Ben Pecoraro
Officer

I currently manage the Dangerous Goods Group of Basic Crating & Packaging Inc. I have been working with DG throughout my career starting with W.W. Grainger in 1995 and then moving to DGM Chicago 16 years later. The DGM franchise was then picked up by Basic Crating & Packaging Inc. We have since dropped the franchise and are operating wholly as Basic Crating & Packaging Inc. where the same quality of service is offered now.
 
I have been involved with the IACAC since 2017. In that time I have made many connections and a growing group of friends attending many of the events the IACAC has offered. My goal is to continue to strengthen the IACAC and have it be a positive place for people within our industry to meet new connections as well as discuss the current industry climate and challenges we all face.
