Manufacturing Solutions Inc unveils new 92,000-square-foot facility

first_imgManufacturing Solutions Inc,More than 100 people came out on a rainy night last week to attend the Open House at Manufacturing Solutions Inc. The event was the official unveiling of the company’s new 92,000 square foot facility. The move into the larger facility accommodates both growth that the company has seen in the past year and anticipated new business.  According to Hirchak, the company is poised for double-digit growth in the next fiscal year.In his remarks at the event, Garret Hirchak, MSI founder and CEO, was quick to credit his employees and clients for working together toward the vision of keeping jobs and superior manufacturing right here in Vermont.  ‘While many companies are downsizing and moving manufacturing over seas to cut costs, our customers are working with us to find ways to keep that work in the U.S.  That helps the economy of Vermont and of the country.’ MSI employs the ‘Lean Manufacturing’ philosophy and Hirchak believes that’s just part of the reason that MSI is able to be cost-competitive.  ‘Because we can move our workforce between various client projects, MSI absorbs a client’s labor costs as they relate to the ebbs and flows of the production cycle,’ continued Hirchak.MSI offers businesses a wide range of manufacturing services from receiving and storage right through production, packaging and fulfillment. Concept 2 and Blodgett Ovens are just two of MSI’s clients. Manufacturing Solutions Inc. is located in Morrisville, Vermont. http://www.msivt.com(link is external). Source: Morrisville, VT (September 30, 2010) MSIlast_img read more

Story about Motivation: Jusuf Alešević is a professional Bodybuilder without a Leg

first_imgJusuf even opened his own fitness club and teaches others how to do this sport, and makes some money along the way, too.“Even if no one came and I had the fitness for myself, that would be enough for me,” Jusuf adds.Jusuf explains that healthy people and invalids cannot compete together and that this is the main reason why he does not want to compete, in the basic sense of that word.“It may sound weird, but I would love the most if I could compete with the capable ones because I see myself in that group. However, that is not allowed. Of course, that did not stagger me nor it will stagger me to quit doing what I am doing now. It never occurred to me at all. Simply, my aim is to motivate people and show them that there are no excuses, for anything in life. I know many people who, after seeing and hearing my life story, decided to do something in their lives,” Jusuf says.(Source: klix.ba/photo: blogspot.com) Jusuf Alešević from Bužim is a successful athlete, a famous bodybuilder known even outside of the borders of BiH, despite being a 100% war invalid and not having one leg.His life story can serve to many people to wake up from the state of stunting of body and mind and find inspiration for doing something healthy and useful.Life of the 41-year-old Jusuf is much more than an ordinary story about bodybuilding and sports. His life is a story about limits, the power of will and, above all, motivation.Jusuf says he is a family man, happily married and father to one child.“It was war time and the country had to be defended. I was 18 then and already in 1993 I joined the special unit Gazije in Bužim. Near the very end of the war, I was wounded in both legs. Doctors were fighting to save my leg for eight days, but they did not manage to do it so they amputated by left leg,” Jusuf recalls.After the war was over, he started a family and started solving existential issues. In that period, his health condition started deteriorating as well.“After the war I was somewhat stunted. It often happened that I had health issues and had to visit doctors. I would go see a doctor like an old man, with a bag full of medicines, and I took medicines and lived quite an unhealthy lifestyle. Many people are still like that: they are 30, but they feel like an old, rusty pot. I could not allow myself get to that point and I started taking care of my body and health, but in entirely natural way. It makes me feel great,” Jusuf says.Jusuf started actively doing bodybuilding in 2005.“Bodybuilding is a lifestyle; you have to be in it for 24 hours a day. It is not just spending two hours in a fitness center. You have to eat only pure food: rice, potatoes, chicken, cheese, eggs. Juices are completely eliminated. Trainings usually follow this principle: if you potentiate the muscle mass for a day or two with training, then you have one day of rest. If you go for definition, you train three days in a row, and then relax for a day. With persistence and hard work the results are inevitable,” Jusuf says, adding that man will certainly feel both physically and mentally better after this.Being a 100% invalid, it is not easy for Jusuf to perform demanding exercises which come with this sport. However, there are certain exercises with which he compensates for those which he cannot perform, and the results are more or less the same.last_img read more

Bankers say economy remains weak in rural parts of 10 states

first_imgOMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A new survey of bankers suggests the economy remains weak in rural parts of 10 Plains and Western states. The overall index for the region remained negative at 44.1 in July even though it improved from June’s 37.9. Any score below 50 suggests a shrinking economy, while a score above 50 suggests a growing economy, survey organizers say. Creighton University economist Ernie Goss says weak agriculture crop prices, retail sales and layoffs have hurt the bankers’ economic confidence. Bankers from Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming were surveyed.last_img read more
