WARRENTON, VIRGINIA, February 19, 2013.
Shenandoah Fleet Maintenance and Management, LLC is proud to announce that we have earned the Blue Seal of Excellence Recognition through the National Institute for Automotive Excellence (ASE) at our Cumberland and Frederick, MD sites as part of our Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Logistics Vehicle Maintenance Contract.
Vice President Dave Jones comments, “We put our customers’ requirements first by ensuring that we bring the best possible trained and experienced technicians to each job. To accomplish this, we require and encourage each technician, through our employee incentive program, to achieve certification within a defined period of time after starting work with us. Because we are tasked at FEMA with maintaining vehicles and equipment to be ready to respond to disasters with minimal launch time, it is critical for our technicians to be trained and certified at the highest levels.”
Our contract with FEMA for Vehicle Maintenance Services encompasses six US locations where we maintain approximately 1,300 end items of equipment to support FEMA’s logistical emergency needs associated with natural and manmade disasters. Other than Cumberland and Fredrick, MD, we provide vehicle services in California, Georgia, Texas, and Alabama as part of this contract.
Our ASE-certified automotive technicians wear blue and white ASE insignias on their uniforms and carry credentials listing their exact areas of expertise.
ASE is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving quality of vehicle repair and service by means of voluntary testing and certification for automotive repair and service professionals. The series of certification exams cover a variety of automotive disciplines, including automobile and light truck, collision repair and refinish, medium/heavy truck, truck equipment, school bus, transit bus, alternate fuels, automobile service consulting, undercar specialist, and parts specialist.
This recognition is given to companies that have ASE-certified at least 75 percent of its automotive professionals. To remain in this program, we will be required to renew each year and confirm our professionals’ certification status.

WARRENTON, VIRGINIA, January 24, 2013. Shenandoah Fleet Maintenance and Management, LLC is proud to announce that Charles Myers, Automotive Technician at our FEMA Vehicle Maintenance Services project in Cumberland, MD, has achieved the ASE Master Automotive Technician certification. Shenandoah Fleet promotes a culture of incentive and education to encourage our technicians to obtain this level of professional expertise that we then pass along to our clients through the services we provide.
To motivate our technicians to achieve the ASE Master status, we kicked off a competition with a bonus of $1,000 to the first technician to achieve either the ASE Master Automotive or Truck certification. Charles won this competition with an ASE Master Automotive certification after passing eight tests that covered engine repair, automatic transmission/transaxle, manual drive train and axles, suspension and steering, brakes, electrical/electronic systems, heating and air conditioning, engine performance, and light vehicle diesel engines.
In our contract with FEMA we provide all staffing, materials, and equipment (not otherwise provided by the Government) to maintain the FEMA nationwide fleet of approximately 1,300 end items of equipment. We employ technicians in California, Texas, Georgia, Alabama, and Maryland. Since FEMA is tasked with responding to disasters with minimal launch time, it is critical that its equipment be maintained in a high state of readiness. Therefore, our technicians are critical to achieving that goal.
With this in mind, we have instituted the ASE certification program to require all technicians to achieve ASE certifications in at least four areas within one year of employment. This incentive for our employees directly results in our consistently meeting or exceeding our quality goals for our clients.
