Thompson Lift Truck: Chuck Leone Award

We celebrated the winners of this year’s Dealer Awards in a ceremony held March 12 at Virtue Rooftop Bar , during MODEX 2024. Six dealers were presented with awards in four main categories: Peak Performer, The Summit Award, The Apex Award, and The Chuck Leone Award for Dealer of the Year.

“We applaud the achievements of these outstanding dealers and are grateful to them for their stellar contributions to Hyundai Material Handling,” said HMH Executive Vice President/Chief Operating Officer Lewis Byers. “These six honorees exemplify our dedication to quality and commitment to our customers.”
