October 28, 2009 – Mark C. Juelich, Executive Director of Toyota-Lift of Minnesota dba American Warehouse Systems located in Brooklyn Park, MN has been elected to serve on the board of directors of the Material Handling Equipment Distributors Association (MHEDA). Toyota-Lift of Minnesota Inc has been a leader in local material handling solutions since 1978. With the addition of American Warehouse Systems in 2003, Toyota-Lift of Minnesota has earned international recognition as a full service systems integrator.
Juelich, who earned a B.A. from the University of Minnesota, has been involved in the material handling industry since 1996. During his tenure Juelich has been an innovator in the industry, utilizing the internet and other cutting edge marketing strategies to modernize material handling equipment commerce.

This union was resoundingly beneficial for both parties, resulting in explosive growth and an international reach for the already efficacious Minnesota Corporation.

Our role as supply chain consultants to manufacturing and distribution empowers us to have a substantial impact on the global economy. As such, it is our responsibility as elected members of MHEDA to provide the knowledge base and tools necessary to help our members succeed. Through their success we will see more effective warehouse and distribution systems, lower operating costs and higher profits for industry as a whole.”
