The passing of an industry icon

Henry "Tom" Loberg, founder and chairman of the board of Hytrol Conveyor Company passed away Monday, November 8 at age 87 of complications following heart surgery.

Loberg's leaves the legacy of a business that, according to its website, "has based its entire sales and marketing effort on a philosophy of fierce dedication to its distributor network and its customers."

Founded in 1947, Hytrol's history has been one of impressive growth. That growth has been fueled by the belief that distributors offer the most effective channel of service and expertise to Hytrol's customers. Loberg held that, "By working closely with our distributors, we form a unique three-way partnership between our company, our distributors, and our customers."

Material Handling Wholesaler offers its deepest sympathies to the Loberg family and the Hytrol team.
