“This award means so much to our company,” said Van Clarkson, Fairchild Equipment President and MHEDA Board Member. “It means we are among the best of our peers and are working every day to embody our Core Values: Family Values, Safety Always, Customers for Life, Employer of Choice, and being Active in our Communities. Lastly, I’d like to congratulate our amazing employees.

“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.
