Power Tool and Supply announces they are Certified as a Woman Business Enterprise.
Power Tool and Supply Co. an industrial tool and supply distribution center and retail store located in Youngstown, Ohio, has 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 increase the ability of Power Tool and Supply to compete for contracts at a national level.
“Certification provides a marketing opportunity for women business enterprises to participate in outreach programs,” said Lisa Springer, owner. “In addition, this program will enable us to develop relationships with larger companies and create opportunities for future partnerships with them.
“NWBOC seeks to increase the ability of women business owners to compete for corporate and government contracts,” stated 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. For more information, visit www.nwboc.com
