In the first part of June, Jason Glover and Kent Grange attended the GEAPS (Grain Elevator and Processing Society) conference in Ames, IA. The GEAPS event was an opportunity to showcase Thompson Specialty Services and the services we provide.
There were many Co-op and Elevator Groups represented at this conference. It was well attended and that gave TSS an opportunity to speak with many General Managers, Operation Managers and Safety Managers from different regions in IA, NE, KS and MO. We showcased our Infrared Thermal Imaging, Arc Flash Risk Assessment and Preventive Maintenance programs.
Why did we attend this conference? GEAPS’ Mission: “An international professional society dedicated to providing its members with forums to generate leadership, innovation and excellence in grain-related industry operations.” By becoming a member into GEAPS, this provides an opportunity for Thompson Specialty Services to expand into a market area that is being underserved. We look forward to continuing and expanding our many services to the Grain Industry.
In August, we will be attending the NGFA (National Grain and Feed Association)/GJ (Grain Journal) Safety Grain Quality Conference in Omaha.
