VRG Certified as a Woman-owned Business

VRG Components®, an AS9120B/ISO 9001:2015 certified independent global distributor of electronic components, is proud to announce national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Greater Women’s Business Council, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). WBENC Certification is the gold standard for women-owned business certification in the United States.

“Our woman-owned certification reflects our uniqueness within our industry and benefits our customers with supplier diversity goals,” said CEO Verena Martin. “As CEO, I am proud to report that 63% of our management team are women and 54% of all employees are women.  They make important contributions to the success of our company every day.”

The WBENC standard of certification implemented by the Greater Women’s Business Council is a meticulous process, including an in-depth review of the business and a site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by a woman or women, and that the business has the appropriate structure and strategic business planning and implementation in place.

By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs, which in turn empowers women as leaders and brings about a more diverse, balanced, and sustainable economy.

WBENC Certification combined with professional development and engagement in the WBENC network provides unsurpassed opportunities year-round, both virtually and in-person, for women-owned businesses to grow and expand their business and innovation through events, programming, and connections with major corporations and other WBEs.
