PanelClad Achieves AC478 Accreditation

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Jan. 28, 2022 - PRLog -- - The Metal Building Contractors and Erectors Association (MBCEA) announces PanelClad, headquartered in Visalia, CA, and servicing the California Central Valley, as the only metal building assembler based in California to hold the prestigious AC478 accreditation administered by the International Accreditation Service (IAS). AC478, Accreditation for Metal Building Assemblers Inspection, is a standard to recognize metal building assemblers committed to excellence.

Achieving this accreditation demonstrates that PanelClad has the personnel, organization skills, experience, knowledge, management procedures, and commitment to assemble metal buildings in accordance with code, specifications, costs, and deadlines. Some of the requirements for this accreditation include documented management systems, rigorous safety training, quality managers, OSHA training, documented safety plans, site-specific plans and other documents.

"The PanelClad company has a history of excellence in their endeavors so it's no surprise to me that they became accredited," noted Jen Heimburger, MBCEA president, while acknowledging the company's achievement. "Jared Bradford has always separated himself from the competition through his innovative assembly products.  Now PanelClad is leading the way in California with this accreditation and will prove to be a leader in our industry as well. Congratulations to Jared and his team!"

PanelClad saw the AC478 accreditation as an opportunity to demonstrate to its existing and potential employees that we are a company that takes pride in our organization and workforce. Jared Bradford, the owner of PanelClad, stated, "Since we began building our management and field teams, we used the AC478 accreditation process as a guideline to slingshot ahead of the competition, and right now it's not just about competing for work, we're competing for the right employees, and our employees have commented to us that they feel proud to work for a company that cares about our culture of growth, and that we take on special measures to ensure they're operating as safely and efficiently as possible."
