GROUP Contractors 2021 AQC Certification is Approved

What does it mean to be an Accredited Quality Contractor?

Launched in 1993 by Associated Builders and Contractors, the Accredited Quality Contractor (AQC) program provides recognition to world-class construction firms that have documented their commitment in five areas:

  • Quality
  • Safety Performance
  • Talent Management
  • Craft and Management Education
  • Community Relations, Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity

In earning the AQC credential, each member company commits to world-class safety by achieving Gold, Platinum, or Diamond level in ABC’s Step Safety Management System. Founded more than three decades ago, STEP dramatically improves safety performance among construction industry participants, with top performers achieving incident rates more than eight times safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average.

GROUP Contractors is proud to have earned Platinum level in ABC’s STEP program in 2021. We’d like to thank Associated Builders & Contractors for this recognition and for their continued efforts in creating a safer and more community-oriented culture in construction.

“Accredited Quality Contractors are the types of companies I want to work for and do business with because of the priority placed on world-class safety, culture, workforce development, innovation, diversity, and quality. Congratulations to the leadership and employees of GROUP Contractors for your daily commitment to corporate and community service; you exemplify the merit shop philosophy and what’s best about ABC membership.”

–Steve Klessig, 2021 ABC National Chair of the Board of Directors
