Steele Solutions Inc., has earned the prestigious 2018 MVS (Most Valuable Supplier) Award for a third consecutive year. The MVS Award is granted by the industry’s trade association, MHEDA (Material Handling Equipment Distributors Association), recognizing companies that have demonstrated an exemplary commitment to their dealer network, their employees and their community.

To qualify for the MVS Award, Steele Solutions had to meet a series of criteria in a number of areas important to the distributor companies that do business with the mezzanine and work platform manufacturer.

  • Business Best Practices

“We are honored to receive the MVS award for a third consecutive year,” said Kevin O’Neill, president of Steele Solutions. “As a member of MHEDA, we value the organization’s promise to serve the material handling industry by offering education, training, benchmarking and best practices for distributors and manufacturing companies worldwide.”
