May 2023 marked my 37th year in the material handling industry. What a wonderful ride it has been, in what I deem the "fast lane." McGee Storage and Handling has been blessed to achieve near 5X growth in the last decade. Could we have scaled further and raised the bar higher? Absolutely! Funny how we see more clearly with experience. I've always been competitive, and, reflecting on the early days, I'll admit my pride kept me from seeking wise counsel. We humans are not meant to "go it alone," nor are the people who find themselves in material handling.
