Distributor and Procurement Service Provider Adds Premier (WBENC) Women Owned Certification
LAKE ELSINORE, California May 23, 2016–Inland Empire Components, Inc., an established local and global distributor of electronic components and procurement services, has received the nationally recognized Women Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) certification.
Thousands of major U.S. corporations and federal, state and local government entities recognize the WBENC certification. “With the many conferences, networking and match maker events offered by WBENC, it made sense to become a member. WBENC offers a safe environment for corporate procurement executives to vet new suppliers. WBENC certification doesn’t guarantee business or contracts. The certification is a foot in the door. Once you are inside, you still need to provide premium solutions, products and services,” said Inland Empire Components, Inc. President & CEO, Dana Jiron. “Our focus on making it easy for customers to do business with us includes the proper certifications. Many of our customers are performing on government contracts and we help them meet their diversity goals through the various certifications.”
The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), founded in 1997, is the largest third-party certifier of businesses owned, controlled, and operated by women in the United States. WBENC, a national 501(c)(3) non-profit, partners with 14 Regional Partner Organizations to provide its world class standard of certification to women-owned businesses throughout the country.
