Steel King receives MHEDA award

Steel King Industries has earned the Most Valuable Supplier (MVS) Award for achievements in material handling 2021.

The MVS Award is granted by the Material Handling Equipment Distributors Association (MHEDA) to fewer than 10 percent of all member companies. This is the 7th consecutive year that Steel King, a manufacturer of storage rack and material handling products, has earned the MVS Award. This industry award recognizes companies that have demonstrated an exemplary commitment to their dealer network, their employees, and their community.

To qualify for the MVS Award, Steel King was required to meet a series of criteria in a number of areas important to the distributor companies that 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” to the community.

“Steel King is honored to be the only rack manufacturer who has earned this award since its inception. The achievement is particularly significant, as it was earned during a year of unprecedented business demand, global supply chain disruption, freight capacity challenges and general market uncertainty,” said Jay Anderson, president of Steel King Industries.

“Achieving the MVS Award demonstrates a company-wide effort to maintain the highest business standards, customer service, employee development and commitment to the betterment of the material handling industry. MHEDA is very proud of our award-winning members,” said Ted Springer, president of Springer Equipment Co. Inc. and 2021 MHEDA chairman.
