Stratix Gains National Recognition

Stratix Ranked 56th Among Nation's Top 500 Diversity-Owned Business List

NORCROSS, GA--(Marketwire - March 20, 2008) - For the fourth year in a row, Stratix Corporation, a leading mobile enterprise solutions provider, has been recognized by DiversityBusiness.com, the nations' leading multicultural internet site. Stratix was ranked as the 56th largest company in the Top 500 Diversity-owned businesses in the United States (Div500).

The Div500 is the 8th annual listing of the Nation's top 500 diversity-owned businesses. The companies listed on the Div500 represent the Nation's top multicultural earners and challenge the long-held notion that a diversity-owned business is small or insignificant. Div500 members are sought after by major corporations wishing to increase spending with diversity-owned companies.

The Impact of Diversity Business

"Diversity businesses and consumers are a growing force in the U.S. economy, and a force to be reckoned with," said Kenton Clarke, CEO of Computer Consulting Associates International, the company that built DiversityBusiness.com. "This is a whole business segment that can carry its own, that provides jobs, products and services, and generates wealth for their communities. These are the new leaders in American business."

Affected by recent economic and demographic trends and changes, Fortune 1000 corporations throughout the country have recognized that buying products and services from diversity-owned companies positively impacts their business. Diversity-owned businesses contribute over $1.4 trillion in sales to the U.S. economy.

"Stratix's ability to deliver for a fourth consecutive year stellar growth is a testament to our dedicated team of associates and customers. We continue to build strong relationships with our customers and business partners such as Motorola. Stratix has grown into a strong company by using our unparalleled industry knowledge and expertise to deliver complete mobile application solutions which help our customers revolutionize their businesses," said Bonney Shuman, Stratix Chief Executive Officer.

The Div500

The Div500 is a classification that represents the top 500 diversity-owned (Women, African American, Hispanics, Asians, Native Indian and other minority groups) businesses in the U.S., in sectors such as technology, manufacturing, food service and professional services. Large organizational buyers throughout the country that do business with multicultural and women-owned businesses use the list. The Div500 is produced annually by DiversityBusiness.com, the nation's leading multicultural B2B Internet portal that links large organizational buyers to multicultural product and service suppliers.

Stratix will be honored at a special awards ceremony at DiversityBusiness.com's "8th Annual Multicultural Business Conference," taking place April 23 - 25, 2008 at Disney's BoardWalk Resort in Orlando, Florida.
