Southern Plus Earns WBE Certification
Southern Plus (PPAI 110918, S4), a supplier based in Hartwell, Georgia, has completed the necessary steps to be officially certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
WBENC’s national standard of certification is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51-percent owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women. By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs.
In a statement, the company notes, “Many of our customers work with clients that have programs and opportunities earmarked for WBE partnerships and we’re excited to be able to offer additional support to these customers with the WBE certification.”
