National Glass and Metal Achieves NACC Certification

The North American Contractor Certification (NACC) announced that National Glass and Metal Company Inc., of Horsham, Pa., has completed the NACC certification. The NACC program is an ANSI-accredited, third-party process that was built for the architectural glass and metal installation community.

The company’s notable projects include the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Citizen’s Bank Park and the Wells Fargo Center, as well as high-end retail custom storefronts throughout the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean.

Founded in 1971, National Glass and Metal has seen the architectural glass and metal industry evolve during the last five decades, as the exterior façade has become one of the most complex and critical components of any building. Realizing the value of a certification recognition, they entered into the NACC process with an open mind.

“Achieving NACC certification has been an enlightening and rewarding experience. It has caused us to examine all of our policies and procedures, and our company will be better for it. The certification process has reinforced our commitment to continuous quality improvement. It was a pleasure to work with the NACC team through the audit process, and we look forward to sharing the news with our staff and clients,” says Joseph Clabbers, president of National Glass and Metal.

The NACC program consists of several requirements intended to give building owners, general contractors, design professionals and other stakeholder’s confidence that the glass and aluminum installation process will be performed to meet the needs of the project.

“We are excited to see National Glass complete the certification process. They have always represented the industry well and now have the certification to back it,” says Jeff Dalaba, NACC program manager. “This program continues to grow and we continue to see more and more organizations realizing the value internally and externally to certification.”
