Glendale, CA – June 20, 2013 – bTrade, the leading provider of compression and managed file transfer technology solutions, today announced that it has been recertified as a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) by the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC). NMSDC established stringent certification standards which identify bona fide minority businesses, and the regional Councils do the investigation to determine whether a business is worthy of MBE certification. bTrade worked with the Southern California Minority Supplier Development Council (SCMSDC).
SCMBDC performed a combination of screenings, interviews and site visits to establish bTrade’s eligibility. This feature distinguishes NMSDC from other organizations or entities that publish directories which allow “self-certification” as their standard.
MBE certification is accepted and generally required by many of the largest publicly, privately and foreign-owned companies, as well as universities, hospitals and other buying institutions. The nearly 200 corporate members of NMSDC represent a veritable “Who’s Who” in corporate America.
