Akron, Ohio A recent donation of $7,500 in products from Akro-Mils, a North American leader in storage, organization and transport products, is aiding the educational mission of the Lehigh Career & Technical Institute (LCTI) in Schnecksville, Pa.
Akro-Mils donation to LCTIs Material Handling Logistics Technology program included plastic storage bins and containers, platform trucks, steel carts, dollies, shelving units and louvered hanging systems. The donated products were sent to LCTI from Akro-Mils booth at the 2013 ProMat Show in Chicago.
