George Huber III, president of Industrial Kinetics, Inc., manufacturer of conveyors and material handling solutions based in Downers Grove, IL, was elected president of the Conveyor Equipment Manufacturers Association (CEMA) at the organization's recent annual meeting in La Quinta, CA.
As president of CEMA Huber sees opportunities in leading this 106-member trade group as the material handling industry rebounds from years of economic turmoil.
“It's an opportune time to advance the strategic objectives of CEMA and promote the lynch-pin role conveyors play in today's integrated material handling and logistics systems,” Huber said. “As an industry, our standards and technologies create value, efficiency and elevated safety in so many areas. It's a vital, exciting story to tell.”
As president, Huber will work with the board of directors, committees and CEMA staff to create business content and actively promote the capabilities of its members in North America. He will serve a 12-month term, ending in March 2012.
