PCI Plant Certifications
Exceeding High Industry Standards
The PCI Plant Certification Program ensures that our plants have developed and documented an in-depth, in-house quality system based on time-tested, national industry standards. To become PCI Certified, our plants must demonstrate we have appropriate experience and training in manufacturing precast concrete, quality systems and procedures in place and a commitment to quality throughout our organization.
Quality Systems Manual
Each of our plants are required to develop a plant-specific Quality Systems Manual (QSM). This manual defines in detail how our operations work and is reviewed and approved by PCI. After the QSM is completed, an initial unannounced audit takes place. If all requirements are met, our plants are certified.
Once a year, each of our plants undergoes two thorough, unannounced audits. They are conducted by third-party engineers who audit the plant according to requirements specifically targeted to the products being manufactured at that location.
Inspectors also randomly inspect products to their project specifications to ensure that our products meet their design intent and criteria.
