Pittsburgh Umbrella Company Gets National Certification

Pittsburgh Umbrella Company Gets National Certification

Miami, FL (PRWEB) March 27, 2006

Pittsburgh Umbrella Company (PUC) is recognized by the National Minority Business Development Council’s Florida Region as a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE). With this Certification PUC a Hispanic owned and operated business, has a direct link with corporate America. Which is the primary objective of the National Minority Supplier Development Council, one of the country’s leading business membership organizations. It was chartered in 1972 to provide increased procurement and business opportunities for minority businesses of all sizes.

Since the Certification of PUC, the company has manufactured professional golf umbrellas for Tyco/ADT, Carter Brothers and has been accepted by the Super Bowl XLI committee as a possible vendor for the Super Bowl taking place in Miami on Sunday, February 4, 2007.

Ramón Zayas, Director of Pittsburgh Umbrella Company stated that “Having this national certification is to us like finding a little gold mine.” While he expects that it’s the quality of his umbrellas that continue to make his company grow, “the Certification just adds more credibility to our business as an MBE."

According to an article released today by AP, The number of Hispanic-owned businesses grew at three times the national rate for all companies from 1997 to 2002, the government said Tuesday. Hispanics owned nearly 1.6 million businesses in 2002, a 31 percent increase from five years earlier, according to the Census Bureau report.

The company is young, filled with energy and vision and are successful because they don’t give up. Bringing technology to umbrellas, Pittsburgh Umbrella Company has brought to the market place the watermark umbrella. This umbrella has company logos throughout the Air-Jet fabric which are nearly invisible when the umbrella is dry. Step out in the rain and the logos come shining through for all to see. “Certification is great,” says Zayas, “but our technology is what really moves us."
