NORWALK, CONN. — EMCOR Group Inc. was named the 2009 World’s Most Admired Company in the engineering and construction industry by FORTUNE magazine.
FORTUNE’s Most Admired list is an annual ranking, compiled after surveying 689 companies in 64 industries from 28 countries. The Hay Group, FORTUNE’s survey partner, asked 4,047 executives, directors and analysts to rate companies in their industry on nine criteria, from investment value to social responsibility. A company's score must rank in the top half of its industry survey. The full list of companies appears in the March 16, 2009, edition of FORTUNE.
"We are extremely proud to be designated among the world’s most innovative and renowned leaders in their fields,” said Frank T. MacInnis, chairman and CEO of EMCOR. "It is exceptionally rewarding and humbling to be named one of the World’s Most Admired Companies by FORTUNE; we look forward to continuing the dedicated service and commitment to our clients and providing industry-leading solutions for which we are being recognized in this prestigious fashion. I thank the 28,000 EMCOR employees who made this important award possible.”
Over the course of the past year, EMCOR continued delivering mechanical and electrical construction, energy infrastructure and facilities service solutions with a diverse range of new projects for companies and organizations, including government entities as well as many of the country's top healthcare providers, universities, power plants, energy services projects and infrastructure projects.
EMCOR has also continued its Touching Lives corporate responsibility program, which includes the further expansion of its Taking KidSafety to the Street program, leveraging EMCOR’s fleet of more than 6,000 service vehicles nationwide to display posters from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children of missing children. To date, EMCOR’s efforts have aided in the recovery of 130 children since the inception of the program less than four years ago.
