paxxus-logoPaxxus recently received national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Development Center.

The Women’s Business Development Center (WBDC) is a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). Its standard of certification implemented by the WBDC is a process that includes an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The process is designed to confirm that the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by women.

“We are thrilled to be recognized by WBENC as a women-owned business,” Paxxus CEO Dhuanne Dodrill said in a news release. “We are proud to expand the representation of women in the manufacturing industry and delighted to be able to provide our customers with a more diverse supply chain.”

WBENC said that including women-owned businesses in suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrates a commitment to diversity and continued development of supplier diversity programs.
