York Telecom Recognized as the 9th Fastest Growing Minority Business in NJ
York Telecom, a global provider of visual communications services and solutions, announced that it was recently acknowledged as the 9th fastest growing minority business in NJ by NJBIZ, moving up 4 slots from the previous year.
“This is a great achievement as it reflects how York has operated in the past being true to our origins and how we will proceed going forward under the progressive and aggressive direction of our new company president, David Phillips,” said Rebecca Kane, minority business administrator for York Telecom, in a statement. “This is a true testament that despite hard economic times, small minority businesses cannot only survive, but strive.”
“I take great pride as every York employee should, in knowing that their total commitment to York, the York vision and our mission to every one of our customers has contributed to us achieving this ranking,” said York Wang, founder and chairman of the Board of York Telecom.
The 26-year old York Telecom currently holds no fewer than a dozen MBE certificates, with NY/NJ Minority Business Council, State of New Jersey and the National Minority Business Council included.
The company received several recognitions over the past few months. York Telecom won the 2009 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award; one of the top 50 Fastest Growing Companies by NJBIZ for 2010 and the 2010 Council MBE Supplier of the year as nominated by Novartis Pharmaceuticals.
Recently, York Telecom announced it won a five-year extension of their IT GSA contract. The current extension will represent 15 consecutive years of York Telecom managing business with the Federal Government.
