Addison, IL, January 20, 2011 –According to the U.S. Department of Commerce and Bureau of Labor Statistics, material handling and logistics is one of America’s largest and fastest growing industries.  The consumption of material handling equipment and systems in America has grown to over $156 billion per year and employs in excess of 700,000 workers.  

This growth is due to the strategic role that the Material Handling and Logistics Industry has assumed in today’s business environment as companies are continually driving up demand for solutions that will enable them to improve order to delivery cycles, reduce inventory and satisfy changing consumer buying behaviors.  

To support this increased demand and satisfy customer needs Associated responded with a refocused business model which drove the need to increase their workforce for 2011 and beyond.

This new business model gives them the ability to leverage their unparalleled experience and industry best practices to evaluate a company’s current operations and recommend practical strategies to enhance its effectiveness and reduce overall costs.

To support this initiative effectively, Associated will be increasing its workforce by 12% in 2011.  This increase will include positions within every level of the company from Service and Sales personnel to Senior Management positions.  For additional information on specific positions that are available please refer to the Careers Page of their website at www.associated-solutions.com.

Michael Romano, President/CEO of Associated said, "We look forward to the growth and development of our organization. Over the past 50 years, our success has been driven by our employee’s individual and collective efforts which have earned our customer’s loyalty and dedication.  We are excited that the new human talent will put us in an even better position to satisfy our customers’ demands by bringing fresh ideas to our industry".
