Riekes Equipment recognized as Yale Dealer of Excellence for 22nd Year
Riekes Equipment has announced its recognition by Yale Materials Handling Corporation with the 2020 Dealer of Excellence Award. This annual award honors Yale Dealers that have exhibited focused leadership and continue to drive their customers to the highest level of performance in all functional areas of materials handling.
To receive the Dealer of Excellence award, Yale dealers must meet rigorous business practice standards, a commitment to employee development, and performance criteria which are assessed and modified annually to ensure alignment with evolving customer expectations and heightened industry demands.
“Every year, the Dealer of Excellence recipients demonstrate their willingness to enhance capabilities and commitment to the safety of their associates, while meeting the increasingly demanding recognition criteria,” said Bob Sattler, Vice President of Dealer Business Development at Yale. “The consistency in which they stand out amongst a talented network of dealers is remarkable.”
“Our employees work hard every day to provide the levels of service our customers need and expect,” said Duncan Murphy, President of Riekes Equipment. “Although we have received this designation more than 20 times, this year is even more meaningful because of the challenges we saw across our industries and customers. Our commitment to improving operational efficiency and performance was put to the test in 2020 and I’m proud to say that our team’s dedication to service remained strong.”
Riekes Equipment will be honored along with the other Dealer of Excellence recipients at a special awards celebration in late June 2021.
