Storage Systems Unlimited Certified as a Woman-Owned Business
Storage Systems Unlimited has achieved certification as a female-owned enterprise by the Women’s Business Enterprise Council (WBENC), said Karen Kreager, CEO.
WBENC is the largest certifier of women-owned businesses in the United States and a leading advocate for women business owners. Storage Systems certification validates that the business is at least 51% owned, controlled, operated and managed by a woman. WBENC certification is recognized by more than 1,000 companies.
âWe are proud to receive this designation,â Kreager said. “There are many companies that have diversity buying programs and having the WBENC seal of approval will open new doors for our business.”
Kreager and her husband, Bill, founded Storage Systems in 1997. He is the company’s chief revenue officer. Storage Systems partners with large manufacturing companies to sell their products primarily to healthcare facilities. The company has sales agreements with major group purchasing organizations including HealthTrust Purchasing Group, Intalere, Magnet and CHAMPS, giving Storage Systems access to thousands of hospitals, surgery centers, pharmacies, long-term care facilities and more across the country. These agreements allow the company to provide not only products, but also planning and design, installation and project management to customers across the United States. Storage Systems is actively involved in Middle Tennessee, supporting many organizations such as A Vintage Affair, Downtown Franklin Rotary, and CityCurrent.
