INDUSTRYNEWS Service Spring Corp Employee and Family Receive Award The McAlear Group, parent company of Service Spring Corp, held their second annual Holiday Party on December 2, 2017 to cele- brate the hard work and dedication of its employees. During the event, the Mike and Gloria McAlear Service Award was presented to Service Spring Corp employee Josh Brenner (mainte- nance dept.) and his family. The award represents the passion of late CEO, Mike McAlear, for making a difference in the community through volunteerism. Brenner and his family were selected for the award because of their participation in company-led volunteer events and their commit- ment to giving back to the local community. "I had no idea that helping people would be so rewarding," Brenner said. "I have to thank my wife and two children for encouraging me to do these kinds of things – without them, none of this was possible." Bobbi Brenner, Josh Brenner and McAlear Group CEO Matt McAlear at the 2017 company holiday party Chamberlain Group acquires Systems, Inc. Chamberlain Group (CGI), in access solutions and products, has acquired Systems, Inc. (SI), one of North America's leading dock-leveler manufacturers. "Online retailers are driving growth in the warehouse space and that growth has increased the demand for integrated and efficient access solutions," said JoAnna Sohovich, CEO of CGI. "We're very excited about this acquisition because it expands the scope of solutions CGI provides by adding dock-levelers to our product offering and expanding our brand portfolio to meet the diverse needs of warehouse managers. It will also allow us to offer enhanced efficiency to end-users through the integration of automated solutions on our connected platforms." Sohovich noted that SI will continue to operate as they do now, with their President, Mike Pilgrim continuing to lead the dock-leveler business. "We're very excited to be a part of the CGI team now," said Pilgrim. "A family-owned company of their caliber has the kind of resources and Values-driven culture that any organization would want to be a part of."
