Maumee, OH – March 8, 2022— CMS Corporation of Maumee, OH was ranked by the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) as #17 on the Top Military Contractors list.  The list ranks its commercial and industrial contractor members that build long-lasting high quality construction projects, based on work hours.

As an ABC Top Performer, CMS demonstrated world-class safety performance by achieving Diamond level in ABC’s STEP Safety Management System, which makes the top-performing contractors more than six times safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average, according to ABC’s Safety Performance Report.

CMS invests in and attributes its successes to its people, and its value proposition gives their employees purpose, delivers quality to their clients and strengthens their bottom line,” said Michael Bellaman, president and chief executive officer of ABC. “Congratulations to CMS for raising the bar in developing people, winning work and delivering that work safely, ethically and profitably.”

The listings highlight contractors that have earned ABC’s Accredited Quality Contractor credential for their commitment to corporate responsibility in quality, safety, talent management—including inclusion, diversity and equity—education and community relations; those that won national Excellence in Construction,® Safety Excellence and Inclusion, Diversity and Equity Excellence awards; and those that hold designations awarded to diverse companies to help procure work from government and private entities.

In addition to its ranking on the Top 200 Performers list, CMS was also ranked #21 on ABC’s Top Performers with Special Designations, #79 on ABC’s Top 125 General Contractors list and #147 on ABC’s 2022 Top Performers list.
