GEAPS Siouxland Chapter wins award

Over one half dozen Sudenga Industries staff members hold associate memberships in the GEAPS organization. All are members of the local GEAPS Siouxland chapter. The GEAPS Siouxland chapter was awarded the Chapter of Distinction award at the 2018 GEAPS Exchange trade show held recently in Denver, Colorado. The award is given to the GEAPS (pronounced JEEPS) chapter that not only increased their chapter membership but also retained the most members. We couldn’t be more proud to be part of such a booming chapter. Pictured below is chapter president and Sudenga’s very own, Gene Modder.

About Gene:

Gene Modder has been with Sudenga since 2007 where he specializes in commercial equipment sales. Gene has been a member of the Siouxland GEAPS chapter since 2008.

Gene tells us a little bit about why he enjoys being part of GEAPS why he personally encourage others in the grain handling and processing industries to join:

“The GEAPS organization is constantly working to better the grain and processing industry. Whether it is ongoing learning for people that have been involved in the industry for decades, providing college level certification courses, or working to attract the next generation to the industry, the GEAPS organization has always been on the front edge of constant improvement for the whole industry. I enjoy being part of an organization that makes everyone safer and better at what they do. That is why I encourage people to join.”
