About MH Equipment


In 1952 MH Equipment started in Peoria, IL as one of the smallest forklift dealers in the U.S. and has grown to be one of the fastest growing and largest material handling and construction equipment providers in the United States. Struggling financially in 1994, the company was purchased by the present CEO John Wieland. Since then, MH Equipment has grown from a fairly small company of 50 employees into a business comprised of 31 MH locations across the country including 2 JCB dealerships.

Our growth has presented the challenge of bringing together multiple different dealerships over time. However, despite our diverse backgrounds, the opportunity to share the history and culture of our individual dealerships; and to grow and learn as a company from the incorporation of each, has been an exceptional experience. We have grown to be a company rich in diversity, vast in geography, with talented and passionate employees who share the deep commitment of improving the lives of others both professionally and personally.

After decades of successful growth in the material handling industry, becoming one of the largest dealers in the country, MH determined they could deliver their unique brand of People, Passion and Purpose to the construction equipment industry. So, in 2004 MH took on the JCB line of construction equipment which means, whether you are looking for a backhoe loader, compactor, excavator, skid steer, forklift or parts and service MH Equipment has what you are looking for and more.


About Our Business


At MH Equipment, we know that the world of material handling and construction equipment and service will not stand still and complacency in our industries can rapidly lead to extinction. That is why we continually strive to anticipate the changing needs of our clients and to develop new services and seek out new products to meet those changing demands.

While the bulk of our product offering continues to be the class I-V Hyster lift trucks, in recent years, we have worked to expand our product lines to better be able to serve our current customers as well as to be able to move into other market opportunities for future growth. Currently MH Equipment has expanded our product lines to include a variety of materials handling equipment such as trailer mounted equipment, compact forklifts, and container handling equipment - all in addition to our vast line of JCB construction equipment sold throughout our territory in Indiana.

Although we are constantly broadening our available products and services, MH Equipment still believes in the old adage of quality over quantity. That is why we only align ourselves with brand lines that build quality products and equipment; and who possess the same customer drive and focus we feel is necessary to do business. This characteristic of our manufacturers combined with our dedication to represent their products with diligence and professionalism ensures our customers are getting the quality they desire with the support they need.
