A NOTE FROM OUR CEO

     
 
Happy New Year!  I can hardly believe it's 2018.  We at Advance are fortunate to be celebrating our 60th anniversary this year.  We wouldn't be where we are without our amazing business partners--customers, vendors, installers and our own Advance team members.  We have worked hard over the years to earn the trust of those we work with and continue to be committed to quality in everything we do.  Having completed several hundred projects, 2017 was a year of tremendous growth for Advance, and we have you to thank for that.  We look forward to a strong 2018 as we continue to build relationships within our industry.
 
As always, if Advance can help you with your next warehouse storage project, please let us know. And if you will be attending Modex this year, please stop by our booth 2055 and say hello.
 
Wishing you all a very healthy, prosperous year,
John Krummell, President/CEO Advance Storage Products
