LAS VEGAS, March 2013 – Scott Kelly, owner of Enterprise Trenchless Technologies, Inc., based in Lisbon Falls, Maine, won the 13th annual Contractor of the Year award sponsored by construction equipment manufacturer Caterpillar and leading national trade magazine Equipment World during a March 9 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
Kelly was chosen by the magazine’s editors for his dedication to growing his company and his employees, his passion for maintaining an excellent equipment fleet, his commitment to his clients and smart business practices.
To determine the winner of each year’s Contractor of the Year program, Equipment World’s editors spend a day interviewing the candidates and visiting their crews and sites. They also evaluate comments made by the contractor’s references listed on the application form. Some of the accolades editors heard about Kelly included: “They are a top-notch company, professional and responsive, and their people are trained to the max. They are really the experts in their field in this region. We don’t bid out anymore. We just reach directly out to them.”
All finalists received a four-day trip to Las Vegas and attended the NASCAR Sprint Cup race courtesy of Caterpillar, sponsor of the No. 31 Caterpillar Chevrolet, driven by Jeff Burton for Richard Childress Racing.
“Equipment World magazine is honored to recognize Scott and the folks at Enterprise Trenchless Technologies, Inc.,” said Dan Tidwell, senior vice president, group publisher of Equipment World magazine. “He and the other 11 finalists are great representatives of the construction industry. Their success is evidence of the perseverance, drive and strong values they embody.”
