About MH Equipment

MH Equipment began in Peoria, Illinois in 1952 as one of the smallest Hyster forklift dealerships in the United States. From such humble beginnings, MH Equipment has grown to become one of the largest and fastest growing material handling service providers in the US. In 1994, the company was purchased by current CEO John Wieland. Since 1994, we have grown from a small company of 50 employees into an organization composed of multiple dealerships with over 900+ employees and 33 total and 29 servicing locations throughout Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. We have grown organically and through acquisition and have become a company rich in diversity and vast in geography. We trust as a company that we will always remain mindful of our humble beginnings, grateful for our success and hungry for our next horizon.
