Veterans Day 2017: Veteran Owned Business Celebrates 9th Anniversary with Launch of New Government Contracting Feature
New NAICS code search system allows contracting personnel the unique ability to search for and find potential vendors who are designated as veteran/service disabled veteran owned businesses
Melbourne, FL— (11/11/2017) — VeteranOwnedBusiness.com — in honor of its 9th Anniversary — has launched a North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Search Engine and Directory specifically of businesses owned by veterans and service disabled veterans (SDVOSBs/DVBEs). This new feature allows procurement personnel from government agencies, prime/sub-contractors and every day consumers the ability to search for and find businesses who have classified their veteran owned business under specific codes.
“Veteran Owned Business’ (VOB) new NAICS search system allows visitors to search by codes in addition to finding business members by category and geographically by state, county, city and a specific radius around a zip code,” said VeteranOwnedBusiness.com Founder, Brian K. St.Ours. “Since launching on Veterans Day 2008, our mission has been to continue to match up Veteran Business Owners with those seeking to find them quickly and easily! Our new NAICS system is the next step in getting our members in front of contractors who are looking–in some cases mandated–to find them specifically by these codes.
Veteran Owned Business is a free online portal that helps businesses owned by prior military members share their products and services with purchasing departments around the country as well as with fellow veterans and everyday consumers. Since launching on Veterans Day 2008, VeteranOwnedBusiness.com has grown from a simple online directory to a comprehensive network with nearly 30,000 members nationwide and over 300,000 supporters. The site has had over 25,000,000 visitors and over 120,000,000 pages viewed since launching. Site users include purchasing personnel from small businesses, government agencies and some of our country’s largest corporations. The easy to use interface also allows the average consumer a quick way to search for products and services that are all unique in the fact that they are made by, serviced by and/or sold by United States military veterans.
“We’ve communicated with 1,000s of visitors over the years; many of whom stumbled upon our site by accident.” added St.Ours. “One common message we continue to hear even to this day is how so very proud these folks are to try and do business with those who served our great nation. I can think of no better way to truly show your support for those who served than by helping them as they build their respective businesses.”
