"Being able to compare their company's numbers to industry benchmarks helps contractors determine where they stand among their peers and where they may need to make adjustments," says Paul T. Stalknecht, ACCA president & CEO. "ACCA will continue to develop these types of benchmarking surveys and update them regularly, because it is important for contractors to have current, reliable information to make these assessments about their companies."
