ROCKVILLE, Md. - The Mechanical Service Contractors of America (MSCA), a subsidiary of the Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA), has announced that 12 contractors recently met all the requirements for qualification and are now recognized as MSCA STARS.

According to MSCA, contractors designated as MSCA STARS have proven that they uphold a strict code of business ethics, employ the best trained and most qualified workforce, maintain a superior safety record, offer outstanding customer service, and focus on continuing education and training for all employees.

The new MSCA STARS include:

An independent evaluation of the applications is performed by the National ITC Corporation of Los Angeles. Once companies have been qualified as MSCA STARS, they receive a complete packet of marketing materials plus a certificate of recognition and other promotional materials.
