Plibrico Co. LLC, a major supplier of monolithic refractory materials and services, understands the importance of investing in industry training and development of its employees.
“At Plibrico, we are committed to helping our employees grow personally and gain the necessary level of knowledge to productively perform his or her job,” said Brad Taylor, Plibrico president and CEO. “Over the years, we have found that providing the opportunity to develop through training is one of the most important factors in employee motivation, engagement and positive morale.”
Philip Wrisley, project manager at Plibrico’s Salem, Ohio, office, is the latest employee to take advantage of this training. Wrisley is the recipient of an API STD 936 Refractory Personnel Certification from the American Petroleum Institute. This certification verifies Wrisley’s knowledge of API Refractory Installation Quality Control Guidelines for field-testing of monolithic refractory materials, as well as best practices in the installation and repair of refractory linings.
Wrisley is now certified to provide customers with API-approved field-testing to assure superior refractory performance, while saving time and money on installations. In addition, his knowledge can help better align Plibrico installation teams with third-party inspection services to facilitate improved quality assurance practices overall.
“I greatly appreciate Plibrico’s support in helping me achieve this long-term career goal,” said Wrisley. “My API certification assures customers of a higher quality of work and increases their confidence and peace of mind that Plibrico is the right choice for refractory material, engineering, repair and installation services.”
