Specialty Technical Consultants Gains Second WBE Certification

Specialty Technical Consultants, Inc. (STC) today announced that it has received certification as a Women-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE) from the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), certificate number 2005115942. WBENC, founded in 1997, is the largest U.S. third-party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women. STC obtained this certification to meet the needs of clients who rely on a national certification. WBENC certification is accepted by more than 700 national corporations, as well as numerous state and local government agencies.

"We continue to gain momentum as a result of the role that women play in leading our company," said Barb Ruble, President of STC. "Customers supporting workplace diversity efforts or needing to meet legal requirements for set-asides can be confident they are working with a company that provides the highest possible level of service and expertise."

By functioning as a certified Women-Owned Business Enterprise, Specialty Technical Consultants is responding to the need that many enterprises have for EHS auditing and compliance services while addressing the shortage of highly qualified minority EHS contractors.

STC previously received WBE certification through the Supplier Clearinghouse for the California Public Utilities Commission (Certificate #10AS0062). STC is also certified by the State of California/Port of Oakland as a Small Business Enterprise (SBE) and by a group of seven agencies in southern California, including the Metropolitan Water District, Port of Long Beach, City of San Diego, Los Angeles Unified School District, and the Minority Business Development Agency.
