Carmin Industries Selected as Chase Bank: Mission Small Business Winner
Veteran Owned Business Member Wins $250,000 Grant
Veteran Owned Business Member Carmin Industries has been awarded a Mission: Small Business grant to expand its Precision Waterjet Cutting and Metal Fabrication Services. Selected from over 70,000 applicants, Carmin was one of 12 businesses to receive a $250,000 grant from Chase and LivingSocial. Carmin was selected for its growth plan and potential to make a positive impact on the community. President Carolyn Minerich said “We are so excited to be a part of this program. We look to employ veterans when we can, and encourage other businesses to help our fellow veterans find employment. Small businesses really can make a positive impact in our communities.”
Carmin Industries is a veteran, woman-owned small business that specializes in short-run, high-quality parts for architectural, aerospace and defense, and commercial industries. After serving as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps, Carolyn Minerich saw an opportunity to start Carmin Industries, a precision waterjet cutting and fabrication business, from scratch. The company has since grown by 350 percent and employs 15 full-time employees working on complex assignments for a range of clients from universities to theme parks.
