Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) December 17, 2004
In recognition of the economic power of multicultural businesses, DiversityBusiness.com, the nationsÂ leading multicultural B2B online portal, recently named Pure Air Control Services a SBA federal 8(a) certified minority business enterprise (MBE) as one of the top 100 diversity-owned businesses in Florida.
The Div100 is the 5th annual listing of the StateÂs top 100 diversity-owned businesses. Ranging in revenue size from $1.7 million to over $150 million, the companies listed on the Div100 represent the StateÂs top multicultural earners and challenge the long-held notion that a diversity-owned business is small or insignificant.
The Power of Diversity Business:
It is no longer just Âthe right thingÂ to do business with diversity suppliers. Affected by recent economic and demographic trends and changes, corporations throughout the country are realizing that diversity in suppliers positively impacts their business. Diversity-owned businesses contribute over $1.4 trillion in sales to the U.S. economy.
ÂDiversity businesses are a growing force in the U.S. economy, and a force to be reckoned with,Â said Kenton Clarke, CEO of Computer Consulting Associates International, the company that built DiversityBusiness.com. ÂItÂs no longer only about the Fortune 1000, or the Fortune 1000. This is a whole business segment that can carry its own, that provides jobs and valuable products and services, and generates wealth for their communities. These are the new leaders of American business.Â
ÂWe are proud of our firmÂs efforts as a minority owned business to be among this elite group of companies. Pure Air Control Services is the largest indoor environmental consulting company in Florida with a in-house AIHA accredited environmental microbiology laboratoryÂ, stated Alan Wozniak, President and CEO of Pure Air Control Services.
The Div100 is a classification that represents the top 100 diversity-owned (women, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Native Indian and other minority groups) businesses in the U.S., in sectors such as technology, manufacturing, food service and professional services. Large organizational buyers throughout the country that do business with multicultural and women-owned businesses use the list. The Div100 is produced annually by DiversityBusiness.com (formerly Div2000.com), the nation's leading multicultural B2B Internet portal that links large organizational buyers to multicultural product and service suppliers.
The winning companies will be honored at a special awards ceremony at DiversityBusiness.comÂs 5th Annual Multicultural Business Conference, taking place March 30,31 & April 1, 2005 at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut.
ÂThe Div100 companies are the heroes of diversity-owned business in America,Â said Kenton Clarke. ÂWhile Fortune magazine lists the best companies for minorities to work for, we list the top businesses owned by minorities. These are the people that have conquered the hurdles and made the sacrifices, building and strengthening their communities, providing jobs and helping to keep the fabric of the U.S. economy together.Â
