IRWINDALE, Calif., Sept. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA), a division of the US Department of Commerce, has awarded its 2011 National Minority Manufacturer of the Year Award to Superior Communications. The award is presented to minority-owned entrepreneurs and businesses to highlight their outstanding achievements, which, in part, are based on revenue, job creation and economic impact.
As a two-part competition, the National Minority Manufacturer of the Year Award is open only to businesses that have won their respective region. And in early September, Superior, celebrating 20 years in the wireless industry, won the MBDA Minority Manufacturer of the Year Award for the Western Region, making the company a finalist for the national title.
MBDA National Director David Hinson, stated on the MBDA website, "The minority-owned firms selected are excellent examples of US firms producing American-made products and services that are creating jobs for Americans. These businesses are helping America 'win the future' by boosting our economy and global competitiveness."
Superior Chief Executive Officer and Chairman, Solomon Chen, stated, "Winning the MBDA National Minority Manufacturer of the Year Award is truly one of Superior's greatest honors. As a company, we take pride not only in our success as a leading manufacturer in the wireless industry, but in the diversity of our employees who have worked hard to get us here."
Each year, the MBDA honors successful minority-owned businesses from five business categories: construction, manufacturing, energy, technology, and supplier/distributor.
