Goodbye 2018!

Posted by author Far North International publish date

As we prepare to countdown and welcome the New Year , now is a good time to begin to jot down all of our New Year resolutions for 2019. Whether it be to buy your first home or maybe second, get healthy, quit smoking , start saving or maybe even cross of some things on your bucket list that you couldn't get to in 2018 ,  make sure that you complete them all  with a lot of enthusiasm and encouragement and always remember to feel proud of  yourself for all the hard work that it took for you to accomplish those goals!

Far North International would like to recap along with you some of our most memorable moments that we had in 2018 

Early in the year,we attended FenchTech 2018 trade show in Phoenix, Arizona! This was a very exciting and informative expo for us. We learned a lot about other companies such as Tenax, Waypoint, and Privacy Link to name a few. This expo lead us to establishing some great business collaborations that we are grateful that we attended in 2018

Along came the spring and we were off to Las Vegas for the National Hardware Show! We met approximately 2,800 exhibitors in just 2 days!!! We look forward to shows like this year round as we are able to meet face to face with some great inventors as well as see for ourselves some amazing products that we can combine with our very own! 

Fall came rolling into action and so did we at our first 5k marathon in Chicago! This was such an amazing experience for all of us as we were able to do something that is not only good for our health but it also allowed us to come together as a team outside of the office/warehouse setting! We look forward to many more in 2019 !!

Last but not least,the grand opening of our first distribution facility! We celebrated the beginning to our new road with a delicious potluck :) This is such a tremendous accomplishment for Far North International as we hope to continue to bring everyone around the world good quality products and strive to provide excellent customer service to everyone. We offer free DIY ideas that anyone can recreate in the comfort of their own home. Not too handy with wire cutters? We have you covered! With our free fast shipping you can expect to receive your product in no time.

As always,THANK YOU for supporting our business. We look forward to serving you in 2019. From the entire Far North International family to you, HAPPY NEW YEAR !
