February 2014 Profiles

February is Minority-Owned Business Month

This February we are once again proud to profile businesses across Ohio who are leaders in their fields in our "Minority-Owned Businesses" theme. Speedy Signs & Apparel, in Cincinnati, started as a one-man operation in 2003 and has since grown into a large facility with plans to expand again. Their in-house capabilities include vinyl signs, printing and lamination, vehicle wraps and much more. Also calling Cincinnati home, Sophisticated Threads Consignments, is an upscale clothing consignment and resale boutique with an owner dedicated to giving back to her community by mentoring young boys and girls in urban areas of the city. ER Graphics, in McConnelsville, is a family-owned business and a leader in web design, print marketing and imprinted promotional products. In 2007, 2008 and 2009, they were nominated as one of the areas fastest growing businesses. Since 1935, Miamisburg-based Hooven-Dayton Corporation has been printing labels, coupons and tags and currently provides the Ohio Lottery with all of its receipt rolls and bet slips. Their customers range from Fortune 500 companies to small, private businesses. Headquartered in Toledo, Northwest Consultants, Inc. is an engineering design firm specializing in the design of public infrastructure and focusing on their main resource, their people. By hiring engineers just out of college, they strive to provide graduates with in-state employment to make an investment in the future of Ohio. PS Promotions, in Cleveland, started in 1992 offering engraved awards, printed apparel and promotional items. Awarded Entrepreneur of the year in 2005 by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the owner makes it a priority to give back to her community through volunteer work and offering scholarships to local Hispanic students. Crown Welding and Fabricating (The Welding King), in Columbus, offers clients nearly 30 years of welding, fabricating and machining experience. With a reputation in central Ohio as a highly-skilled welding company, they are proud to stand behind their motto “If it’s metal, we weld it!”

These businesses are leading examples of the strength and diversity of Ohio's business environment and great reasons we can all be proud to call Ohio home. For more on MBE/EDGE certified businesses in Ohio, visit the Ohio Department of Administrative Services.
