Meet attendee, Walter Griggs, founder and CEO of SquarePac. SquarePac is a one stop source for custom returnable packaging and material handling solutions based in Atlanta, GA. Griggs said, “The Summit has been an amazing opportunity to partner with global manufacturers and global distribution centers.” The 2018 Summit allowed Griggs to get in contact with larger companies who are taking SquarePac to “another level.” When asked about his experience, Griggs said, “This has been a great event, and I suggest anyone, MBE or non-MBE, should come out and take advantage of what the summit has to offer.”
