BLOG ARCHIVE | Worldwide Receives MVS Award for 6th Consecutive Year


Worldwide Material Handling has earned the prestigious MVS (Most Valuable Supplier) Award for achievements in 2020.  The MVS Award is granted by the industry’s trade association, MHEDA (Material Handling Equipment Distributors Association) to less than 10% of all member companies. This is the sixth consecutive year that Worldwide has earned the MVS Award and they are the first to achieve the award both last year and this year.  This industry Award recognizes companies who have demonstrated an exemplary commitment to their dealer network, their employees and their community. 


To qualify for the MVS Award, Worldwide Material Handling was required to meet a series of criteria in several areas important to the distributor companies who do business with them.  In addition to confirming an on-going commitment to safety and employee training, award recipients must provide documentation of active participation in a program that “gives back.” For Worldwide, that entails various community donations throughout the year, including donations made by their own staff members.


MVS Award winners have demonstrated an overall commitment to business excellence by documenting programs in the following areas: 

  • Industry Advocacy
  • Distributor Advocacy
  • Business Networking
  • Continuing Education
  • Business Best Practices


Worldwide’s dedicated efforts to these categories have kept the team aiming for higher and higher personal achievements every year.

“Both of MHEDA’s Awards, the MVP and MVS, are difficult to achieve without a companywide commitment to excellence in education, networking and community service.  The companies that earn this distinction from MHEDA are the premier materials handling providers in the industry,” said Mike Wall, 2020 MHEDA Chairman of the Board and President of CSI Materials Handling in Westmont, IL. 

The Material Handling Equipment Distributors Association (MHEDA) is the premier trade association dedicated to serving all segments of the material handling business community.  MHEDA represents close to 600 companies in the material handling equipment business.  Located in suburban Chicago, the association provides services to companies seeking to improve their business through education, networking, benchmarking and best practices.  For more information, visit
