Blastco, a TF Warren Company, has become the first coatings contractor to be recognised as a 5 Star NIICAP Contractor. The NACE International Institute Contractor Accreditation Program (NIICAP) is a premier, industry-driven and industry managed accreditation program that validates a contractor’s quality assurance program, support practices, and production processes.

Blastco has demonstrated consistently superior work and management practices along with maintaining an average score of 4.0 for each of the two sections in an AS-1 audit.

NIICAP is designed and guided by industry experts to serve as a vital tool for coating contractors and asset owners to improve operations, reduce costs, increase visibility and opportunity, and prequalify prospective contractors. In this comprehensive and innovative program, coating contractors and asset owners who seek to hire them have a transparent, industry-designed and driven mechanism for improving product and service quality, extending asset life and performance, enhancing best practices, and mitigating business and HSE risks.

Contractors that earn accreditation through NIICAP’s audit process distinguish themselves as elite coating applicators by demonstrating the highest levels of specialty knowledge, product and service quality, and organisational achievement—and gain the ability to market themselves to owners and certifiers who seek to prequalify and hire only the industry’s best professionals.
