Ice Industries to Highlight SDVOSB Benefits at National Veterans Small Business Engagement
SYLVANIA, Ohio – November 25, 2014 – Companies and government agencies desiring to explore the advantages derived from working directly with a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB) are invited to join Ice Industries at the National Veterans Small Business Engagement from December 9th through 11th, 2014.
Ice Industries, founded in 1999, has grown to five locations spanning North America’s central business corridor. Specializing in deep draw metal stamping, welding, and assembly; the company serves a number of diverse markets, including the defense and government arenas.
The company is led by its founder, CEO and proud Army veteran, Howard Ice. States Mr. Ice: "The Verified SDVOSB status provides important minority content for our customers – commercial and governmental – on military, government or OE contracts. While pursuing projects, these customers prefer working directly with the actual manufacturer, rather than an intermediary company."
"Manufacturers seeking SDVOSB suppliers can gain a key competitive advantage using Ice Industries as their metal forming, welding and assembly partner," added Paul Bishop, Ice Industries’ President and COO. "With the focus on SDVOSB content intensifying, our customers need more than just service companies. They need qualified, diverse and capable manufacturing companies to work with to increase their SDVOSB spend and to bolster their competitiveness."
Be certain to stop by the Ice Industries display at the National Veterans Small Business Engagement Booth 1033, to discover the advantages a strong partner like Ice Industries can offer to your company or agency. If you are unable to attend the event, Dennis Bryant – Ice Industries’ Director of Sales and Marketing – will be happy to arrange a private meeting covering those areas most important to you.
