Awards and Recognition

The Construction Equipment Rental Industry Needs Passionate, Creative and Dedicated People Like You!
Through the years, Sunstate has been the recipient of many awards and has been recognized by community and industry related groups. In recent years these included:

Best Practices Award by Suggestion System Development.

Sunstate was recognized by RER (Rental Equipment Register) as the largest privately held rental company in the United States.

Ranking Arizona’s Platinum Hall Fame.

Mike Watts was inducted in the American Rental Association Hall of Fame.

Sunstate Equipment Co. was ranked #1 in our category by Ranking Arizona, in addition to being an IMPACT award nominee and a finalist for the Industry Leaders of Arizona Award.


Sunstate Equipment was just named the #1 Construction Rental Company by Ranking Arizona. In fact, Sunstate has been ranked #1 sixteen times since 1999. In addition, Ranking Arizona listed Sunstate Equipment as one of the best places to work. We are very proud of this honor because from our start in 1977, we have always believed that great employees are the key to our success.


Sunstate Equipment has been named a 2016 Gold Level Recipient of the American Heart Association’s Fit-Friendly Worksites recognition program. The award distinguishes employers who champion the health and fitness of their employees by creating a culture of physical activity and health and wellness in the workplace.

The Fit-Friendly Worksites program is a catalyst for positive change. Worksites across the country are recognized for making the health and wellness of employees a priority. The American Heart Association’s “My Heart. My Life.” initiative recognizes employers for:

  • Offering employees physical activity support
  • Providing and increasing healthy eating options at the worksite
  • Promoting a wellness culture
  • Implementing at least nine criteria as outlined by the American Heart Association in the areas of physical activity, nutrition and culture


The Sunstate Equipment Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit charitable foundation, was recently formed as a way for Sunstate Equipment and its employees to give back to the communities in which they live and work.

The Foundation will receive half of its funding through voluntary employee contributions; with Sunstate matching those employee contributions, dollar for dollar. Employees can “sponsor” grant requests from their local communities, and funds donated or raised by Sunstate employees in their respective regions will stay in their region. This is designed to give Sunstate employees a greater impact on local charities with which they may be involved.
