AK welcomes back inside sales representative Jacob Koski from his trip to Australia. Jake is a valuable eight-year veteran of the AK Material Handling team who is forklift certified, a pallet rack specialist, and also a Tennsco steel shelving expert.
Below is Jakes’s welcome back interview.
What were you doing in Australia for a month?
I was on the vacation of a lifetime visiting family.
What was the most interesting part of the trip?
I would have to say the most interesting part of the trip was snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef with wild animals surrounding me. I had to wear a special wet suit to avoid being stung while swimming with the jellyfish.
Did you notice any material handling-related things while you were there?
While traveling through the city of Adelaide it was fascinating to see how other parts of the world incorporate material handling in everyday life from conveyors to distribution. I had the opportunity to see it in action.
What were some things you did while in Australia and what was the most valuable part of your trip to Australia? We went fishing, hunting, and snorkeling but spending quality time with my family tops the list.
Do you feel that your body has completely adjusted to being back in America?
No, it’s been a few days now and I’m still having trouble falling asleep and I am still waking up at unusual times.
What are the pictures of?
The top picture is a waterfall in the Daintree Rain Forest and the bottom photo is the coastline of Port Douglas in the northern part of Australia.
Thanks for sharing about your trip Jake. We are glad to have you back on our team!
