Why is this important to you?

The Architectural Precast Industry’s reputation is on the line each time architectural precast products are delivered to a job site. Equally in the balance is the reputation of the designer and owner who have specified architectural precast. When so much is at stake, the question often arises prior to accepting bids… “Who has the ability to produce high quality work?”

The APA Plant Certification Program was developed and written by architectural precasts for architectural precasts to ensure that claims of potential quality are fully substantiated. Standards set by ACI, ASTM, AWS, CSI, and PCI are referenced throughout the Program. APA Certification is a serious examination of a plant’s ability to uphold the high standards of quality set by the Architectural Precast Association which is dedicated solely for the betterment of the architectural precast industry.

The APA Certificate, signifying successful completion of the APA Plant Certification Program, is the specifier’s assurance of a plant’s ability to produce the highest quality architectural precast products.

Advantages of APA Plant Certification
-Specifiers are assured of quality potential
-Provides a system of production checks and balances

-Quality control programs are visibly evidenced
