For immediate release:
K&E Plastics, a leader in machined plastic parts, is pleased to announce that it has been certified by the US Small Business Administration as a HUBZONE business. The Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZONE) is a SBA program to encourage business investment in underserved communities.
The HUBZONE program helps small businesses in urban and rural communities gain preferential access to federal procurement opportunities by mandating that 3% of all Federal Prime Contracting dollars awarded are to be set aside for HUBZONE certified firms.
“I would like to thank the K&E staff and the Vermont Procurement Technical Assistance Center for going through the HUBZONE application process”, said Eric Broderson, President of K&E Plastics. “We are hopeful the HUBZONE certification will be beneficial for K&E Plastics as we will be able to bring our expertise in machining of plastic parts to government customers in a more direct and strategic way”
“We have positioned the company for growth over the last several years with the addition of new machinery while supporting a grassroots workforce development initiative at the local level”, continued Broderson. “The economy seems to be doing well so the HUBZONE certification comes at a perfect time”.
