Quality has always been a foundation for Premier’s success. We are committed to operational excellence through sharpening worker skills, continually improving our processes and boosting product quality.
To ensure Premier’s value to customers, we constantly develop our team members and improve our processes to meet or exceed industry quality standards. Certification provides an excellent platform for ensuring consistent quality. Several industry-leading organizations have established guidelines for quality in the manufacturing and fabrication industries. Premier is proud of the dedication and hard work required from its employees to achieve these certifications.
International Standards Organization (ISO)
Our production and fabrication services have been ISO registered since 2007. Premier extended and expanded its program to be ISO 9001:2008 registered for all segments of the business in 2009. ISO standards require strict adherence to guidelines for quality control and documentation of all processes used at Premier. As our customer, this means that you can expect consistently high quality on every project.
American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC)
In 2010, after nearly a year’s preparation, Premier was awarded American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Certification, the most-recognized national quality certification program for the structural steel industry. Companies must adhere to strict standards and practices to achieve this certification. Inspection and evaluation methods (both internally and by the AISC) ensure that Premier’s practices and quality remain at the highest levels.
American Welding Society (AWS)
Every welder at Premier is qualified to the AWS D1.1 standard. This ensures best practices and extensive knowledge of current welding techniques. Every product that comes through our welding department leaves with a high attention to detail, and welders take pride in the quality of every weld. With Premier as a supplier/partner, you will soon realize the benefits of a customer-focused, management-driven, process-based quality management system. Premier wants to directly contribute to our clients’ reputation as high-quality providers.
