Company’s woman-owned status helps clients meet diversity goals

OAKDALE, Pa., March 18 ― TIGG Corporation, a manufacturer of steel tanks and pressure vessels that are primarily used as activated carbon adsorption and filtration units for environmental remediation, industrial emission control and other water and air purification applications recently received national certification from the Woman’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

            Many corporations and federal, state and local governments strive to include woman-owned businesses on their list of preferred vendors. By obtaining its WBENC certificate, TIGG is easily identified as a woman-owned company.

            “More and more of our customers have made a commitment to diversity in their supply chain,’ said TIGG Owner Georgiana Riley, who purchased the company in 1999. “We are pleased to receive the WBENC certification because it allows us to better serve clients who place a priority on inclusiveness.”

            Prior to owning the company, Riley worked in several areas of the activated carbon industry including chemistry, sales, marketing and management. In addition to being the president/owner of TIGG, she is on the board of directors of Catalyst Connection, the board of Adagio Health and is the chairperson of her local sewage authority.

            In order to achieve its WBENC status, TIGG underwent a rigorous certification process that included a review of the company’s corporate by laws, financial and tax information, articles of incorporation and an on-site inspection. The certification is already paying off—in 2012, the WBENC certification helped TIGG meet the diversity requirements of one of its largest clients.

            TIGG is also certified as a woman-owned business with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the California Public Utilities Commission. With a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, a team of highly skilled workers, an experienced engineering department and more than 35 years in business, not only is TIGG a certified woman-owned business, it is also an innovative industry leader.
