Partnerships with local, diverse business enterprises can help to bolster the economic vitality of our region and create opportunities for all those who call Southwestern Pennsylvania home.
As we reported in our 2022 Supplier Diversity Program Annual Report, last year we contracted with nearly 70 minority, women, veteran, LGBT, disabled-owned, and small businesses, collectively referred to as MWDBEs, creating tens of millions of dollars in economic value in Allegheny County.
These businesses are critically important partners, supporting us in our delivery of safe, reliable water services to our communities, all while upholding our mission, vision, and core values. To highlight some of the outstanding diverse businesses we work alongside, our Supplier Diversity and Development Services teams are excited to announce new PGH2O RAVE (Recognition and Appreciation of Vendor Excellence) Profiles.
First up in this series: The Wilson Group.
Since 2013, this Pittsburgh-based minority business enterprise has supported PWSA’s copying, printing, and scanning needs. Notably, they also helped spearhead a printer rationalization study, implementing more efficient multi-function printers to replace older desktop models.
Boasting more than thirty years of experience designing and implementing workflow solutions, the organization has employees more than 50 individuals for their more than 2,000 customers, including Pittsburgh Parking Authority, Peters Township School District, and Pittsburgh Public Schools.
Our long-term partnership with the Wilson Group is made possible by their willingness to go above and beyond to help our teams. Due to their exceptional service and robust qualifications, PWSA recently extended our contract term for an additional five years.
Thank you to The Wilson Group for their vendor excellence!
