National Minority Supplier Development Council Certification

We are proud recipients of this certification from the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC). This honor comes with access to other certified companies as well as a network of buying agencies. Both give us an expansive network of opportunities to serve our customers better. The NMSDC is a 50-year-old organization that encourages equity and entrepreneurship in minority communities.  

Certified Small Disadvantaged Business

This certification is given to us by the Small Business Administration (SBA). Because of it, we can contract with 24 agencies in the executive branch of the government. To qualify for this certification, businesses must be majority-owned by one or more disadvantaged persons.  

Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business

This is another certification that we have received from the SBA, and we’re incredibly honored by this acknowledgment. This certification is provided to businesses with an owner who has a service-related disability and is active in the company’s daily operations. The federal government has committed to giving at least 3% of its contracting dollars to businesses with this certification. We are grateful for the opportunities this provides us and the connections we’re able to establish with other companies and government agencies because of those opportunities.  

Disadvantaged Business Enterprise

We have received this certification from the Missouri Regional Certification Committee. The program also partners with other agencies such as the East-West Gateway Council of Governments, Bi-State Development/Metro, St. Louis Lambert International Airport Business Development (aka the City of St. Louis), and the Kansas City Area Transit Authority. This certification allows our business to participate in state bids as prime contractors or as subcontractors.  

Certified Minority Business Enterprise

This is another certification issued by the NMSDC. To obtain this certification, we had to show that our business is owned by a minority individual(s) with at least a 25% equity stake. As minority business owners, we’re incredibly proud of this certification and the access it gives us to opportunities and organizations to better serve our customers.  

Certified Service-Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise

This certification from the state of Missouri allows us to fulfill contractual obligations where other companies cannot and enables us to bid for specific contracts. Our team is grateful to the federal government, the state of Missouri, and local community members for recognizing M&T Solutions with these certifications. We are dedicated to lending our support to other minority and veteran-owned businesses in our community, and using our connections to benefit our customers and the local organizations we work with.   If your organization is working on a contract or project that has inclusionary goals or requirements, the M&T team is here to help! Contact us today to discuss your goals and project scope, and we’ll get you started with an account to browse our online store for everything you need.
