F.E. Moran Mechanical Services Earns STAR Qualification from Leading Trade Association


ROCKVILLE, Md. - F.E. Moran Mechanical Services was the first heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) service company in America to submit a qualifying application for the Mechanical Service Contractors of America's MSCA STAR Contractor Qualification program. On March 23, 2004, Bert Miedler, President of F.E. Moran Mechanical Services, received an official letter stating that his company had been recognized as an MSCA STAR qualified contractor.

"I'm happy they have selected F.E. Moran Mechanical Services," said Mr. Miedler. "I think this is a very important program, since it gives recognition to the superior training and expertise of union contractors."

The MSCA STAR Qualification program initiates a new standard of excellence which raises the bar for the mechanical service contracting industry. The program offers proof to building owners and facility managers that the STAR-qualified contractor is providing the highest level of skill, quality, value, and professionalism in the industry. F.E. Moran Mechanical Services was designated as a STAR because the company surpasses stringent business and HVAC service standards set forth by MSCA.

"MSCA is very pleased to qualify F.E. Moran Mechanical Services as one of our very first MSCA STARs," said Barbara A. Dolim, MSCA Executive Director. "F.E. Moran Mechanical Services' commitment to excellence and their focus on safety, education and customer service was quite evident in their MSCA STAR application. They have established themselves as one of the leading service contractors in the nation and MSCA is pleased to recognize them as an MSCA STAR."

"To receive the MSCA STAR qualification, 25 percent of our service journeymen had to be United Association (UA) STAR-certified - and I'm proud to say that all of our journeymen have that certification," Mr. Miedler said. "They are all very well-trained. They've received continuing education through the local Mechanical Contractor's Association (MCA) chapters, and different suppliers have held night classes. Local 597 also offers night classes that they take. That education gives them the edge to be the best in the business. And this honor gives us a new aspect of our business that we can market to our customers."

Contractors who achieve MSCA STAR Qualified status belong to an elite group. These contractors have verified that they uphold a strict code of business ethics, employ the best trained and most qualified workforce, maintain a safety record above the industry average, offer outstanding customer service and focus on continuing education and training for all employees. A third-party review committee determines qualification based on documented proof of criteria submitted by contractors. When the health, safety, and comfort of building occupants are on the line, it's vital to hire a highly skilled MSCA STAR contractor.
