T BAILEY INC. has adopted a Quality Management System (QMS) that was driven by the need to meet or exceed our clients’ requirements. Our system was built as the governing structure by which all of our production is controlled. It is an established quality standard modeled around the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), Certified Fabricator program, for which we have held certification as a Certified Fabricator of Steel Building Structures, Simple Bridges and hold all 3 Sophisticated Paint Endorsements since 2003. As a part of their annual recertification process, AISC performs an extensive third party audit of our compliance each year. T BAILEY, INC. holds the ASME U stamp and NBIC R stamp and all pressure vessel work performed by us is registered with the National Board. We also hold the Canadian Welding Bureau Certification per CSA W47.1 and are a Steel Plate Fabricators Association Certified Pipe & Accessory Fabricator. We are certified to build CalTrans Class R and Class N Piling and are on the WSDOT Quality Product List (QPL) for Steel Pipe Piling. Our Quality Manager is an AWS Certified Welding Inspector, API 653 Tank Inspector, and CWB Certified Welding Supervisor with over thirty five years of experience in the steel fabrication industry.
