  • Have between $3 million and $15 million in annual revenues.
  • Have an excellent safety record.
  • Represent the construction industry in a positive way.

The Contractor of the Year program has been sponsored by Caterpillar since its inception in 2000. The winner and each finalist will be featured on the Equipment World website.
