Quality Contractor Recognition
The American Fire Sprinkler Association (AFSA) has awarded Quality Contractor recognition to Diamond Automatic Sprinklers, Inc., Boiling Springs, Pennsylvania. 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. 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.
An AFSA member since 1986, Diamond’s commitment to employee training has frequently found their apprentices competing as finalists in AFSA’s National Apprentice Competition at the annual convention and exhibition. In addition, the company has made the prestigious AFSA Honor Roll twice, employing students who graduated from AFSA’s four-level Fire Sprinkler Apprenticeship Training Series with a GPA of 95 or above.
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.

EDITOR’S NOTE: AFSA Quality Contractor recognition does not mean that the business’ products or services have been evaluated or endorsed by AFSA, or that AFSA has made a determination as to the business’ product quality or competency in performing services. Businesses are under no obligation to seek AFSA recognition.
