“For us, this award is a reminder that hard work and doing what is right for the customer, for our employees and for the country can generate enough success to also allow us to do good things in the community,” - Vince Marucci
Ellicott City, MD (PRWEB) June 07, 2011
Trusant Technologies, LLC, a service-disabled, veteran-owned company that implements enterprise systems, and creates and supports mission-critical data facilities for federal agencies, has won the Maryland Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year Award for companies with 11-50 employees.
“It is very humbling,” said Vincent Marucci, Jr., a principal and co-founder of Trusant. “It is humbling to know how many great companies are out there and still be recognized.”
Marucci and long-time friend and fellow Army Officer Joseph F. DiGangi founded the Ellicott City-based company in 2002. Trusant’s two business lines – information technology and construction management – have enabled the company to develop unique, holistic expertise in all aspects – technical and physical – of designing, building and supporting state-of-the-art, high-security data centers and software systems. Trusant has worked to ensure its customers’ data centers and mission-critical facilities employ the latest in construction and information technology best practices. Trusant has also developed a web portal that enables deployed soldiers and locally based analysts to create and track information requests more efficiently, aiding the timely flow of critical information.
Although Trusant is a small, young company competing in the complex realm of military and intelligence contracting, Trusant has successfully landed contracts with the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the National Institutes of Health, and several other federal agencies.
Trusant Technologies has posted strong revenue growth and staff expansion every year since its inception. In the last five years, Trusant’s revenues have grown 323 percent while the staff has expanded 258 percent. In 2010 alone, total revenue jumped 90 percent as Trusant landed the largest contract in its history — an $8-million contract to create a secure data center for the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
“For us, this award is a reminder that hard work and doing what is right for the customer, for our employees and for the country can generate enough success to also allow us to do good things in the community,” Marucci said.
Since its inception in 2002, Trusant Technologies has prided itself on supporting the veteran community. It actively recruits staff through Hired Heroes USA, the Service Academy Career Conference and other veteran- focused organizations. Trusant staff members regularly participate in Transition Assistance Program events, providing veterans with insights on private sector opportunities, interviewing techniques and resume writing.
Trusant works diligently to help other veteran- and service-disabled-veteran companies bid successfully on government contracts. The company has also raised $120,000 for the Fisher House Foundation, which provides a home to families of patients receiving medical care at major military and Veterans Administration medical centers.
