Plan your order ahead of time! Sending us your order with 5-7 days lead time will almost always give us enough time to get your order in to ship in full so we don’t have to send partial shipments.

Delivering IHC Service

It’s Saturday, January 18th, a bitterly cold and snowy morning in Chicago at 9:30 when AJ’s salesmen, Dave Beader, gets the call from his customer, Gold Standard Baking, that they are out of glue and need two pallets (2,940 pounds) ASAP or their production would be down completely. With the offices closed and truck line carriers all booked for the day Dave makes a quick decision, to keep his customers Insanely Happy he decides to rent a truck to pickup and deliver the glue himself.

IHC AJ Truck

He finds a truck rental company, rents a truck and then drives to the AJ Chicago warehouse to pick up the 2 pallets of glue for his customer.

Snow coming down, Dave loaded up the truck with the 2 pallets of glue. He then drives to his customer to ensure their production line would not go down.

He reached his customer’s dock and the product was unloaded. Saving the day Dave made sure he delivered to make an Insanely Happy Customer!

Now THAT is going above and beyond to keep your customer Insanely Happy!!

Winter Meetings at AJ & IHC MVP

Every year AJ Adhesives has a winter meeting at the St. Louis Headquarters to see how we can grow as a team and as a company. It’s always a good time to get together with all of our sales guys from all across the country.

This year IHC created an award system to thank our guys for all of their hard work throughout the year. We had quite a few titles to hand out; Social Media Mad-Man, Mr. Congeniality, Growth Bonus and our top award, our IHC MVP.  We presented these awards during the IHC presentation, and boy, were they surprised! The presentation was complete with disco lights flashing and the theme song from Space Jam blasting as the winners were announced. After all, it had to be an Insanely Happy event!

Our guys won their name on our plaque and a coveted IHC shirt. I think these pictures show how Insanely Happy they are to be our top winners for 2013.
