2016 Fleet Masters Profiles
Since 2004, Fleet Masters honors have been presented by AEMP and Construction Equipment to recognize outstanding equipment management teams who excel in meeting the unique challenges inherent in cost-effective, efficient, and effective management of mixed fleets. A panel of industry experts selects honorees that have demonstrated outstanding fleet management capabilities through finance, information, technology, innovation, workforce development, safety, supplier relations and maintenance.
Gil Gilbert, CEM, fleet director of Henkels & McCoy Pipeline said, “Embracing new technologies, looking beyond their basic capabilities, all while empowering good people to excel is the best recipe for achieving world-class results in managing a world class fleet.”
Barry Schlouch, president of Schlouch Inc., said, “The Schlouch Fleet Management Team understands that the front line creates the bottom line. Our primary internal customer is the field user of all fleet assets and services, and they are dependent on our fleet management efforts to maintain competitive equipment cost rates to consistently win a profitable backlog. We have remained singularly focused on maintaining an acceptable level of equipment reliability since joining AEMP in 2005, understanding that the field expects the equipment to be available, safe, and productive on demand.”
