Weaver Fab & Finishing (Weaver), serving the precision metal fabrication needs of the aerospace, medical, food equipment, heating and cooling, packaging equipment and robotics industries for more than 70 years, today announced it received national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE). Given by the Ohio River Valley Women’s Business Council, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), Weaver joins an elite group of qualified WBE manufacturing companies and one of 930 WBE organizations in the council’s region of Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia.

By including women-owned businesses among their vendors, organizations demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier/vendor diversity programs. “This certification fulfills a key need for many of our customers,” said Marian Lauer, co-owner, Weaver Fab & Finishing.

Weaver customer Kim Daugherty, supply chain manager for Energy Technologies Inc., a provider of reliable power back and generation equipment, recognizes the immediate benefit of this certification, specifically as it pertains to the company’s government contracts. “Weaver's WBE business status expands our federal contracting opportunities, which will allow us to obtain additional business by meeting vendor requirements for Department of Defense contracts,” Daugherty said.
