Subject: Copy Source Named to Nation's Top Business List for 2009
Bellingham Washington, March 3rd, 2009 In recognition of the economic power of privately held businesses, DiversityBusiness.com, the nation's leading business-to-business internet site, recently named Copy Source as one of the top businesses in the United States.
This is the 9th annual listing of the Nation's top businesses by DiversityBusiness.com. Companies listed on the Top Business Lists represent the Nation's top multicultural earners and challenge the long-held notion that a privately held business is small or insignificant. Winners are sought after by major corporations wishing to increase spending with small businesses.
"Entrepreneurs are a growing force in the U.S. economy, and a force to be reckoned with," said Kenton Clarke, CEO of Computer Consulting Associates International, the company that built DiversityBusiness.com. This is a whole business segment that can carry its own, that provides jobs, products and services, and generates wealth for their communities. These are the new leaders in American business."
Nadeem Israr, President of Copy Source said: "We are very proud to receive this recognition for the second year in a row as one of America's top businesses by DiversityBusiness.com in realization of service to our community for nineteen years. We are the home of the first full color digital offset press and full color digital image press in Whatcom County, and our very fast turn-around time, our competitive pricing, and our environmental friendly quality products and outstanding service personnel will allow us to continue to serve our clients, customers, and friends in the northern Puget Sound area, and throughout America, for years to come. We do appreciate our loyal customers and we promise to continue helping them through tough economic times."
This List is a classification that represents the top small businesses in the U.S., in sectors such as technology, manufacturing, food service and professional services. Large organizational buyers throughout the country that do business with multicultural, small and women-owned businesses use the list. The List is produced annually by DiversityBusiness.com, the nation's leading multicultural B2B Internet portal that links large organizational buyers to multicultural product and service suppliers.
The winning companies will be honored at a special awards ceremony at DiversityBusiness.com's "9th Annual Multicultural Business Conference", taking place April 29 - May 1, 2009 at the Disney's Contemporary Resort in Orlando, Florida.
"We do look forward to being with our many friends around the country at the end of April, said Israr, and continue building long-term relationships with our customers as well as learn about new trends and developments in the printing and copying business that we can share with our loyal customers. Copy Source is committed to carrying on the innovative and performance based printing traditions of more than 550 years. And we invite you - an individual, a business, a professional, or a nonprofit organization - to benefit from our state-of-the-art equipment and professional expertise to help you grow your organization in the future."
