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
"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
"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

"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. "
