Committed to Environmentally Friendly Practices

Certified Enameling, Inc. recently received a letter from the Office of the Mayor of Los Angeles. In the letter, we were notified of the fact that we had been selected for an award and recognition from the city's Industrial Waste Management Division. We were one of only nine facilities in all of Los Angeles to be chosen for the Industrial Wastewater Pretreatment and Discharge Standards Compliance Award and Recognition. The award was the city's way of thanking us for demonstrating "outstanding compliance" with the regulations for handling hazardous wastewater.

Minimizing Our Carbon Footprint

Our experience in being recognized by the city is only one example of how committed we are to following environmentally friendly practices in our work at Certified Enameling, Inc. Recently, we were featured in promotional materials published by the local electricity utility. The story described our close collaboration with the utility company in looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint. With the help of the power company, we designed a custom system for our ovens, with the result that we were able to reduce our electricity bills and dramatically reduce the environmental impact of our energy consumption.

We are known throughout the industry as having a remarkably swift turnaround time, but we do not cut corners or look for easy solutions at the expense of the environment. In addition to taking the necessary measures to avoid leaving a carbon footprint that is any larger than necessary, we also use metal finishing products that are minimally toxic and have as little environmental impact as possible.

Low-VOC Architectural Metal Finishing Products

We frequently recommend that our customers use powder coating; as a dry coat that does not require any evaporation, powder coating releases minimal or zero volatile organic compounds (VOC). Other common low-VOC products include epoxy primers and polyurethane coating. If you are looking for a metal finishing applicator that is just as committed to environmentally friendly practices as you are, choose Certified Enameling, Inc.

    I never write letters, but today I felt compelled. Recently, I have been working on the project from hell. Nothing went right. The land had issues, the city had issues, the client couldn't make up their mind on anything, my staff was stretched thin, we were over budget, etc... I can honestly say that the ONLY thing that met and exceeded expectations was the part of the work that was done by Certified Enameling. Your staff was great, the job was done earlier than I expected, and the cost was to the penny what you quoted. Now if we can just get everybody else on par with you guys, life will be good. Thanks Glenn and Adrian. You guys are excellent!

    So far the initial reactions from our client and designer are all good! Thanks for all of your efforts in helping us make this a successful project; I know it has been an effort on everyone’s part. Thank goodness we assembled a good team of vendors to assist us with this project. So we only have a few more panels to put through the process so we will bear down a little longer.

    I want to take a moment to truly thank Glenn, Adrian, Scott and all the staff at Certified Enameling. I've been in the property development business for 30 years and I don't think I can ever remember dealing with a company that gets the job done like these guys do. The quality in which they deliver their service is truly appreciated. When they say the job is gonna be done in 2 days, they mean it, consistently. If all of my vendors provided products and services like the guys at Certified, I would never miss a deadline. I can't thank them enough!

    Hi Glenn, and the entire team at Certified Enameling. This week marks the completion of our 4,000 panel manufacturing run for this high profile project. It’s been a hectic 3 months to say the least. I just want to compliment the manner in which Certified Enameling stepped up to the plate, and did whatever was required to keep CPS, and ultimately our customer on schedule for this project. You went above and beyond the call of duty, and we sincerely appreciate your efforts. I am confident that no other firm, or team of firms in Southern California could have accomplished what we just accomplished in such a short time frame. Thank you for being such a strong business partner, and helping CPS achieve our goals.

    WITHHELD

    I've been wondering for years why when I get a metal finishing job done with another company it takes so much longer than with Certified Enameling? I'm talking double to triple the amount of time. I don't know if it's their process, their staff or their experience. The funny thing is that their work product is equal to, if not downright superior to the competition. Recently I decided, I really don't care how they do it, I'm just not going anywhere else anymore. You guys define expertise in every sense of the word and have earned my business for life. One less thing to worry about. Thanks Certified Enameling.
