Construction Equipment and the Association of Equipment Management Professionals (AEMP) presented the annual Fleet Master Awards on March 10, during Conexpo in Las Vegas.

The 2020 Fleet Master Award for Small Fleets (<$100 million ERV) was presented to the Ohio-based Kwest Group, and the 2020 Fleet Master Award for Large Fleets (>$100 million ERV) was presented to Manatee County, Florida—the county’s fourth career Fleet Masters win.

The Fleet Masters Award is a prestigious, national honor meant to bring attention and recognition to all equipment professionals and their teams. These professionals, through their everyday duties, excel in meeting the unique challenges inherent in delivering cost-effective management of mixed fleets of on- and off-road equipment.

The entries were judged based on five major areas within their operations:

* Finance
* Information management
* Policies
* Controls
* Customer service

There were four finalists for 2020: Montclair State University, Kwest Group, Manatee County, and SGL Constructors.
