“The purpose of the International Accreditation Service, Inc. on-site assessment is for the metal building assembler to provide evidence that they are following the management system and inspection practices and related criteria in AC478,” stated Sandi McCracken, IAS Senior Manager. Ms. McCracken further stated, “This includes evidence of following safety plans, training programs, inspection protocols, and the organization’s method of determining compliance with contract documents. The Pangere Corporation is commended for meeting the requirements of the IAS AC478 program and for being the first iron worker union contractor to become an IAS AC478 Accredited Metal Building Assembler.”

Steve Pangere, President and CEO of The Pangere Corporation, commented, “Achieving the AC478 Accreditation demonstrates our commitment to continuous improvement and significantly differentiates us from the competition.”

“We have realized a great deal of value in the accreditation process. I believe that this accreditation will secure our status as a ‘Best in Class’ contractor in the assembling of metal buildings,” stated Tony Pangere, Vice President of The Pangere Corporation.
