New England material handling company honored once again for business excellence, professionalism and stewardship.

“Since my earliest involvement with Bode, I have found their company to be world class in so many ways,” - Adam McPherson, Panel Built Inside Sales Manager

Bode Equipment Company (BODE), New England’s premier provider of material handling, overhead door and loading dock solutions, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the prestigious MVP (Most Valuable Partner) Status by the Material Handling Equipment Distributors Association (MHEDA). This award makes the fifth consecutive year that Bode has received this top industry honor which recognizes outstanding achievements in business excellence, professionalism and good stewardship.

The Most Valuable Partner designation recognizes those distributors who have achieved, through documented processes and performance, excellence in customer service, supplier relationships, employee training and community involvement. To be awarded MVP status, a distributor must demonstrate achievements in the five critical areas of Industry Relations, Customer Relations, Peer-to-Peer Networking, Training, and Best Practices.

Bode supplier, Panel Built, considers the Londonderry-based company to be an ‘exemplary model to which all dealers should aspire.’

“Since my earliest involvement with Bode, I have found their company to be world class in so many ways,” says Panel Built Inside Sales Manager, Adam McPherson. “Their representation of Panel Built products has always been fair, courteous and above all, professional in every respect.”

Long-time Bode customer, Hypertherm, also recommended the company for MVP consideration based on their recent work on a new Logistics Center for the company.

“Bode Equipment collaborated with and supported our Facilities and Operations Teams throughout the six month construction and fit up process,” comments Hypertherm head of Warehouse Operations, Douglas Demers. “Their consultative approach resulted in improvements to the original facility design and simultaneously assisted in reducing overall costs. The attention to detail and professional quality, combined with the smooth communication flow and collaborative spirit, won Bode Equipment the project.”

The Hypertherm project consisted of the installation of 202 bays of pallet racking, over 220 uprights, 1,700 beams, 99 bays of shelving, 616 full-width carton flow lanes and a variety of aisle and upright protectors in just two weeks despite weather delays and project change orders and is one of many examples of why Bode has received this honor so many times.
