Quality Contractor Recognition
The American Fire Sprinkler Association (AFSA) has awarded Quality Contractor recognition to Crawford Sprinkler Company of South Carolina, Inc., Lugoff, S.C. 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.
“The Quality Contractor program demonstrates AFSA’s commitment to recognize well-rounded companies that strive for excellence by promoting good work practices, a safe work environment, employee benefits and continuing education and training. It is not easy to achieve Quality Contractor recognition, but every contractor who has achieved this recognition will say the journey was worth it. The process forces the company to recognize their strong points and weaknesses, and improve their weaknesses.”
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.
“We congratulate Crawford Sprinkler Company of South Carolina, Inc. on achieving Quality Contractor recognition,” says AFSA Director of Membership Jeff Livaudais “It is worth recognizing when a company is committed to these key areas of corporate responsibility.”
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. When you achieve AFSA QC Recognition, your company is no longer just a contractor; your AFSA QC Recognition gives you a tangible, marketable asset to grow your business. You can prove you have met the highest industry standards and have been verified by a leading national trade association.
AFSA is pleased to recognize Crawford Sprinkler Company of South Carolina, Inc. as the newest QC designee. To learn more and to download the QC application.
