As an active member of MHEDA, the Material Handling Equipment Distributors Association, we are seeking the association’s MVS Award.

In addition, companies are required to reach out to a current MHEDA member distributor to request a letter of recommendation for the MVS Award. Verification of an outstanding partnership with a member dealer is an essential part of the MVS Award.
