Congratulations to the entire staff at Western Precast for a job well done once again! Western recently went through our unannounced annual inspection for NPCA, ANSI certified plant inspection. The independent engineering firm HPS representative, Ruben Peralez, arrived at our facility on July 13, of this year. Ruben spent the day with our staff and was hosted by our quality control director Daniel Quezada.
During the annual all-day inspection, our plant was graded and inspected on various items such as employee training, discussing and tracking of customer satisfaction, the holding of Quality Control meetings, current certifications by our quality control staff, safety meetings, raw material certifications, admixture conformance, reinforcement placement and tie procedure, form maintenance and quality, batch plant condition and a myriad of additional process checks. The inspection process is rigorous and complete. This is all done to assure conformance of all product to national standards and guarantee a quality product for our end users.
Through the tireless efforts of management and every staff member Western came through the audit with a perfect score. This score places Western Precast in an elite very small group of plants nationwide to achieve a 100% score. NPCA currently has 577 producer members and out of these 366 are certified. I am proud to say that historically this score would place Western Precast in the top 1% of all plants nationwide.
With this said as always it is time to get to work on upholding the outstanding quality and safety records that have become the benchmark of Western Precast. As you go through your day, stop and congratulate our Quality Control Director on his fine performance, as well as congratulating each of your coworkers on a job well executed. Success is a team effort and what a great team we have!
