MH Equipment Receives Prestigious Hyster-Yale Group Awards

MH Equipment’s work in 2020 was recognized with a record-setting seven HYG awards across its regions.

Peoria, IL – May 11, 2021: MH Equipment recently received two major awards from Hyster-Yale Group for its focused leadership and drive for success, despite the worldwide uncertainty last year – the 2020 Hyster Dealer of Distinction and 2020 Yale Dealer of Excellence awards.

MH Equipment had a record-setting year with seven recognitions being awarded across its regions. MH’s Illinois, Kentucky, Ohio South, and Indianapolis regions were recognized as 2020 Hyster dealers of distinction, and the Ohio North region was awarded the 2020 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.

“We are grateful to earn such recognitions and are proud of all of our employees,” said Woody Hartwell, President of Sales and Marketing at MH Equipment. “The standards to be a Hyster Dealer of Distinction or Yale Dealer of Excellence are very high and challenging to reach in a normal year. To have seven of our regions achieve this special accomplishment in such a challenging year is amazing – and we feel blessed.”
