Toronto, ON — Our award-winning tradition continues yet again this year as Machinery & Equipment MRO has received two nominations in a prestigious competition for business journalism.

The Kenneth R. Wilson (KRW) Awards are presented annually by the Canadian Business Press. Business and trade magazines submit their best work in 20 different categories, and nominees are named from the top 10 entries in each category. Over 600 entries were received in the 2010 competition.

Machinery & Equipment MRO senior contributing editor Carroll McCormick received a nomination in the Best Technology/Industrial/Manufacturing Article category for his feature story, Naval Gazing, a profile of the maintenance operations on two Oceanex container ships working in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. It appeared in our December 2009 issue.

Columnist Peter Phillips was nominated in the Best How-To Article or Series category for How to Justify a CMMS System Purchase, from our September 2009 issue. The column discussed 10 questions readers should answer to know for certain if they should invest in computerized maintenance management software.

Our congratulations go to both of this year’s nominees. The category winners will be announced at a ceremony to be held in Toronto on June 1, 2010.
