The International Slurry Surfacing Association (ISSA) presented its first-ever President's Award to Microsurfacing Contractors at the association's 39th annual meeting in 2001. Tom Ritschel, president, accepted the award for Microsurfacing for a project in Clayton, Mo. The ISSA's President's Award is given "in recognition of contracting achievements which exemplify the highest quality of workmanship, and compliance with best standards of practice," according to the ISSA.

In 2012, MSC was again awarded the President's Award for the completion of the MoDOT I70 / I270 project in St. Louis, Missouri.
