Local Events

Flag Raising Ceremonies

In June 2015, we celebrated the grand opening of our new office/warehouse complex in Londonderry, NH by hosting a major event.  In our main office, we have employees who come from 16 different countries. We had just finished installing 21 flag poles and each pole is now flying a flag of each employee’s home country.  We raised each flag and played all 16 national anthems.  In attendance were over 100 guests, including local politicians, bankers, lawyers, builders, friends, family, and employees. We were honored to have the event headed by the Governor of New Hampshire, Maggie Hassan. A truly spectacular day and  a huge recognition of each of our employees.  Many tears of joy were shed; after all it is not every day that one gets to raise the flag of his or her native country while living in a new land. Our international staff is our number one competitive advantage and we do not hide this “secret”.

Basic Logistics Training

We provide regular free seminars, either on the site of our clients or at our office.  The rules and regulations of our business are ever changing and it is our pleasure and privilege to help educate the local business community.

Doing Business in the USA

We have hosted seminars and tours for visiting foreign delegations from countries such as Russia and Kazakhstan who are in USA on “get to know USA way of doing business” tours.  We are happy to share the story of Highland and what made us successful as well as tips on doing business in USA.

Annual Open House

Every year we will be hosting an open house as an outdoor event by our beautiful pond. This is an informal gathering of employees, friends, vendors, clients and associates to appreciate  the service we all provide to each other. After all none of us could function without close ties to our local and business community.
