Reading time ( words)

Spirit Electronics, a Veteran-Owned, Woman-Owned Small Business (VOWOSB, SDB) that provides electronic component distribution and value-added services to the Aerospace and Defense industry is pleased to announce its certification as a HUBZone business by the United States Small Business Administration (SBA).

Spirit Electronics is now eligible for HUBZone opportunities and is included on the list of certified HUBZone small business concerns. As a HUBZone-certified business, Spirit Electronics and its customers are able to further support economic growth and opportunity in Historically Underutilized Business Zones (HUBZones).

To achieve HUBZone Certification, Spirit had to meet criteria that included its principal office being located in a Federally-mapped HUBZone area and 35% or more of its employees residing within HUBZone regions. Spirit also had to submit to a comprehensive application process that confirmed these and other stringent requirements as set forth by the program. As a certified HUBZone small business, Spirit may receive program benefits, including eligibility for HUBZone set-aside awards, HUBZone sole source awards, the HUBZone Price Evaluation Preference in full and open competition, and HUBZone reserves.

“Through the HUBZone program, we are able to hire and train well qualified candidates, many of them in our own city of Phoenix,” says Marti McCurdy, Spirit Electronics’ owner and CEO. “Through our certification, our customers also support HUBZone residents and development, which is especially meaningful to our Aerospace and Defense industry.”

“We continue to expand our capabilities and offerings, and invest in the community around us. I am proud of our company’s impact on our community and look forward to growing our business in a meaningful way.”

Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.
