Certification provides a marketing opportunity for women-owned business enterprises to participate in outreach programs.
(PRWEB) September 12, 2014
Cope Plastics, Inc. is pleased to announce its re-certification as a Woman-Owned Business by the National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC). Cope Plastics, Inc. has been woman-owned since 2004, and first became certified in August of 2012.
“Certification provides a marketing opportunity for women-owned business enterprises to participate in outreach programs,” says Jane Saale, President and CEO of Cope. “In addition, this program will enable us to continue to develop relationships with larger companies and create opportunities for future partnerships with them as well as smaller, private companies.”
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. The study revealed that the public and private sector had not received nor recognized the benefits of contracting the women suppliers. This has prevented purchasers from obtaining the best value in their procurement and it has limited women business owners from penetrating these markets, which has stymied their growth. NWBOC seeks to provide more corporations with the opportunity to better their procurement practices and to women suppliers the opportunity to compete.
Cope Plastics, Inc. is a leading distributor and fabricator of plastic sheet, rod and tube across the country; and, while they already have national contracts and significant relationships with many large companies, they are proud to become certified by the NWBOC.
