First Metal Building Assembler in AZ and NV to achieve the AC478 accreditation

Image Building Systems, LLC headquartered in Phoenix, AZ, but servicing Arizona, Nevada and Colorado is the first Metal Building Assembler in AZ and NV to achieve the prestigious AC478 accreditation by International Accreditation Service (IAS). AC478 is a standard to recognize Metal Building Assemblers committed to excellence.  Achieving this accreditation is proof that Image Building Systems has the personnel, organization skills, experience, knowledge, management procedures, and commitment to assemble metal buildings.  Some of the requirements for this accreditation include: Documented Management Systems, Rigorous Safety Training, Quality Managers, OSHA Training, Documented Safety Plans, Site-Specific Plans, and many other documents.

Art Hance, President of the Metal Building Contractors and Erectors Association (MBCEA) congratulated Image and acknowledged, “Metal building contractors that join MBCEA set themselves apart from the competition. Those who seek and achieve IAS AC-478 accreditation set themselves further apart by committing to an unparalleled level of safety and quality. We congratulate the team at Image Building Systems on this significant achievement and recognize them not only as a leader in their geographic area, but in the industry overall.”

Ryan Klosterman, president and owner of Image Building Systems, LLC jumped at the opportunity to pursue the (AC478) accreditation.  “I believe all metal building companies should want to adhere to a higher standard.  The more quality metal building companies there are in the market only acts to grow the industry and customer base.  This accreditation gives end use customers, architects, engineers, and contractors the confidence that they are enlisting a company that truly cares about planning, quality and safety. Any company can say they care about these things, but how many are getting audited consistently by a 3rd party assuring their promises are being kept?  I view this as an incredible opportunity to continue to grow a culture within Image that promotes expertise, safety and quality and to show our customers that we value each and every project and customer we deal with.  We are very proud to be the 1st contractor in Arizona to achieve AC478 accreditation.”
