Connellsville, PA (PRWEB) July 02, 2012
Ebtech Industrial Building Solutions (http://www.ebtechindustrial.com) is going beyond typical market expectations for its mezzanines, fabricated steel platforms, stairs, and armor plated structures by performing top-level quality control for their fabrication processes. Ebtech will be manufacturing multipurpose ballistic/blast utility structures, or MBUSs.
Suppliers of similar structures in the industry often do not take the time and expense to qualify the welding process and welders to military requirements. Ebtech decided the safety of its military customers and every customer they serve deserves this special assurance for safety and quality.
Specially alloyed steel gives the plates used for the blast and ballistic structures their unique characteristics. These alloys, which are governed by specifications written by the U.S. Government and the U.S. Army TACOM & TARDEC (Tank-Automotive Research Development and Engineering Center), can be difficult to weld. To verify and certify manufacturing processes using these specialty metals, Ebtech called upon an expert in the field of QA/QC and welding specification interpretation: Atema.
The two companies are concordant in their passion for quality in manufacturing. Atema specializes in interpreting and auditing standardized codes and specifications, while also providing training and consulting, making them a perfect fit to support Ebtech with their QC oversight processes, including their blast & ballistic structures projects.
Ebtech is known for their quality products (http://ebtechindustrial.com). The company boasts over 18 years of success manufacturing their specialized building solutions. Ebtech saw this partnership as an opportunity for continuous improvement in their welding process and as a means to doubly ensure weld quality and raise the bar for their employees to challenge their skills and creativity in developing new, innovative products and processes.
Atema designs, executes, and administers ongoing quality programs for various metal manufacturing and structural steel companies and associations (http://www.atema.com/welding). Atema emphasizes the importance of completely qualifying business processes.
The most important reason Ebtech approached Atema was to assist them to go above and beyond regarding their customers’ expectations. Ebtech’s managing partner, Donald Travis, asserts, “At Ebtech, we take great pride in what we do and stand proudly behind our products. We were excited for the opportunity to work with a company with similar values like Atema.”
