    Hear From Ivar's Clients

    "I've been working with Ivar on material handling improvements for 17 years, and he is always my 'go to' person when I have a challenge that needs a creative solution. Ivar doesn't just bring catalogs, he brings years of experience and real solutions. After-sales support is exceptional too, so I don't hesitate to involve Ivar on new projects."

    David Sutcliffe, Senior Manufacturing Engineer

    GKN Driveline

    "Ivar Lonon designed, quoted, and installed complex conveyor systems in several of our factories. The delivery, installation, and performance of the systems were done on time or ahead of schedule and performed perfectly from Day 1. Ivar's after sale follow up and response has always been done quickly and professionally. Ivar is the first person we call when we need conveyor systems."

    Joe Schmoeller, Executive Vice President-Operations & COO

    Kingsdown Inc.

    "I would personally like to recommend Ivar Lonon for his strong work ethic and his ability to solve customer problems while being a good business partner. He has worked with our company on many projects over his career and has been successful for both Advanced Equipment Company and Hytrol Conveyor Co."

    Gregg Goodner, Board Member

    Hytrol Conveyor Company Inc.

    "Ivar Lonon is a very knowledgeable warehousing specialist and also very aware what is available in the market in Material Handling equipment and software that will solve almost any situation that is presented to him. Ivar Lonon is strait forward and very trustworthy in what he recommends to improve your operation. He is also able to work with in a budget and give you the best outcome he can with the budget restraints that you put him under. My recommendation is to allow Ivar to design the system he sees that you need and then set your budget to his design. If this is done your return on the dollar spent will be a lot higher, than to make him conform to your Idea and be under an inadequate budget. I would not have any problem with letting Ivar Lonon redesigned our entire warehouse, and it would be the most efficient operation that there could be. "

    Mafford Myers, Senior Maintenance Lead Technician

    Apex Tool Group, LLC

    “Ivar Lonon was the AEC representative who handled all aspects of the project, from quote to completion. The result was a coordinated, streamlined process that generated complete satisfaction. Hytrol became my preferred supplier due to the help and service I received from Ivar Lonon. He knows the product well and is quick to respond.”

    Allen Russ, Corporate Engineer

    Matthew Gifford, Blow Molding Engineer

    "Ivar is a detail oriented professional with years of experience to bring to any material handling or packaging project. He is extremely easy to work with and would be a valuable asset to anyone who wants a successful project delivered on-time and on-budget. I would recommend Ivar for any project - large or small."

    Jonathan Lee, Solutions Provider

    “The combination of your engineering background and knowledge of your products make you a valuable business partner. Your design assistance, daily follow-up and work at the job site insured us of having a well-designed system brought in on time and within budget. Your continuous follow-up on all aspects of the job enabled us to complete this project without a dedicated project manager.”

    Eric Vann, VP Internal Services

Not only did he provide the solutions in term of acceptability and quality but he also managed to provide the solution within budget. Throughout the entire design phase, Ivar kept his cool and cooperated with us not as a vendor but as a partner. ”
