ROCKVILLE, Md. - The Mechanical Service Contractors of America (MSCA) announced that five more contractors 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 wide 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 United Association (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 Corp. (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.

The five new MSCA STAR members are: Barr Engineering Inc., Santa Fe Springs, Calif.; Bassett Mechanical, Kaukauna, Wis.; Control Services Inc., Omaha, Neb.; Peterson Service Co. Inc., Medford, N.J.; and United Air Conditioning Service Inc., Baldwin Park, Calif.
