MH Equipment Receives Prestigious Hyster-Yale 2021 Group Awards

Peoria, Ill. (March 31, 2022) – MH Equipment recently received two major awards from Hyster-Yale Group for focused leadership and drive for success – the 2021 Hyster Dealer of Distinction and 2021 Yale Dealer of Excellence awards.

MH Equipment had a record-breaking year with eight recognitions being awarded across its regions. MH’s Illinois, Kentucky, Ohio South, Indianapolis and Great Plains regions were recognized as 2021 Hyster Dealers of Distinction, and the Ohio North region was awarded the 2021 Yale Dealer of Excellence award. MH Equipment’s Iowa region was recognized with both awards.

To achieve the prestige of these recognitions, dealers must meet rigorous business practice standards and performance criteria that are modified regularly to ensure alignment with ever-evolving customer expectations and heightened industry demands. They must also demonstrate excellence in a variety of areas, including new unit sales, aftermarket options, customer satisfaction, and more.

“Hyster dealerships and their associates have a thorough understanding of the customer’s application and their business needs,” says Bob Sattler, Vice President, Dealer Business Development. “These dealers are dedicated to helping their customers increase productivity while managing costs in pursuit of excellence. We’re delighted to honor their outstanding achievement as Dealers of Distinction and extremely fortunate to have them represent the Hyster brand.”

To make those accomplishments even more significant, MH Equipment is also one of only two dealers to have received both a Hyster Dealer of Distinction and a Yale Dealer of Excellence award for its work in 2021.

“MH strives to achieve this recognition, and when we are blessed to achieve it, we are even more proud of our teams that make it happen. This year was uniquely gratifying, because joining our six regions earning this honor, was for the first time our Great Plains Region. It feels good when hard work and investment is recognized by our partner, HYG. It confirms our mission to provide exceptional service to our customers with their material handling needs – and that people matter, passion inspires, and purpose unites.”
