APS names McCarthy Supplier of the Year

McCarthy Building Companies was recently recognized by APS as an outstanding business partner at the 2014 APS Supplier of the Year Awards. In total, six companies were selected representing various supply chain-managed categories. McCarthy was recognized in the “Major Projects” category.

McCarthy was selected out of more than 4,000 different APS suppliers through a nomination process led by APS employees. The nominees were evaluated on their support of APS’s values such as commitment to sustainability, active involvement in the community and a focus on health, safety and environmental concerns. Companies were also assessed on customer service and overall performance.

“Our business partners are a vital resource in helping us provide safe and affordable energy for our customers,” said Barbara Gomez, APS Vice President and Chief Procurement Officer. “APS selected McCarthy and five other companies out of thousands of suppliers not only for their outstanding customer service and ongoing commitment to our company’s core values, but also for setting an example that we hope other suppliers will emulate.”

Earlier this year, McCarthy completed the installation of a large-scale 14-megawatt (MW) solar project in Yuma County called Hyder II for APS, which owns and operates the plant. In addition to Hyder II, McCarthy also completed the 18-MW APS Cotton Center Solar Station in Gila Bend, Ariz., and the 20-MW APS Chino Valley Solar Plant in Chino Valley, Ariz.

“We’ve been fortunate to work on three large-scale solar projects with APS, which is rapidly expanding its solar portfolio and solar leadership in the state,” said Scott Canada, Director of the Renewable Energy team at McCarthy Building Companies. “Our system engineering and construction expertise has helped APS harness the power of the sun and turn it into clean, renewable energy. We are honored to be recognized for our efforts by APS.”

To date, McCarthy Building Companies’ Renewable Energy team, based in Phoenix, has completed several large-scale solar installations across the desert Southwest representing a combined capacity of more than 70 MW of solar energy production. The division was named to Solar Power World’s Top 250 solar contractors list (rank #23) in September 2013.
