As we move into the holiday season, particularly into November, we want to take a moment to give thanks to the Industrial Athlete. We are talking about the athletes that move for a living and use their body to push, pull, lift, and carry. The athletes that don’t have an off season and who work a career well into traditional retirement. We put together a list of thanks we want to acknowledge you for!

We are thankful to the Industrial Athlete for:

  –  Helping to keep our store shelves stocked with food, beverages, supplies, and chow for our pets (and we know how hefty those large bags can be!).

  –  Replacing roads, bridges, and fixing potholes, making it easier for us to get from point A to B.

  –  Manufacturing the important pieces and parts from vehicles to airplanes so we can travel safely and see our friends and loved ones.

  –  Delivering packages straight to our doors through wind, rain, snow, and barking dogs.

  –  Providing electricity and plumbing to the houses we live in and the places we work.

  –  Milling lumber, building houses, businesses, and schools.

  –  Mixing batter, baking breads, churning butter, aging cheese.

  –  Being first on the scene of emergencies, putting yourself in dangerous situations, selflessly saving.

  –  Turning pipes, installing panels, wiring buildings.

  –  Laying down insulation and roofing to keep us warm and dry.

  –  Manufacturing the latest innovative devices.


Industrial athletes work through tough jobs, severe weather, during times of crisis, and when faced with difficult timelines and fast-paced work environments. They can be asked to do extraordinary things at any hour of the day or any day of the week. They are the backbone of society and pave the way for innovation, infrastructure, and development.

Thanking YOU this month!
