Ice Industries Verified as SDVOSB by the US Department of Veterans Affairs

Designation Can Assist Ice Industries' Customers in Achieving Their SDVOSB Sourcing Goals

SYLVANIA, OH--(Marketwired - Sep 23, 2014) - Ice Industries has announced its verification by the US Department of Veterans Affairs Center for Verification and Evaluation as a Service-Disabled, Veteran-Owned, Small Business (SDVOSB). As such, Ice Industries' verified status is now reflected on the US Veteran's Administration VetBiz Website (https://www.vip.vetbiz.gov/Public/Search/ViewSearchResults.aspx?SCID=1944530). Federal agencies, prime contractors and commercial manufacturers seeking to achieve the SDVOSB sourcing goals or increase their qualified spend can find a highly qualified and experienced metal forming manufacturer in Ice Industries.

Created by the Veterans Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development Act of 1999 and bolstered by the Veterans Business Act of 2003; the SDVOSB designation established contracting goals for the General Services Administration (GSA), Veteran's Administration (VA), and other federal agencies. These advantages can be garnered by government and military suppliers working directly -- or in partnership -- with SDVOSBs. More information regarding the Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Businesses can be found on the GSA's Website at http://www.gsa.gov/service-disabled.

Ice Industries, founded in 1999, has since grown to five locations spanning North America's central business corridor. Specializing in deep draw metal stamping, welding, and assembly; the company serves a number of diverse markets, including air tanks, alternative energy, appliance, automotive, commercial truck, filtration, fire and safety, government, healthcare, and HVACR. The SDVOSB verification adds an additional key differentiator to Ice Industries' repertoire.

The company is led by its founder, CEO and veteran, Howard Ice. He is proud to continue serving his country through small business ownership. States Mr. Ice: "The Verified SDVOSB status provides important minority content for our customers who are bidding on or fulfilling large military, government or OE contracts. While pursuing projects, these customers prefer working directly with the actual manufacturer, rather than an intermediary company."

"Manufacturers seeking SDVOSB suppliers can gain a key competitive advantage using Ice Industries as their metal forming, welding and assembly partner," added Paul Bishop, Ice Industries' President and COO. "With the focus on SDVOSB content intensifying, our customers need more than just service companies. They need qualified, diverse and capable manufacturing companies to work with to increase their SDVOSB spend and to bolster their competitiveness."
