ROCKVILLE, Md. - The Mechanical Service Contractors of America (MSCA) has announced that a Wisconsin contractor, Bassett Mechanical of Kaukauna, Wis., is one of five more contractors that have qualified for MSCA STAR status. MSCA STAR is a qualifications program that recognizes contractors who meet or exceed stringent operating and training standards set by MSCA.

To become a STAR contractor, companies must complete a detailed application covering a range of criteria, including maintaining a superior safety record, offering outstanding customer service, and focusing on continuing education and training for all employees. In addition, at least 25 percent of the contractor’s technicians must be UA STAR certified to ensure they employ the best-trained and qualified workforce.

A total of 74 companies have reached MSCA STAR status since the program was introduced in 2004.

The MSCA STAR program is independently verified by the National Inspection, Testing and Certification Corporation (NITC), an ISO 9001 and ANSI-accredited certifying organization.

“The MSCA STAR qualification assures building owners and managers that the contractor has passed an extensive, independently-verified screening of its core competencies, including a skilled workforce and outstanding customer service,” said Wayne Turchetta, chairman of MSCA’s board of managers and vice president of HMC Service Co., Louisville, Ky.

For more information about MSCA STAR, visit www.mscastar.org or contact Barbara Dolim at bdolim@mcaa.org.
