LeMar Achieves AISC, AWS Certification
Continues strategic growth and expansion plan
DES MOINES, IA, November 17, 2011 – LeMar Industries Corp. has achieved the rare accomplishment of becoming both American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) and American Welding Society (AWS) certified.
“Our AISC and AWS certification is one of many steps we’re taking to raise the bar,” says Jason Luster, General Manager. “This initiative dovetails with our overall LEAN manufacturing continuous improvement plan and further communicates to our customers that quality is our top priority.”
LeMar’s AISC certification assures customers that the company meets the high quality certification standards for steel building structures. AISC certification sets the quality standard for the steel industry and is the most recognized national quality certification program for the structural steel industry. Companies that are AISC certified have been through a rigorous initial evaluation, and are subject to annual reviews.
AISC’s independent auditing company, Quality Management Company, LLC, confirms that companies have the personnel, knowledge, organization, equipment, experience, capability, procedures, and commitment to produce the required quality of work for a given Certification category, whether they are a structural steel fabricator or erector.
Likewise, LeMar’s recognition as an AWS certified welding fabricator gives customers the confidence that the products they have ordered were fabricated under a rigid quality system. The AWS Certified Welding Fabricator program verifies that companies demonstrate they have the resources, procedures, and personnel to apply a strict quality management system to the welding fabrication activities.
