PFS Corporation and T.R. Arnold & Associates Announce Strategic Partnership

The General Manager of the PFS Corporation Manufactured Structures Division, Bob Gorleski, is pleased to announce a strategic partnership between PFS and TRA, two well-established and highly-regarded third-party agencies in the manufactured and modular building industry, to offer PFS clients Canadian certification services.

This new affiliation enhances the missions of both PFS and TRA in providing plan review, quality manual reviews, and material certification reviews on the Canadian standards and codes for Factory Built Structures (CSA A277), Manufactured Homes (CSA Z240), and Park Trailers (CSA Z241).

“The training provided by Steenhof Building Services Group (SBSG) for both agencies' plans examiners and inspectors on Canadian standards and codes finalizes the partnership as a collaboration that capitalizes on the strengths of both agencies. Our clients have the opportunity to connect with TRA for Canadian code compliance services and with PFS for Canadian in-plant inspection services,” stated Bob Gorleski.

Jim Husom, PFS Corporation President and CEO, stated “The partnership is an alliance between both agencies, not a merger.  It is an opportunity to enhance the range of services to PFS clients where a service gap previously existed for our clients producing manufactured and modular buildings for the Canadian market.”

“PFS and TRA have been working together over the years to provide inspection services to clients, and we have forged a good relationship. With TRA as an accredited Certification Body for Canada of manufactured and modular buildings, this is an opportunity to partner with PFS to provide certification services,” stated Robert Tanger, TRA President.
