Why work with a WMBE and DBE?

Through our certifications we can offer more adaptability, flexibility and balance in comparison to non-MBE suppliers. IES offers cost saving strategies due to diversity spend requirements and helps you take advantage of numerous federal and state tax incentives, tax breaks and potential rebates.

As a WBE, the federal government affords tax incentives to those who conduct business with minority and women-owned businesses. Contact us today, to find out more!

“Adding more diversity to a company’s supplier base may allow a business to better weather an economic downturn, deal with labor strikes or shortages, and bring new products to market more quickly because that diversity tends to mean the company is less reliant on a single source.” John Rick Klaras Manager, Small Business Solutions, Dun & Bradstreet
