Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania—08/24/2022—Security Systems of America (SSA), better known as SSA, is proud to announce national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Enterprise Center East, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). For the last 50 years, SSA has proudly protected homes and businesses throughout the tri-state area by selling, installing, integrating, and servicing burglar, fire, CCTV, and access control systems.
SSA Owner & Corporate Officer Julie Beaver commented, “As a Women Business Enterprise, SSA has an opportunity to expand its commercial footprint, grow the business, increase its support for the local Wilkinsburg community, and encourage and motivate other women entrepreneurs.”
The WBENC standard of certification implemented by the Women’s Business Enterprise Center East is a meticulous process, including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by a woman or women.
By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs.
