KISSIMMEE, Fla., May 16, 2018 – Kissimmee Utility Authority’s fleet service division has been ranked among the 100 Best Fleets in the Americas for 2018.
The awards program, currently in its 16th year, recognizes and rewards peak performing fleet operations that incorporate accountability, technology deployment, collaboration, use of creativity to address challenges, quick repair turnaround, staff development, utilization of all resources, and practices that demonstrate a concern for the environment.
“To put it in perspective, there are over 38,000 public fleets in North America alone, and thousands more in South America,” said KUA president and general manager Jim Welsh. “KUA ranks #99 among them all.”
KUA’s fleet service division maintains more than 225 vehicles and pieces of equipment – everything from bucket trucks, hydraulic booms and fork lifts to generators and large power tools. The division also maintains bucket trucks for the City of Kissimmee.
