The Association of Professional Material Handling Consultants, Inc.(APMHC) was organized in 1959 by several leaders who saw the need for more reliable, capable and professional services in the material handling consulting field.
APMHC is a professional society composed of individual consultants in the material handling field. It promotes and coordinates the exchange of ideas and information among members; encourages the improvement of analysis, synthesis, installation, and training; advances the profession through the development of standards of performance; and assists other groups in promoting material handling generally, and the consulting profession specifically.
