It is hard to fathom that tomorrow is already October 1st, but I tell ya what, they are not lying when they tell ya, “time flies when you’re having fun”. The fun sure continues here at AK Material Handling Systems, as we have just hired another aspiring shipping specialist to help us leap into the fourth quarter of 2013. As of September 30th, 2013, Matt Johnson is an official member of the AK Team. AK welcomes Matt with open arms; he comes from a large background of warehousing knowledge and shipping expertise, adding to our already very talented warehouse staff. Matt will jump right on board as a shipping specialist; fitting right in with the crew, as he already knows Eric from previous ventures at another business. Please take a second and learn a little more about Matt through our welcome interview.

Awesome! It’s great to see that you support the local teams. Let’s keep it going – tell us something fun about yourself.
I have two kids. My son, Riley, is six and my daughter, Jaidan, is four. I also love hanging out with friends, watching sports, playing fantasy football & playing bags.
