GENEVA, OH, January 23, 2006
TEGAM, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has been certified as a qualified HUBZone small business concern by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). The SBA’s HUBZone Empowerment Contracting Program seeks to create jobs and stimulate economic development in urban and rural communities that have been designated as Historically Underutilized Business Zones. Certification is awarded to small businesses that, among other qualifications, maintain a principal office in a HUBZone and employ staff that lives in one of these specially designated areas. TEGAM’s certification means that it is now eligible to receive HUBZone contracting opportunities under the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Code 334515, Instrument Manufacturing for Measuring and Testing Electricity and Electrical Signals. TEGAM can also receive contracts that it is qualified to perform under other NAICS Codes. Contractors are encouraged to contact TEGAM to discuss these opportunities. “This certification provides TEGAM access to preferred federal contracts and the opportunity to create additional jobs for the people of Ashtabula County,” comments Adam Fleder, president of TEGAM, Inc. “In addition, we can help some of our customers who are large federal contractors meet their HUBZone subcontracting goals.” http://dsbs.sba.gov/dsbs/search/dsp_profile.cfm?User_Id=P0127860 TEGAM, Inc., headquartered in Geneva, OH, has been quickly responding to customers’ evolving needs by providing targeted metrology, calibration, and production test instrumentation solutions since 1979.
