Nobis Engineering, Inc. (Nobis) has been selected as the:
• 2014 National Small Business Administration 8(a) Graduate Firm of the Year
• 2014 Massachusetts Small Business Administration 8(a) Graduate Firm of the Year
The Small Business Administration has selected Nobis Engineering as their Massachusetts and National 2014 8(a) Graduate Firm of the Year, recognizing Nobis for their business growth, success in the Federal marketplace, and commitment to their customers and community since their April 2004 graduation from the SBA 8(a) program.
Nobis’ Senior Vice President Peter Delano comments,
These two SBA awards are a testament to SBA’s critical assistance as well as Nobis’ commitment to and success in competing and winning as a small business Federal contractor since our SBA 8(a) graduation.
SBA’s 8(a) Business Development program is a nine-year assistance program which “provides socially and economically disadvantaged firms access to government contracting opportunities and specialized business training and counseling to help them become viable competitors in the Federal marketplace.” SBA makes the 8(a) Graduate Firm of the Year Award to a formerly certified 8(a) Business Development Program participant that has been a graduate from the 8(a) program for at least one year.
Since graduating from the SBA 8(a) program over ten years ago, Nobis’ revenues have more than doubled, the firm has grown significantly to 100+ employees and six offices.
Both awards were presented by the SBA to Nobis CEO Abhijit “Nannu” Nobis during National Small Business Week held May 12-16, 2014.
