Juan Castillo Jr.

Account Executive

Team Member since 2011

“In the material handling industry, we are met with many challenges to help create the correct storage solution. But, once you begin to understand your customers’ needs the challenge turns into a design, the design is then properly reviewed and explained to your customer, at this point you begin building a trust with your client. The trust is built when you show a sincere interest in their companies needs while seeking cost saving ideas without losing any integrity of the project. After the project is installed, your customer will quickly see the benefit of the efficiency of their new storage solution. At the end of the day that’s a challenge I’m happy to face every day!”
