• MH Equipment Celebrates 500 Employed Service Technicians


    MH Equipment, a material handling solutions provider in the Midwest, is celebrating a notable milestone after employing its 500th service technician. MH’s certified technicians specialize in all types of material handling equipment repair and maintenance and are entrusted to be good stewards of customers’ resources.

    John Wieland, the current CEO, purchased MH Equipment in 1994. Then a small company of 25 service technicians and 50 employees based out of Peoria, Illinois, the company has grown into an enterprise employing more than 900 people in 33 locations across 10 states.

    John said, “It is humbling to have 500 technicians choose MH as their work family. We want our technicians to know they work for a company that is most interested in their safety as they work in all kinds of environments and on all types of heavy equipment.”

    MH Equipment showed the importance of loyalty to their employees during the pandemic by keeping everyone fully employed. John said, “When our technicians didn’t have customer work, we sent them to food banks and other charities across our footprint to serve our communities. Our employees invested more than 11,000 hours in charitable organizations at this critical time.”
