2021 marks the 5th year of the ACE Awards. These prestigious awards recognize members of the industry who embody the values of Advocacy, Collaboration, and Education.

Past Winners

Winners over the past four years of this award span a wide range of industries and expertise from medical equipment to office furniture, from Dean of Technical Education to Deputy General Council. See all of the past winners.

These awards give the industry an opportunity to recognize its brightest stars, from long-standing expert to industry up-and-comer.


Each ACE Award winner receives a scholarship of $1,000 to award within their community. These scholarships can, and have, played a critical role in funding the education of a future generation of remanufacturers.

One student in a Diesel Mechanics program used the funding to purchase the tools he needed for his program. Another used the funds to help cover her costs of a summer program at her university to bridge the gap between her graduation from the foster care program and her start of a 4 year matriculated degree.
