The fleet maintenance division of the City of Marietta, Ga., recently received the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence's (ASE) Blue Seal of Excellence, the city announced.

ASE is an independent non-profit organization that works to improve the quality of vehicle repair and service by testing and certifying automotive professionals. In order to earn the ASE Blue Seal recognition, a minimum of 75% of the shop's technicians must be ASE certified. Among those certified technicians, the shop must cover all ASE certifications that correspond to every area of service the shop offers.

Within a 75-mile radius, five other public agencies have obtained the Blue Seal of Excellence, according to ASE.
