Grand Rapids, Michigan (PRWEB) May 20, 2012
East Muskegon Roofing and Sheet Metal Co., Inc. , a business specializing in commercial and industrial roofing, sheet metal and HVAC contracting, received national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Enterprise Council-Great Lakes, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
WBENC’s national standard of certification implemented by the Women’s Business Enterprise Council-Great Lakes is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women.
By including women-owned businesses among their vendors, corporations, and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier/vendor diversity programs.
In a move to recognize many of its customers’ values and open up more marketing opportunities to work with new customers that are supportive of woman-owned and minority-owned businesses, East Muskegon Roofing and Sheet Metal decided to transfer majority ownership to Eileen Kanaar. Eileen has worked side by side with her husband, Greg, for almost thirty years and knows what it takes to adapt to a changing business climate. East Muskegon provides commercial and industrial roofing, sheet metal and HVAC services while striving everyday to provide the highest level of excellence in workmanship, customer service and safety and continues to uphold long-time corporate values of honesty, integrity and respect.
