Pacesetter Steel Service Earns Certification as Female-Owned, -Operated Business

Friday, March 20, 2015
 
Pacesetter Steel Service, Inc., Kennesaw, GA, has received national certification as a Women's Business Enterprise by the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), making it one of largest companies in the steel industry to receive this distinction, according to Pacesetter officials. The certification process confirms that the business is at least 51-percent owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women via an in-depth review of a business and its legal and financial documents, as well as an in-depth site inspection. Pacesetter began the certification process following the announcement of Aviva Leebow's accession as its new chief executive officer in September 2014.
Pacesetter's new status helps other companies achieve supplier and vendor diversity objectives by providing a WBENC-certified steel service center with whom they can partner.
“At Pacesetter, we have a shared vision of leading the industry in innovation and becoming a genuinely collaborative partner with our customers, our suppliers and our community,” says Leebow. “Our certification will allow us to add even more value to our current customers, helping them reach new markets and their supplier diversity initiatives.”
Pacesetter owns and operates service centers outside of Atlanta, Chicago and in Houston, and processes and supplies cold-rolled, galvanized, galvannealed, galvalume, aluminized and prepainted steel. Services include coil slitting, cut-to-length, precision blanking and CNC punching. For more, visit www.teampacesetter.com
