NORWALK, Conn. — EMCOR Group Inc., a leader in mechanical and electrical construction, energy infrastructure, and facilities services, announced that NASA has awarded its subsidiary EMCOR Government Services (EGS) with the Large Business Prime Contractor of the Year Award for its operation and maintenance services provided at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Dryden Flight Center, and Goddard Space Flight Center.

Selection criteria for the Large Business Prime Contractor Award included exemplary performance on all NASA contracts, demonstrating overall sound small business programs, meeting or exceeding small business requirements, using small business contractors to perform some technical tasks required by the contract during its execution, and sponsoring and participating in outreach activities. A panel of NASA business procurement officials evaluated cost-conscious business practices, innovative processes, and adoption of new technologies, as well as overall contributions to NASA’s mission and the agency’s Small Business Program.

“We’re honored at NASA’s recognition of EMCOR Government Services as a leader in operations and maintenance services,” said Michael Shelton, chairman and CEO, EGS. “We take great pride in doing what we do — incredibly well — and being recognized for our work on such complex and important contracts is a wonderful validation for the many thoughtful and hard-working men and women that comprise the EGS team.”
