DETROIT, Dec. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Veteran Business Development Council (NVBDC) is proud to announce that we continue to add Corporations to our list of partnering companies. Since the launch of our online certification program more Service Disabled and Veteran Owned Businesses (SDVOB/VOBs) have become certified and that benefits both our veterans and our supporting corporations.
Keith King, NVBDC President said; "We set out to build the "Gold Standard" certification program for our fellow Service Disabled and Veteran Owned Businesses (SDVOB/VOBs) and as the new corporations join our existing corporate supporters, (AT&T, GM, FORD, Kellogg, 3M, DMS, Consumers Energy, Veteran Support Foundation, etc. ) I think it is safe to say that we are well on our way to being accepted as that. We encourage our Veterans to start their certification at www.nvbdc.org."
We are proud that our newest supporter; Magna International, a leading global automotive supplier has named the NVBDC certification as the non-governmental third party certification program for their Service Disabled and Veteran Owned Business suppliers.
Brigadier General (ret) Dick Miller, NVBDC Vice President, said, "As a former deputy commanding general of an Infantry division with troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, I've seen the best that America has to offer and I salute Magna International for recognizing the skills and knowledge that our Veterans have and are willing to add them to their supplier network. These veterans have been working on and, in some cases, helped build some of the most sophisticated equipment in the world."
The NVBDC is thankful to have the support of such leading Corporations and is looking forward to announcing our newest supporters. The NVBDC has created a nationally recognized certification program and is committed to growing certified SDVOB/VOBs in the area of supplier diversity. The immediate return on investment for our corporations and our Veterans is that we provide corporations with certified Service Disabled/Veteran Owned Businesses to help them achieve their spend goals.
We thank the corporations and all of the veterans who have served our country.
