75 Years in Business
Wiese USA was started in 1944 by Harold Wiese in St Louis and now operates more than thirty locations. It is still a family-owned business headed by Harold’s son Chip. The Wiese mission is to “Honor God, Value people and Feel like family.”
Their fundamental belief in treating others as they would wish themselves to be treated is a founding principle for Wiese. Today, this strong culture of servant leadership is shared and professed by Harold’s son, Chip, President and CEO of Wiese.
Wiese USA provides loading dock equipment, as well as overhead doors and operators. They specialize in high-speed doors often used in climate control conditions, when maintaining climate control and preventing pest and rodent infiltration is mandatory. They also carry freezer doors, air curtains and traffic doors, storage racking, and many other warehouse products. Wiese is also one of the largest material handling equipment suppliers in the nation.
Wiese is the leading provider of McGuire loading dock equipment. They have the unique ability to provide overhead doors from several manufacturers and, most importantly, provide doors in a week or two instead of months.
Wiese participates in General Membership Meetings and nearly all SCA events.

Annual Chicken BBQ
Join us for the annual Chicken BBQ! The SCA partners with the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) for a fun, entertaining evening to raise money for scholarships. Don’t forget some extra cash for the annual Cornhole Tournament, raffle, and to purchase remaining chicken halves. Tickets are available online here.
The deadline for Roosters & Hen sponsors to be included on volunteer t-shirts or event cups was Friday, September 3rd, so please let us know ASAP if you are planning to sponsor and don’t see your name below. We will do what we can, but we can’t promise we can add things to the shirts/cups after the deadline.
We are looking for volunteers! If you’re interested in volunteering, please email email@example.com. CSI mostly handles the check-in area, but SCA is looking for volunteers to help with handing out food, cleanup, etc. Volunteering is a great way to get to know others at the event!

About the Salute to Design & Construction
The members of the design and construction industry are gearing up for the Annual Salute to Design and Construction. The first Salute was held in 1985 as one of twelve “Salutes” to various aspects of Springfield’s community (others included Healthcare, Military, Agriculture and Government along seven others) sponsored by the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce. In 1988, the Salute Council took over the planning and implementation of the Salute to Design & Construction and it has continued to evolve over the years.
Teams of speakers visit area schools to talk about careers in construction year-round. If you can spend time discussing your career with eager young people, contact Megan at 862-1313 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Generation Next Membership Competition
In an effort to boost involvement and help owners and managers get their younger employees involved in the Generation Next group, Gen Next is going to pay the 2022 SCA membership fee for the company that gets the most new members to attend Gen Next monthly meetings in 2021.
Generation Next meets on the 2nd Wednesday of every month either in the evening or over lunch. Anyone that is a member of the SCA and is under 40 years old can be a member of Generation Next for no additional cost. New members will be counted at each monthly meeting, and a yearend total will determine which SCA Member Company had the most new members for the year attend.
If you have employees that are under the age of 40 and want to get involved in Generation Next or you want to know more about the group, please contact Tim Potthoff at email@example.com or Dana Haase at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime.
