WOM is proud to announce its selection as the 2016 Manufacturer of the Year by the Greater Houston Business Procurement Forum. The Greater Houston Business Procurement Forum, established in 1991 and now celebrating its 25th anniversary, presented the award to WOM representatives at a ceremony held on December 13th at Houston Community College. The ceremony, whose theme was “Recognizing the Challenges and Seizing the Opportunities”, is meant to recognize and promote outstanding achievements of minority and small businesses based on the challenges those businesses have overcome, total revenues, jobs created and economic impact they have brought to the community.
The mission of the Greater Houston Business Procurement Forum (GHBPF) is to be a world class organization dedicated to providing advocates an opportunity to promote and enhance the success of “Economically and Socially Disadvantaged Businesses”. The GHBPF holds monthly events which bring together minority and small businesses with corporate and public sector executives and decision makers who have goals to meet or a desire to “Make a Positive Difference” in the community and are seeking capable minority and small businesses to fulfill those initiatives. The GHBPF ultimately seeks to create mutually beneficial linkages between the two groups, providing the management and technical assistance through its partners and associates which minority businesses need to perform and grow while apprising public and private sector officials of the capacity of the minority and small business community and their potential to enhance the communities in which they operate.
