This 4 hour clinic will also demonstrate innovative Columbus McKinnon product used in material handling and motion control. The clinic will be followed by a  2 hour lunch & learn to give end users an opportunity to mingle with key Ace Industries & Columbus McKinnon personnel, ask questions & take a closer look at product. Since Columbus McKinnon is a Buffalo based company we thought it would be 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.
