K&S Industries is one of the most valuable DBE/SBE/WBE certified construction support companies in the West. We take pride in holding these certifications, but the benefits for our customers are immense. From a company policy standpoint, large and small corporations are always seeking DBE/SBE/WBE-owned businesses to meet supplier diversity goals. This is HUGE! If you have a construction project, K&S Industries can be a part of that undertaking as an approved DBE/SBE/WBE business.

Meeting a business diversity spend will not only help your business but will allow you to expand into government project opportunities as well. Many don’t know this, but by meeting compliance requirements by using a DBE/SBE/WBE certified supplier, companies can expand their revenue by acquiring larger purchase opportunities that mandate a specific amount of spend through a DBE/SBE/WBE.
