CARY, N.C., March 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) has selected A10 Clinical Solutions, Inc., a comprehensive clinical research and healthcare delivery organization, for its most prestigious status as a National Corporate Plus® member.
The primary objective of the NMSDC is to provide a direct link between corporate America and minority-owned businesses, and is one of the country's leading business membership organizations.
The Corporate Plus® status is a distinction awarded to certified NMSDC Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) that have a proven track record of successfully performing national contracts for their Corporate Plus® Sponsors, and can perform additional national contracts for other National Corporate Members of NMSDC. A10 was recommended for Corporate Plus® Member status by client Merck & Co., Inc., with which A10 has a multi-year, successful working relationship on major therapeutic areas for clinical trials and research.
"In six years, A10 Clinical Solutions has distinguished itself as a leading innovator in clinical trials research and clinical care," said NMSDC President Joset B. Wright. "Today, the world's leading pharmaceutical companies, as well as government agencies and other organizations depend on A10 for faster service delivery and products to help them lower their healthcare costs. NMSDC is proud to designate A10 as a new member of its Corporate Plus ® program for outstanding MBEs with national contract capabilities."
With three million minority-owned businesses in the U.S. employing more than four million U.S. workers, it is important for corporations to work together to keep the economy synergistically growing. With Health being one of the nation's most prosperous industries, A10 is poised to continue to drive significant economic contributions with both partner corporations and with life sciences employees.
"Having received the designation of Corporate Plus® confirms that A10's clients recognize our ability and expansive capacity to provide top-notch, leading-edge clinical services to meet their dynamic healthcare needs on a national and international basis," says Leah Brown, President and CEO of A10. "We hope we can serve as a promising example to other MBEs. Doing good things for our communities, such as improving healthcare, works well in parallel with growing a profitable business enterprise."
