Alcatex, Inc a Texas based Data Center Design & Build company earns major national certification that can help the business continue to grow.
Alcatex, a business specializing in Data Center design and implementation, has received national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Council Southwest, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
Receiving the WBENC national standard of certification is no easy task. Implemented by the Women’s Business Council Southwest, the screening process is meticulous and in depth. The process includes both an in-depth review of the business as well as an onsite inspection. WBENC is checking to confirm that the business is owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women at a minimum level of 51%. Once certification is obtained it is maintained by the business for a period of one year. When the certification expires, the business must reapply and undergo the same stringent screening process again in order to be granted re-certification status.
Gaining national certification comes with several benefits for Alcatex. As a certified WBENC member, Alcatex is now able to retain additional business promotion, advocacy on business issues specific to women’s businesses, national recognition, access to lists of diversity and procurement executives across the United States and the opportunity for further career development. Development opportunities include webinars, scholarships and the opportunity to attend the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth University.
