This month, Intelligrated is taking some time to celebrate the history and legacy of our company, as well as three significant anniversaries – the 10-year anniversary of the founding of Intelligrated, the two-year anniversary of the combination of Intelligrated and FKI Logistex®, and the 100-year anniversary of Alvey®, one of the many long-standing companies and brands that make up the roots of today’s Intelligrated.
It’s hard to believe that 10 years have passed since Jim McCarthy and I started Intelligrated. We opened our doors on September 4, 2001 with only 17 people in a small rented building in Blue Ash, OH. We faced challenges that many business startups face, with added economic pressures resulting from the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Back then, you could really feel everyone’s passion for coming together to build the company and provide exceptional solutions for our clients.
We’ve put together a brief video to celebrate our company’s history. Click play below to watch:
Now, 10 years later, I’m extremely proud of how the company has grown and that we still see the same passion from the over 2,000 people that come to work for Intelligrated every day. I’m also extremely proud of the strong 100-year history that sets us apart from other companies in our industry.
While it is exciting to celebrate these anniversaries and look back, I’m even more excited for the future. Even though we are still operating in a very uncertain economic climate, I look forward to continued growth, opportunities, as well as new challenges in the coming months and years.
