Lakewood, NJ – November 18, 2020 – UNEX Manufacturing, Inc., the trusted industry leader in providing smart space solutions that transform the supply chain, has earned the prestigious MVS (Most Valuable Supplier) Award for achievements in 2020.

MHEDA (Material Handling Equipment Distributors Association) grants the MVS Award to less than 10% of all member companies. This is the 6th consecutive year that UNEX Manufacturing has earned the MVS Award. This industry award recognizes companies who have demonstrated an exemplary commitment to their dealer network, their employees, and their community. 

"UNEX has a large distributor network comprised of the very best companies in this industry. It's very important to us to provide our clients with reliable, local experts. That's why we work so hard to ensure our distributors have access to valuable tools, resources, and high-quality solutions that not only meet, but exceed our mutual customers' expectations."

– Brian C. Neuwirth, President of UNEX Manufacturing

“Both of MHEDA’s Awards, the MVP and MVS, are difficult to achieve without a companywide commitment to excellence in education, networking and community service. The companies that earn this distinction from MHEDA are the premier materials handling providers in the industry.”

– Mike Wall, 2020 MHEDA Chairman of the Board and President of CSI Materials Handling in Westmont, IL.

In addition to confirming an on-going commitment to safety and employee training, award recipients must provide documentation of active participation in a program that “gives back.”
