited Final Rulemaking for “Enhanced Tank Car Standards and Operational Controls for High-Hazard Flammable Trains.”

U.S. carloads were down 1.6 percent at 278,294 carloads, and intermodal volume was up 5.6 percent at 279,0123 containers and trailers.

Even though the immediate prospects of a long-term federal surface transportation authorization remain dim, various media reports suggest that at least short-term help could be on the way.

For anyone not sold on the ongoing impacts of e-commerce on logistics and supply chain operations, comments by some influential industry executives at the recent National Shippers Strategic Transportation Council (NASSTRAC) Conference and Transportation Expo definitely would help change that train of thought.
