WPA Annual Meeting Recap

First of all, thank you to the WPA for putting on another fantastic event. The location, atmosphere, food and company were all great! The Palm Springs and Minneapolis climates are quite different in January, so our team enjoyed the long weekend of 70 degree weather.  Besides the nice weather and beautiful scenery, the event was very educational as well.

5 main speakers covered topics from the U.S. economic and political outlook to lessons from pallet industry leaders to philanthropic business decisions.  All of the speakers provided valuable insights for both pallet and equipment manufacturers.

It’s always nice to mingle with old friends as well as make new ones.  It was exciting to learn about new equipment and technology and to see the pallet industry embracing innovation.  Viking’s booth provided a glimpse at our new Parts Store and Customer Portal, as well as a video recapping our current equipment offerings and the Build Your Legacy series.

The annual golf event was a great way to put business aside for a while and enjoy the top notch course at Rancho Las Palmas Country Club.  Viking sponsored a “Closest to the Pin” event which was won by both Lindsey Shean of Valley Pallet and our own Nails Manager, Bryan Thornton.  We also put together a recap video of the golf event, which you can watch below!

Thanks again to the WPA and everyone that came out and visited us!  We hope to see you next year!
