C.H. Reynolds Electric, Inc. Certified as a Women Business Enterprise
SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — C.H. Reynolds Electric, Inc. (www.chreynolds.com), announced they have been certified as a business owned and controlled by a woman by the National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC), the first national certifier of Women Business Enterprises. Over 700 public and private sector individuals participated in establishing the Standards and Procedures of this rigid certification review. The goal of the certification program is to streamline the certification process and increase the ability of women business owners to compete for contracts at a national level.
“Certification provides a marketing opportunity for women business enterprises to participate in outreach programs,” says Shelly Paiva, President. “In addition, this program will enable us to develop stronger relationships with our current customers and future partnerships with new ones.”
“NWBOC seeks to increase the ability of women business owners to compete for corporate and government contracts,” says Janet Harris-Lange, President of NWBOC. “At the same time, NWBOC also hopes to decrease the number of front operations participating in corporate and government outreach programs.”
NWBOC, a national 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation, was created in response to needs identified by the Procurement Special Interest Group of the National Association of Women Business Owners. The study revealed that the public and private sector had not received nor recognized the benefits of contracting with women suppliers. This has prevented purchasers from obtaining the best value in their procurement and it has limited women business owners from penetrating these markets, which has stymied their growth. NWBOC seeks to provide more corporations with the opportunity to better their procurement practices and give women suppliers the opportunity to compete.
