EPCC hosts inside look into Uline Shipping Supplies

Thomas Capehart, Gross McGinley, East Penn Chamber Chair

The EPCC, in partnership with the Western Lehigh Chamber of Commerce, organized a wonderful breakfast and awe-inspiring tour of Uline Shipping Supplies, a leading distributor of shipping, industrial and packaging materials to businesses throughout North America. The 100 attendees enjoyed a morning filled with food, fun and inspiration from within Uline’s 1.6 million square foot warehouse and shipping facility located in Upper Macungie Township. We thank Uline for providing a wonderful program and for its contributions to our business community.

On May 17, the EPCC hosted a successful event on driverless vehicles. Attendees joined us at Brookside Country Club for breakfast and to learn how industries, drivers and residents are working together to improve traffic safety and how the future autonomous vehicles will impact our roadways. O
rganized in conjunction with the WLCC, the event featured George Kinney, Director of Transportation for the Lehigh Valley Planning Commission, and Chief Ed Colon, Upper Macungie Chief of Police.

Keep an eye out for an EPCC joint HALO event with the East Penn Foundation to raise funds for the both organizations’ scholarship initiatives for East Penn students. We hope to see you at an upcoming EPCC event soon!
