Deshler Group President Robert Gruschow today received a 2016 Michigan Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award from Corp! Magazine, in honor of his leadership and hard work growing the Deshler family of companies. A morning ceremony recognizing the publication’s Most Valuable Professionals and Most Valuable Millennials was held at the VisTaTech Center at Schoolcraft College in Livonia, Michigan.

Corp! Magazine is a business-to-business publication primarily targeted to executives and entrepreneurs making a mark at their companies and in the greater community. Highlighting best practices and business success stories, Corp! aims to recognize innovation and inspire company leaders with relevant information and networking opportunities.

After receiving his MVP award, Gruschow thanked Deshler staff and members of his executive team, several of whom accompanied him to the ceremony. “I think it’s just a recognition for the Deshler Group, as to the hard work that our team has devoted to building the group of companies. I very much appreciate their efforts.”

Deshler has been growing rapidly, adding customers, expanding services, even building a new off-road products brand. From manufacturing and assembly to logistics and information technology, the Deshler family of companies provides complete solutions for its diverse customers.

As success builds, Deshler’s profile is on the rise. Gruschow agrees, saying “I think that we’re seeing some public recognition for our growth. While I’ve been given an MVP award, I see it as a recognition for all the effort the group has put into building the business.”
