For the 12th consecutive year, A M King has been named an Accredited Quality Contractor (AQC) by Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC). A M King once again earned this prestigious national credential for its commitment to corporate responsibility – documenting this commitment in five areas: Quality, Safety Performance, Talent Management, Craft and Management Education, and Community Relations, Inclusion, Diversity and Equity. Only 229 of the nation’s elite merit shop construction contractors earned the AQC credential this year.
The stringent criteria set forth in the AQC program includes a requirement that companies must have earned Gold-level or higher status in ABC’s STEP Safety Management System. A M King is proud to have consistently achieved STEP-Diamond status in recent years – the highest level of merit-based safety awarded by ABC.
Members of the AQC program, which was launched in 1993, 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.”
