Dominion Service Company is proud to share news that we were recently re-certified as a SWaM business! Our certification in the program extends until February 2019. You can find us in the SWaM business directory under Dominion Service Company of Richmond, SWaM Certification #689796.
What is SWaM?
SWaM stands for Small, Women-Owned and Minority-Owned. A SWaM business is business certified by the Virginia Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity. To qualify, the business must operate in Virginia and meet the following summarized criteria according to the Virginia Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity:
Small business—must have 250 or fewer employees, or average annual gross receipts of $10 million or less averaged over the previous three years.
Women-owned business—51% of the business is owned and managed with daily operations controlled by one or more women.
Minority-owned business—51% or more of the business must be independently owned by minority individuals who are U.S. citizens or legal resident aliens.
Why being SWaM certified is important to us…
Dominion Service Company started off in 1979 as a small local, family-owned business. Fast forward almost 40 years and we still operate under those same core values and standards that brought our business to Richmond in the first place. As a SWaM business, we give back to our local economy—by paying taxes, creating jobs, and directly, or indirectly through larger businesses, supporting the needs of the Commonwealth. Our team is honored to be a SWaM certified business in Virginia because it gives us access to support and project opportunities that not only helps grow our business, but also other small, local businesses. We can then pass this knowledge and expertise on to our customers.
DSCR welcomes the opportunity to work with other SWaM businesses throughout Virginia. To find out about our experience and services, contact Dominion Service Company today 800-832-0758.
