Meet Gene Frees | Material Handling Specialist – Omaha, NE

Gene came on board with MH Equipment in January of 2011 in the Parts Department at our Omaha, NE location.  Having experience in the material handling business previously it was his ambition to get back into sales.  In September of 2011 he became our newest Material Handling Specialist in Omaha!

As a Material Handling Specialist, Gene’s focus will be on MH Equipment’s Hyster brand.  Hyster Company offers a complete line of lift trucks with over 130 different models configured for gasoline, LPG, diesel, or electric power. With broadest capacity range available in the industry – from 2,000 to 115,000 lbs. – each Hyster forklift is designed to meet your standards for dependability and cost of operation.

Gene has 2 sons, Ryan who is 24 and Austin who is 22.  He enjoys spending as much time as he can with them just chatting, watching football (Gene’s been a fan of the Dallas Cowboys for as long as he can remember), or playing basketball.  Gene enjoys fishing, walking, landscaping and taking his dog Bentley to the dog park so he can socialize with other dogs.

Gene says the thing he likes most about working at MH Equipment is the people because all of them are extremely helpful, kind and considerate.

Thank you, Gene, for telling us a little about yourself, and WELCOME to the MH Equipment family!

If you would like to contact Gene Frees for any of your material handling needs please call 402-734-1260 or gfrees@mhequipment.com.

Meet Brad Klosterman – Material Handling Specialist, Cincinnati, OH

Introducing… Brad Klosterman!  Brad is a Material Handling Specialist and has been with MH Equipment in Cincinnati since August 1, 2011 when MH Equipment acquired Yale Materials Handling in a deal that would make MH Equipment one of the first dual-brand dealerships in Ohio.

Brad says the most satisfying thing about working for MH Equipment has been the unquestioned support he’s received from everyone since joining the team.  He appreciates the fact that everyone supports what he is trying to do.

The Class II part of our business – Narrow Aisle and Very Narrow Aisle trucks really spark Brad’s interests because applications for this product usually require a deeper level of involvement with the customers’ business as well a high level of attention to detail.  Brad says this really affords him the opportunity to add value to what the customer is trying to accomplish.

Over the years Brad has been involved in a number of sales but the most unique was an application for the Department of Energy.  They needed to vertically transport barrels of waste product related to the processing of uranium.  Brad ended up selling them a mast assembly – no forklift – which was mounted to the floor and used essentially as an elevator for the barrels.

Brad celebrated 10 years of marriage to his wife Jennifer this last spring.  Together they have two children, Macy is 7 and their son Kellan is 6.  As a family they enjoy doing anything outdoors – soccer, baseball, going to the park, nature walks – you name it! They also enjoy movie night on Saturdays with the kids.  Brad has recently taught himself to play guitar.  He says it’s important to him to expose his children to music at a young age. When he has downtime he loves spending it with his kids.  It doesn’t matter what they are doing as long as they are doing it together.  Brad also likes to play golf (although he says he doesn’t get to very often anymore) and he enjoys staying physically active and working out.

Brad says he’s been a Cincinnati Reds fan for as long as he can remember – even when he was a kid growing up in Illinois!  He and his family would go to Chicago at least once a year when the Reds were playing the Cubs.  He must have had a little premonition that he was going to live in Cincinnati one day because he moved there after he graduated from College!

Brad says the best thing about working for MH Is getting the support of what a large corporation can offer combined with the feeling of working for a smaller company.

Thank you for sharing a little about yourself with us Brad!  All of us within the MH Family welcome you and look forward to sharing in your successes!

Meet Hersh Atkinson!

Hersh Atkinson is this week’s sales highlight. Hersh has been with MH Equipment since 2003 located in our Columbus, Ohio branch. Prior to joining MH Equipment, he worked for Bode-Finn for 6 years before MH Equipment acquired the territory. Hersh is currently a Material Handling Specialist responsible for the sale of new and used material handling equipment. Other previous careers include the management of a propane distribution center where he shared the common thread of being around propane fuel systems and forklifts.

Although there have been many numerous rewarding experiences over his years in equipment sales, Hersh says that the one that stands out the most is his partnership with Safelite/Belron company. After almost ten years of trying, he finally landed their business and helped them to set up fleet programs for two distribution centers that included new Hyster forklifts, high efficiency batteries and charges, wire guidance, racking, and more. Here is a story about his persistence with Safelite in the MHEDA Journal.

When asked what he likes most about working for MH Equipment, Hersh replied: “The opportunity to have access to and provide the needed equipment after determining the correct solution to a customer problem. We have the ability to represent a wide variety of products and services to truly be a solutions provider.”

Hersh has been married to his lovely wife for over 27 years and together they have a small horse farm that takes a fair amount of their time. When he’s not working he likes flying, anything to do with automotives (he actually owns a very rare sports car – only 66 of them exist in the US!), and spending time on or around water – swimming and boating.

Hersh is also a big fan of THE Ohio State University Buckeyes – having grown up in Columbus and attended OSU. He particularly enjoys the football program. His favorite food is Saganaki (pan seared Greek cheese). “It comes to the table and the waiter lights it on fire – gets the people in the restaurant excited every time!”

Please join me in thanking Hersh for his hard work and dedication throughout his years at MH Equipment. We look forward to working with him for many more years to come.

Quad Cities Hi-Lite

The Quad Cities branch is one of the three original locations of MH Equipment.  Now located in Davenport, Iowa, their beginnings started in downtown Moline, Illinois, however in 1976, a fire destroyed the Moline location and the branch relocated to East Moline where it remained until June of 2008 when they moved to their current location.

Nearly fifty employees make up the team at the Quad Cities branch including; Material Handling Specialist, Chuck Freeland, Aftermarket Representatives, Bill Baker and Mark Meyer, and Rental Manager, Jacob Greenwalt.  The Davenport branch includes a very large territory that spans over 320 miles from the southern most to northern most corners of the territory so these guys have a lot of land to cover when out on their daily sales calls.  To put it in perspective it would take six hours to drive from corner to corner of the territory!

Part of our mission at MH Equipment is to support the communities in which we live.  As part of that culture the Quad Cities branch are annual supporters of the Quad Cities Festival of Trees.  The Festival of Trees is the annual fundraiser for Quad City Arts, a local not-for-profit arts agency. It takes more than 3,500 volunteers,  over 650 designers, nearly 3,500 CenterStage entertainers, and over 150 Sponsors help to make Festival of  Trees possible. Festival has a $2.5 million dollar economic impact on the community and is recognized as one of the top events in North America, raising over $4 million dollars in support of local arts over a 20 year period. Over 100,000 people experience Festival annually, making it one of the largest attractions in the Quad Cities. This fundraiser makes it possible for Quad City Arts to provide quality arts programming year round for residents of six counties in Eastern Iowa and Western IL.

For the last seven years, Davenport has sponsored Upward Basketball for Underprivileged Kids. Upward Sports provides a fun kids sports experience based on healthy competition.  Upward Sports is one the world’s largest Christian sports league for children with leagues in nearly every major city.

The Quad Cities is home to John Deere Corporate Headquarters, the John Deere Classic at the TPC Deere Run, and the John Deere Commons which houses historical information on the company as well as a vintage 1900’s Deere dealership. Visitors to the Quad Cities also frequent the Rock Island Arsenal. During the civil war, the island was used as a prison camp, but today is utilized for production of military equipment such as the Howitzer & Abrams Tank.

Even though Davenport has a large group they are a very close-knit, supportive bunch!  Not only is the Quad Cities a great branch to work at but the area is full of fun and historic activities that can be enjoyed by the entire family!
