Memco Safety Receives Woman Business Enterprise (WBE) Certification

For Immediate Release:

Memco, Inc., MandM Poultry Equipment, Inc. Certified as Woman Business Enterprise by NWBOC

Hollister, MO, April 26, 2010 – Memco and MandM Poultry Equipment received notification from the National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC) that both companies have been certified as businesses owned and controlled by a woman or as a “woman business enterprise” (WBE).

The national certification by the NWBOC, accompanies both Memco’s and MandM’s previous certification by Taney County, Missouri’s Board of Commissioners in 2009 as a diversity company operated by a woman. Memco and MandM Poultry, led by Julie Middleton, president, understands the difficulties that small diversity companies face every day and is appreciative of the work that is done by NWBOC.

On Monday, Middleton said, “We are pleased by the decision of the NWBOC to officially recognize both Memco and MandM as woman-owned businesses. This recognition will be incorporated into our company development strategy, while setting us apart and adding credibility in the marketplace. It’s no replacement for the hard work that’s involved in sales and marketing, but it’s nice being recognized as what we are.”

The NWBOC or National Women Business Owners Corporation is the Nation’s first third-party WBE Certifier and provides a national certification program for women-owned businesses. The WBE Certification ensures that a private, for-profit company is truly owned and controlled by a woman or women. The NWBOC is a national 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation.
