BLOG ARCHIVE | WWMH Receives MVS Award for 9th Consecutive Year


Worldwide Material Handling, a recognized leader in the material handling industry, has been awarded the prestigious MVS (Most Valuable Supplier) Award for its outstanding achievements in 2023 by their industry trade association, The Material Handling Equipment Distributors Association (MHEDA). This achievement marks the 9th consecutive year that Worldwide has achieved the Award. 

The MVS Award is a coveted accolade within the industry, with fewer than 10% of MHEDA's member organizations earning this distinction. Worldwide Material Handling’s continued recognition as a valued partner within the industry underscores a commitment to excellence, professionalism, and responsible stewardship.

To qualify for the MVS Award, Worldwide was required to meet a series of criteria in a number of areas important to the companies who do business with them.  In addition to confirming an ongoing commitment to safety and employee training, award recipients must provide documentation of active participation in a program that “gives back.” 

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

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