Posted on May 29th, 2015 by Heather West
Tubelite Inc.'s facilities Walker and Reed City, Michigan, successfully meet ICC Evaluation Services, LLC (ICC-ES) Acceptance Criteria for Quality Documentation (AC10). This third-party inspection by Architectural Testing, Inc. (ATI)/Intertek verifies Tubelite’s quality control process for its products, systems and materials.
“At Tubelite, ‘dependable’ is more than part of our brand identity, it’s part of our everyday culture, our products and our services. Our reputation for dependability is closely connected with our ongoing investment in quality, our continuing improvement initiatives, and our product development and certification efforts,” said Mary Olivier, Tubelite’s director of marketing.
Grace Bartrand, Tubelite’s quality assurance specialist, added, “Being a manufacturer with an AC10-compliant quality system also contributes to achieving Florida Product Approval for our hurricane-resistant, impact-rated storefront, curtainwall, window and entrance systems.”
ICC-ES requires a qualifying inspection of the facilities’ manufacturing products prior to issuing a new evaluation report. According to ICC-ES, “The qualifying inspection is intended to verify that the manufactured products are consistent with the products described in the evaluation report, and that the manufacturer has documented and effectively implemented a quality control system that meets all requirements of the ICC-ES Acceptance Criteria for Quality Documentation (AC10).”
