Earlier this year we announced a merger with MH Equipment, one of the largest and fastest-growing material handling service providers in the United States. With more than 900 employees, MH serves 28 locations across Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. In its more than 60 years of business, MH Equipment also understands the need for adaptation and continuous growth to keep up with an ever-changing industry. 

The MH team works diligently with customers to anticipate their changing needs and provide effective solutions that deliver results. They strive to build trust with their customers, as well as be good stewards of long-lasting partnerships and relationships. Louisville Switching is proud to be under the umbrella of an honest company dedicated to quality service, like MH Equipment.

The "MH Way"

The vision behind MH Equipment is to be regarded as an employer of choice, a trustworthy partner, and ethical market leader in the communities they serve by providing innovative solutions and unparalleled value to our customers. 

These company values guide how MH does business:

  • Equipping our Employees with a safe and encouraging environment that recognizes integrity, inspires passion, and enables personal growth
  • Strengthening our Company by disciplined effort to pursue effective relationships and implement sound business practices that ensure the long-term well being of the Company and employees
  • Partnering with our Suppliers through affiliation with highly respected manufacturers to represent their products with diligence and professionalism
  • Serving our Customers by being consultative in nature, transparent in practice, and passionate for being a good steward of their resources
  • Investing in our Communities for a positive impact by coming along side our employees' passions with support and financial assistance through our 'His First Foundation' charitable program

The company first opened its doors in 1952 in Peoria, Illinois as one of the smallest Hyster forklift dealerships in the nation. Today, MH Equipment is led by current CEO John Wieland, who purchased the company in 1994. Since then, he has grown it into an industry-leading, national brand. Mindful of its humble beginnings, the leaders at MH Equipment are grateful for the company's growth as they continue to expand and diversify with quality organizations like Louisville Switching.
