With the award of this certification Leading Marks anticipates a stronger partnership with the construction industry; specifically with electrical and mechanical sub-contractors.

Through the interactions with customers, we will strive to be an inspiration to other women considering career opportunities in the construction and manufacturing industries.

WBENC’s national standard of certification implemented by the Women’s WBEC-East 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% 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.
