New Video on MHI View: Looking Back on 75 years of Service

MHI Turns 75 this year! Thank you to all of our members who have contributed to our legacy and to this vibrant industry – the industry that makes supply chains work. At MHI, we’re proud of where we’ve been and excited about where we’re headed. It all started in the early 1940s with a group of American industrial companies and the military communities working together two assist the World War II effort.

After the war, in 1945, these companies established MHI as a trade association. Overtime, MHI took on the management of some independent trade associations including the Crane Manufacturers Association of American, the Hoist Manufacturers Institute, and the Rack Manufacturers Institute. By this example, additional industry groups formed within the membership to represent specific sectors and as the market and technologies evolved, more groups were created. Today, MHI’s industry groups remain a core component of our association’s effort.
