Aegis Fire Achieves Quality Contractor Status

AFSA Program Recognizes Excellence and Responsibility 

The American Fire Sprinkler Association (AFSA) has awarded Quality Contractor recognition to Aegis Fire Systems, Inc., Pleasanton, California. The Quality Contractor (QC) program was launched to publicly recognize and honor fire sprinkler contracting firms that have documented their commitment in four key areas of corporate responsibility: safety, training, quality of life (employee benefits), and industry and community relations. A company that meets the criteria set forth in the program is formally designated a “Quality Contractor” by AFSA. 

“I congratulate Aegis Fire on achieving the designation of Quality Contractor comments AFSA Vice President of Membership, Marketing & Communications Liz Messner, CAE, IOM. “They join other companies who are also committed to safety and training for employees to achieve excellence in their workplace and in the industry.” 

All eligible members are invited to apply for the Quality Contractor recognition. It is for AFSA Contractor members to be recognized for their effort in growing companies that produce quality work by providing a work environment that promotes excellence and responsibility in all its employees. Benefits of becoming a Quality Contractor include improved company morale and productivity, proof of having met the highest industry standards, high impact marketing tool to general contractors and building owners, authorizations to use QC recognition in bid documents and can use Quality Contractor recognition and logo on company letterhead. 

“Aegis Fire recognizes the enormous benefit and competitive advantage that AFSA programs and services provide to us and the fire sprinkler industry at large,” comments Aegis President Tom McKinnon. “Having quality AFSA products and services in our ‘toolbox’ has greatly enhanced our ability to train, mentor, and grow remarkably competent individuals such as Aegis’ COO Dave Karrick.” 

McKinnon continues: “I owe a great deal of gratitude to all of the AFSA contractors, associates, vendors (both past and present), and staff for coming together, creating, and maintaining such an amazing organization.” 

In addition to national and local recognition and promotion, contractors that receive this designation are allowed to use the QC recognition logo in bid documents, letterhead, business cards, brochures, and jobsite signs. Quality Contractor members may also use the program as a human resources tool by featuring the designation in job advertisements, including it as part of the employee handbook, and using it to develop benchmarks in quality, safety, education, employee benefits, industry image, and community activities. AFSA’s QC recognition program is similar to programs developed by other industry trade groups that reward their members who pursue a higher level of professionalism and is not an accreditation or certification program. The Quality Contractor Recognition Award remains in effect for three years from the date the recognition is awarded.
