Pat Meadows, president of Nashville, TN-based Dixie Graphics Inc. (DG), has announced the company’s recent WBE certification by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) – effective as of March 11, 2014.
As a brand services partner with consumer packaged goods companies (CPG); packaging printer/converters; and architectural signage fabricators and designers, WBE certification places DG in a select group. According to the Center for Women’s Business Research (nwbc.gov) only 20% of women-owned businesses are categorized as providing professional, scientific, or technical services.
WBENC 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. WBENC is also the nation's leading advocate of women-owned businesses as suppliers to America's corporations.
“Dixie Graphics proudly promotes diversity in employment and purchasing, and in doing so, selecting the best,“ Meadows says. “With our WBE certification, we can assure customers of diversity in their own selection of vendors and promote partnering on the basis of best quality and service delivery.”
