Painters USA is excited to announce that we have officially been certified as a Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) and recertified as a Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) member by the Small Business Administration - a major accomplishment earned by all of our team.
So what does WOSB certification mean exactly? It validates that Painters USA is at least 51% owned and controlled by a woman - in our case, Chairman of the Board & President, Meg Cook. To get certified, we went through a rigorous process of documenting and verifying Cook’s ownership and leadership of the company. It also entitles us to compete for contracts set aside for women-owned businesses funded by 3% of federal contracting dollars.
As for WBENC, the certification validates that a business is at least 51% owned, controlled, operated, and managed by a woman or women. We’re thrilled to be recertified in our continued effort to champion equity.
WOSB certification is the gold standard for women-owned businesses. It opens up new opportunities for us to work with government agencies and expand our services into the public sector. We're honored to join the elite ranks of WOSB-certified companies.
This milestone marks the result of years of dedication, starting with Meg. She has worked tirelessly to provide top-notch painting services with a focus on ensuring customer satisfaction, all while upholding the company's commitment to excellence since its start in 1998.
Earning WOSB certification is a tremendous honor for our company. This certification is the gold standard for validating women-owned businesses like ours. It opens up new opportunities for us to grow our business and services.
Today, Painters USA employs some of the most skilled painters and craftspeople in the industry. Our team takes pride in the outstanding service we provide to all of our industrial and commercial clients.
We're thrilled to have earned this designation as a woman-owned and operated company. Thank you to our wonderful clients for supporting us along the way. Here's to even more success ahead!
