Somerset, PA (February, 2018) Augustine Die & Mold, Inc., a Somerset, PA based company offering precision machining, specializing in aerospace and defense applications along with design, manufacturing, and repair services for tooling in the plastics industry, announced today that it has been certified by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to participate in the Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) program.
The HUBZone program helps small businesses in urban and rural communities gain preferential access to federal procurement opportunities. These preferences go to small businesses that obtain HUBZone certification in part by employing staff who live in a HUBZone. The Federal Government has an annual goal of awarding 3% of all federal prime contracts to HUBZone-certified business concerns.
“This certification allows us to bring our expertise in precision machining services to government customers in a more direct and strategic way. We’re confident that becoming HUBZone certified will open greater opportunities not only for our company but for our customers, partners, and employees in Somerset County,” noted James Brown, the company’s President & CEO. “This award would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work of our administrative team and the support of the JARI Procurement Technical Assistance Center.”
Chairman and Founder, Tony Augustine, remarked, “We are pleased to receive this noteworthy certification. As a Somerset based manufacturing company pursuing government contracts, this certification will allow us to help government procurement officers achieve their set-aside goals.”
