Riekes Equipment Co. achieves MHEDA Most Valuable Partner status

Riekes Equipment Co. has achieved Most Valuable Partner (MVP) status, a credential earned by the distributor and then announced by MHEDA (Material Handling Equipment Dealers Association). Riekes Equipment is the fourth company of the association’s 550 members, and over 3,000 distributors nationwide to be awarded this honor.

To earn the MVP distinction, Riekes Equipment had to demonstrate a commitment to business excellence, professionalism and good stewardship in the following areas:

Industry Relations – working for the good of the industry

Customer Relations – demonstrating ethical and superior business practices

Peer-to-Peer Networking – providing innovative solutions by learning from the best in the industry and sharing our best ideas

Education – documented programs and well trained employees are an investment in the company’s success

Best Practices – financial benchmarking, operational metrics, policies and procedures and most of all experience complete the MVP package, a preferred partner in the market

Additionally, two letters of recommendation needed to be submitted, one from a supplier and one from a customer.

“For over 55 years MHEDA has been the industry source to improve distributor performance," said Duncan Murphy, Riekes Equipment’s President said. "Utilizing their networking, educational offerings, and metrics Riekes has built a track of continuous improvement for our team and our customers.

"The MVP Status is the confirmation of the value we add.”
