Diamond Packaging Certified as a Women-Owned Business

May 06, 2008 - News Archive

Rochester, NY – Diamond Packaging, a leading provider of packaging and contract packaging services, received national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women Presidents' Education Organization (WPEO), a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). WBENC is a resource for the more than 700 U.S. companies and government agencies that rely on the WBENC certification as an integral part of their supplier diversity programs.

“Certification is important for expanding our company’s visibility among decision makers in corporate supplier diversity and procurement,” said Karla Fichter, chief executive officer of Diamond Packaging. “Our status will enable us to cultivate relationships with larger companies that place an emphasis on working with women-owned businesses.”

WBENC’s national standard of certification implemented by the Women Presidents' Education Organization is based on 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 vendors, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier/vendor diversity programs.
