Wendel has achieved re-accreditation through the National Association of Energy Services Companies (NAESCO) as an Energy Service Company (ESCO). Wendel is one of only 19 companies in North America to receive this accreditation. For more than 20 years, Wendel has been providing innovative ideas in energy efficiency to clients looking to reduce current energy and operating costs. Our Energy Services team uses their engineering and construction expertise to develop and deliver turnkey solutions that are both environmentally friendly and economically responsible.
NAESCO accreditation ensures that Wendel is providing the very best possible services to clients and is a company that develops and implements turnkey, comprehensive energy efficiency projects. The accreditation process is a rigorous examination of our technical competencies, project performance and business practices. Those elements are carefully reviewed by a committee totally independent of NAESCO and comprised of industry experts unaffiliated with NAESCO member companies. The standards driving accreditation are set on maintaining the highest quality standards that can be expected by the customer in providing products, services and energy cost savings.
“I am proud of the fact that we have held this prestigious accreditation for the past 10 years and will continue to hold it for 3 years until the next renewal. This is a testament to the consistent, high level of quality and service we provide our clients,” said Joseph A. DeFazio, PE, Vice President.
