Our Quality Commitment

With several of our business units serving customers for 100 years or more, the drive to maintain the highest levels of quality performance on behalf of our customers has long since been engrained into our culture. In fact, it’s one of the main reasons that we have proudly earned high volumes of repeat business from so many high quality customer companies year after year.

Everyone representing any Babcock business from the top executives to each individual at each job site understands that their main goal is to deliver what our client contracts for—consistent with all specifications, codes, standards, and delivery schedules, as well as always meeting or exceeding the highest expectations.

With all required ASME certifications in place, as well as our recent earning of an upgraded ISO 9001-2015 certification, we have codified our beliefs into a formal Quality Policy:

We are committed to providing Customers with quality products and services that meet or exceed our Customers‘ requirements.

We are committed to ensuring our products and services meet required regulatory or statutory requirements.

Customer Satisfaction and Product Quality is each employee’s responsibility and we provide resources and the environment to achieve this objective.

We are committed to continuous improvement of our products, services, and business processes.

We are dedicated to the communication and fulfillment of the Quality Policy throughout the organization.

Further, we have adopted a series of six metrics, and continually track, measure and report on our performance against each—Customer Satisfaction, Schedule Performance, On-Time Delivery, Product Performance, Cost of Poor Quality (COPQ) and Corrective Action Performance.

We Are Serious
About Safety.

Maintaining a high level of safety is not just an outstanding indicator of a well-run operation, it is simply the right thing to do for any business. Throughout every Babcock business unit, we believe that we have an ethical stewardship responsibility for the well-being of every individual working at every location and at every job site, and it shows in the way we operate. For example, before even breaking ground on a site project, TEi Construction conducts a formal, detailed Job Hazard Analysis, and works to alleviate any potential threats—no matter how small—through controls, mitigation and training. It’s just one of the reasons that the group maintains an enviably low OSHA TIR score, and, as of late 2017, has logged more than 5.6 million man hours without a lost-time accident.

Engineering Expertise

Solutions Engineered
by Our Experts.

At BPI, our engineers are highly visible, well-respected leaders in the industries they serve, including coal, oil, gas, refuse, petroleum, coke, biomass and solar powered energy. They have an average of 20 years of hands-on experience in their disciplines, and they hold numerous positions on key industry and code committees including those within NFPA and ASME. We have found that this level of peer-to-peer participation helps ensure that our products and services meet today’s highest standards and help drive the innovative developments of tomorrow.

From computer-aided engineering and design to intelligent P&IDs and computational fluid dynamics, the diverse expertise of our engineers enables us to offer a full spectrum of value-added services. With a focus on continuous improvement, the team works toward reducing capital costs and operational and maintenance costs for our customers, while bolstering system performance and reliability.

We Are Committed to
Environmental Responsibility.

BPI has been providing environmental control systems to the power and process industries for nearly half a century, and has provided highly efficient energy-related equipment—and helped organizations maintain high performance operation through high quality aftermarket parts and services—for decades longer still. In addition to helping our customers excel in their environmental performance, as a company, BPI is, not surprisingly, extremely cognizant of our own environmental performance, and works to maintain the optimum level of sustainable performance in every operation. No wonder that, in addition to our outstanding Quality and Safety record, we also have had ZERO environmental and health incidents since 2009.
