B & K certified Women’s Business Enterprise

MARENGO – B & K Power Equipment Inc., a business specializing in construction equipment sales and service, received national recertification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Development Council of Chicago, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council.

WBENC’s national standard of certification implemented by the Women’s Business Development Council of Chicago 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 percent owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women.

According to the WBDC, 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.

In addition to being re-certified, B & K Power Equipment also was chosen as the Women Business Enterprise Business of the Month recently. Barbara Christ, president of B & K, was featured in the Insider Newsletter published by the WBDC. 

The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council is the nation’s largest third party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women in the United States. WBENC is a resource for the more than 700 U.S. companies and government agencies that rely on WBENC’s certification as an integral part of their supplier diversity programs.

B & K Power Equipment, 17009 Harmony Road, Marengo, specializes in the sales and service of construction, lawn and garden and agriculture equipment.
