Tompkins Excavating Receives Business of the Year Award

It’s been a successful first half of 2017 for Tompkins Excavating, which was recently awarded the title of 2017 Business of the Year from the Hudson Valley Gateway Chamber of Commerce, and was granted WBENC certification by the Women Presidents’ Educational Organization NY Certification Committee.

The Chamber of Commerce welcomed 250 guests to celebrate the accomplishments of the company they believed had developed and grown into a thriving business, making them the 2017 Business of the Year. The nominees were evaluated on 3 basic principles: growth in business volume, innovativeness of product or service provided, and evidence of contribution and commitment to the community.

In addition to being recognized as Business of the Year, Tompkins Excavating recently received WBENC Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) Certification from the Women Presidents’ Educational Organization (WPEO) NY Certification Committee. WBENC certification is the most widely recognized and respected national certification for Women’s Business Enterprises. Upon acquiring WBENC certification, business owners receive assistance from the WPEO to ensure their business is benefited, and are given access to a national database of top corporations with supplier diversity programs for sourcing certified WBEs. –
