17 of the Top 20 Wall, Ceiling Contractors Are AWCI Members

Engineering News-Record released its ENR 2020 Top 600 Specialty Contractors Oct. 15 and, once again, AWCI members are heavily featured. Overall, 17 of the top 20 wall and ceiling contractors are AWCI members, led by Performance Contracting Group of Lenexa, Kan., which came in #15 overall, KHS&S Contractors of Tampa, Fla. (76th overall), Standard Drywall of Lakeside, Calif. (77th overall) and Western Partitions, Inc. of Wilsonville, Ore. (91st overall).

While the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect the industry in different ways, many among the top 600 did not see staffing as an immediate problem. ENR quoted Michael Cannon, CEO of AWCI member KHS&S Contractors–East Coast (Tampa, Fla.) as stating, “[W]ith higher unemployment, the quantity of available trade employees is not an issue; however, finding well-qualified workers is an ongoing challenge.”
