Rigid Global Buildings Achieves IAS AC472 Accreditation
Rigid Global Buildings, industry leading manufacturer in pre-engineered steel buildings, has achieved International Accreditation Services (IAS) AC472 accreditation for metal buildings.
Over the course of the two-day audit, Rigid excelled in all areas of the certification process. The IAS accreditation program is based on the requirements of Chapter 17 of the International Building Code® (IBC) for the inspection of the metal building fabrication process covering not only manufacturing but also the quality management system including personnel, product traceability, process control and administrative and technical procedures.
The AC472 certification process has three parts, A, B and C. A focuses on fabrication of structural weldments and cold formed products requiring welding; B covers the fabrication of cold-formed products not requiring welding, and C focuses on the design of metal buildings. Throughout these three parts, Rigid Global Buildings met and exceeded the necessary requirements for this quality assurance program for the metal building industry.
Rigid’s Chairman of the Board Alex Ghodsi said "I was so proud of the Rigid Team for not only their continued support and superior workmanship but also for their dedication to the accreditation process. Rigid has always been a quality manufacturer of pre-engineered metal buildings, this process simply proves it not only for our products but also our employees."
In addition to achieving IAS AC472 Accreditation, Rigid is also an approved fabricator for the City of Los Angeles, an approved manufacturer/fabricator for Miami-Dade and the City of Houston.
