Quality at Maxx Canada

Maxx operates, within North America, with the express permission of the Governing Regulatory Bodies, under the condition that written Engineering/Quality/ and Construction Practices are being followed which provide conformance to the Customers’ Engineering Design and Construction Specifications as well as strict compliance to the applicable Codes and Regulatory Requirements. To meet the requirements set by the Regulatory Bodies, Maxx has created a Quality Management System Manual that is used by all Divisions.

The Quality Management System Manual is used in conjunction with Maxx North America Services Ltd. Quality Control Manual for Construction of Pressure Piping. Pressure Piping is covered under a separate Certification by ABSA, in the Province of Alberta, for the following activities in accordance with the Alberta Safety Codes Act and Referenced Standards: Field Construction, Repair and Alteration of Pressure Piping to ASME B31.3 under the Certificate of Authorization Permit (Reg. No.: AQP-22010)
The Company is also certified to CSA Standard W47.1 “Certification of Companies for Fusion Welding of Steel” in Division 2 (Canadian Welding Bureau – CWB Company Code: MAXNA1). This separate certification qualifies the Company to weld structural steel anywhere in Canada (Federal Certification).

The Company requires “a pride in workmanship” and as such, Quality objectives are set at ZERO Rework. It is expected that all Company and Subcontractor workers take every reasonable precaution to eliminate unnecessary rework. No job is so urgent it cannot be done “right the first time” to ensure efficient construction execution with schedule and costs adherence.

Poor Quality and workmanship are not acceptable on Company worksites and must be corrected. The Company is committed to working together with all Customers and Subcontractors to ensure that a “pride in quality” attitude exists among all workers on-site.

The Quality Management System Manual is supported with quality procedures, processes, and forms that have been developed by Maxx North America Services Ltd. Quality department, for use by the Corporate Executives, Project Team(s), Business Service Unit(s) and the Company’s Project Quality Personnel (IE: Coordinator and QC Inspectors). Individual Project Quality Plans and Inspection and Test Plans (ITPs) will be completed and submitted to the Customer for mark-up, prior to mobilization, based on each project contractual activities therein.
