Subject: IOTRON and IMPELA processing of Bee Hives
It was nice to meet you and some of your fellow beekeepers Friday at the Michigan Beekeepers association meeting at the Kellogg Conference Center. I wanted to follow up with you and provide your organization Iotron’s information. I have attached the apiary document that I left with you so you could distribute electronically to whom you think might benefit as well as our general brochure. While at the Kellogg center I also had some nice discussions with Michael Hansen whom is the Regional Supervisor / State Apiarist. Working with Michael and Kathleen Prough, Michaels counterpart in Indiana, we have already set up the commerce guidelines to ship hives (supers) to our facility for processing. Also, Michael and I spoke about how it would be beneficial for organizations such as yours to work as a hub for organizing shipments to save costs for all beekeepers. With kind regards, Jeff Pohl Jeff PohlSales & Marketing Manager Iotron Industries USA Inc.4394 East Park 30 DriveColumbia City, IN46725 USA Tel: (260) 212-1722 Ext 302Mobil: (260) 450-5579Fax: (260) 244-2762E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org WebSite: www.iotron.com
