Gaylor Electric says it has again been named an Accredited Quality Contractor (AQC) by Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) for 2022. It is one of 450 merit shop contractors to have earned the credential in 2021.
The Indiana-headquartered contractor has an office in Moorseville.
“Gaylor Electric is committed to excellence in pursuit of industry impact,” Gaylor president and CEO Chuck Goodrich said in a statement earlier in October. “Along with delivering a quality project to our clients, we remain focused on improving safety standards in the industry, strengthening employee relationships, and initiating personal development.”
Launched nearly 30 years ago, ABC’s AQC program provides recognition to construction firms that have documented their commitment in five areas:
• Safety performance
• Talent management, and inclusion, diversity, and equity
• Craft and management education
• Community relations
“Accredited Quality Contractors set the standard in the contracting community in safety, culture, workforce development, innovation, diversity and quality,” said 2022 ABC National Chair of the Board of Directors Stephanie Schmidt, president of Poole Anderson Construction, State College, Pennsylvania. “Congratulations to this high-performing construction company. Daily, the leaders and employees of Gaylor Electric commit to the highest level of corporate and community achievement, exemplifying the best about ABC membership.”
In earning the AQC credential, each member company commits to world-class safety by achieving Gold, Platinum, or Diamond level in ABC’s STEP Safety Management System.
Gaylor has once again earned the Diamond level. Founded more than three decades ago, STEP dramatically improves safety performance among construction industry participants, with top performers achieving incident rates more than eight times safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average.
AQC members also take the following pledge:
As an Accredited Quality Contractor, our company is committed to providing our clients with the highest quality construction services, and we care deeply about our employees and the communities in which we build. We are proud to be part of the construction industry and are dedicated to the principles of free enterprise. We commit ourselves to serve our communities and provide our employees with the skills they need to work safely and productively in order to meet the needs of our clients.
AQC is recognized by Construction Users Roundtable, an organization founded by construction project owners.
