Wing Fest - A Joint End User Training Clinic Presented By Hanes Supply & Columbus Mckinnon

  • $0.00

Wing Fest is a joint training venture presented by Hanes Supply and Columbus McKinnon, targeted towards end-users, providing an excellent opportunity to learn proper use, maintenance and inspection techniques for manual and powered chain hoists.

This 4-hour clinic will demonstrate innovative Columbus McKinnon products used in material handling and motion control. The clinic will be followed by a 1-hour lunch and learn to give end users an opportunity to mingle with key Hanes Supply and Columbus McKinnon personnel, ask questions and take a closer look at the products.

Since Columbus McKinnon is a Buffalo-based company we thought it would only be appropriate that a Chicken Wing lunch, provided by Buffalo Wild Wings, is served at this time. Additional sides and beverages will also be available.
