Advanced Handling Systems, Lakeland, Florida, a provider of integrated material handling systems, is the recipient of Hytrol Conveyor Company's Pillar of Wisdom Sales Recognition Award.

Bob West, Vice president of Business Operations for Hytrol, presented the award to J.J. Phelan, Chief Operating Officer of Advanced Handling Systems, at the company's national sales meeting in Jonesboro, Arkansas.

"Advanced Handling Systems, an aggressive systems integrator, reached this high level of recognition faster than any of our other customers in the nation," said Bill Hawthorne, Hytrol's Vice-President of Marketing. "This award is a credit to the leadership of J.J. Phelan and Jack Phelan, his father, as well as the entire engineering and sales team. They do a fantastic job for us and adhere to what I refer to as the '5 Ps'-- Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance."

In accepting the award for Advanced Handling Systems, J.J. Phelan said, "It is an honor to receive this award from Hytrol Conveyor Company after working with them for only three years. The symbolism of the Pillar of Wisdom is personally gratifying, and we appreciate the recognition of our efforts. The company promotes itself as the 'Hytrol Family,' and this is one of the ways they show their gratitude to their business partners."

The Advanced Handling Systems' name is now permanently displayed on a building column at the Hytrol plant in Jonesboro, Arkansas.
