Strong Hold Recieves 2018 MVS Award


Strong Hold was awarded the MVS Award for 2018. The Most Valuable Supplier award is given to those who demonstrate commitment to the independent distributor and the industry at large, a commitment to employees, community, and continuous improvement. 

The MVS Award is granted by the industry’s trade association, MHEDA (Material Handling Equipment Distributors Association). This is the third year that Strong Hold has earned this industry award created to recognize companies who have demonstrated an exemplary commitment to their dealer network, their employees, and their community. 

Strong Hold was required to meet a series of criteria in a number of areas important to the distributor companies who do business with them in order to qualify. In addition to confirming an on-going commitment to safety, MVS Award winners have demonstrated an overall commitment to business excellence by documenting programs in the following areas:

  • Industry Advocacy
  • Distributor Advocacy
  • Business Networking
  • Continuing Education
  • Business Best Practices

“We are honored to have received the MVS award for a third year in a row,” said Charlie Coombe, Director of Sales. “We at Strong Hold place MHEDA in high regard and are flattered by their acknowledgement of our efforts.” 

“MHEDA’s MVS Award winners represent a commitment to excellence in managing their business and in providing outstanding support to the distributor,” said Buddy Smith, MHEDA’s 2017 Chairman of the Board and CEO of CMH Services in Columbia, SC. “MHEDA is proud of all the MVS winners.”
