MBE Corporate Plus Certification
Corporate Plus is a national designation for Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) and certified by the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC). This achievement is awarded to less than 100 minority suppliers in the United States.
In order to be nominated for this prestigious designation, an NMSDC national corporate member must support that LACOSTA has achieved the following:
- Have demonstrated the capacity to execute contracts for major corporations on a national level
- Have experience that counts with a proven track record
- Provide top quality services, products and solutions
Minority businesses are one of the fastest growing business segments. They contribute both to job growth and to the overall economic health of minority communities and the country as a whole. As a customer in today’s marketplace, Corporate Plus can become a powerful NMSDC resource for your company to identify minority suppliers with national capabilities. The Corporate Plus program is a direct result of increasing requests from national corporate members for NMSDC to assist them in locating more minority businesses with capacity for national contracts. Corporate Plus can also help your company increase national recognition of your company’s commitment to Minority Supplier Development.
Many corporations today report they are consolidating their supplier base in an effort to control total supplier quality management and costs, while at the same time, increasing partnerships with MBE’s that can provide innovative solutions for meeting company and business initiatives.
