The Mechanical Contractors Association of Houston was founded on the principles
of honesty and fairness. Our code of ethics reflects these principles, and our
members are committed to upholding these standards in all of their business
Honesty — We believe that honesty should be the
basic foundation for all business. Honesty results in customer confidence, and
offers mutual benefits for all parties. We believe that the representation of
the goods and services offered should be done truthfully and honestly.
A Fair Profit — We believe that a fair profit is a
just reward to those who provided a service.
Consideration — We believe in equal consideration
is due in business alike to capital, management, employees, and the public.
The Quest of Knowledge — We believe that a
continuous quest for knowledge of new devices, equipment, and procedures are
essential to individual success and service to the public.
Continuity of Service — We believe that permanence
of service is the basics of business, and that with permanence, the experience
and knowledge gained may better increase efficiency.
Bettering Employment Conditions — We believe that
by bettering the conditions of employment, efficiency increases and better
opportunities are created for employees. We firmly believe that this is an
obligation that the business has to itself as well as the public.
Fair Competition — We believe that unfair
competition results in a general downgrading of everyone involved in the
industry. Unfair competition results in more inequities and an eventual
disregard for normal business standards.
Inspiring Public Confidence — We believe that
business should be conducted as to deserve and inspire public confidence thereby
rendering restrictive legislation unnecessary.
