What To Look For In An Industrial Services Company
From the construction of facilities and the modular fabrication of equipment to turnarounds and maintenance…industrial service companies play a crucial role in the industrial landscape. A good industrial service company will save its clients money, deliver high quality products and services, and help the company improve its overall productivity and efficiency. For these reasons, selecting the best industrial services company can be one of the single most important decisions in determining a projects eventual success. To help with that decision we put together the following list of key qualities to look for in an industrial services company.
Industrial service companies fabricate, install, and service equipment such as boilers, production equipment, and pipelines. It is crucial that the construction company rigorously follows all safety protocols, doesn’t cut corners, and doesn’t put employees at risk. We have developed 13 Pillars Of Safety which are at the core of our operations to help ensure safety stays at the forefront:
- Behavioral Based Safety Techniques
- Environmental Awareness
- Total Involvement At All Levels of the Organization
- Pre-Job Safety Walk
- Job Safety Analysis/Job Hazard Analysis
- Site Audits
- Identification of At-Risk Employees
- NCCER Certification & Craft Testing
- Drug Screening
- Safe Plant Worker/New Hire Orientation
- Approved Vendor List
- Daily Employee “Fit for Duty” Assessment
- Continuous Supervisory Safety Training Program
One of the most obvious benchmarks used to evaluate a construction company’s value is based on the quality that it delivers. This will include performing quality testing during the fabrication and construction process, meticulously looking for defects or other problems, and delivering results that you can trust. It is also important that an industrial service company utilize high quality materials and employee a knowledgeable, skilled workforce that has the resources it needs to succeed.

The construction company that you use will have access to high level assets such as expensive equipment and machinery, valuable product, and of course the plant itself. It is crucial that the contractor be honest and trustworthy, that they handle these assets with respect and care and that the company never tries to skimp or cut corners at the expense of a job well down.
STI Group emphasizes integrity and corporate responsibility in all that we do. We pride ourselves on safety and quality and we always seek to deliver outstanding customer satisfaction. We also deeply value our customers, employees, and suppliers and we strive to treat them with the respect and integrity that they deserve.
