For immediate release

National Minority Supplier Development Council (“NMSDC”), one of the country’s leading corporate membership organizations, was chartered in 1972 to provide increased procurement and business opportunities for minority businesses of all sizes.

CHICAGO — (CORPORATE WIRE) — Jul. 26, 2022 — Today Cruz Construction has announced their Minority Business Enterprise (“MBE”) certification by the NMSDC.

This certification, awarded to select minority owned business after a rigorous interview and application process, acknowledges Cruz Construction’s status as a legitimate minority business enterprise.

“I am excited to announce our membership to such a great organization,” says Edwar Luengas-Cruz, President and CEO of Cruz Construction. “When we founded Cruz, we did so with a mission to amplify and promote opportunities for minorities by creating them at Cruz through larger construction projects across the Chicagoland area. The CMSDC shares these values with us, and we are excited to maximize this opportunity and partnership.”

With over 1,750 corporate members throughout their national network, including most of America’s largest publicly owned, privately owned, and foreign owned companies, the NMSDC aims to match more than 12,000 minority owned businesses with its member corporations.

“With this certification, we are laser focused on creating opportunities for emerging subcontractors and rising engineering candidates of color,” says Tony Michuda, VP of Business Development. “There are incredible people and companies looking to be bigger and better. Each new project gives us another chance to build ladders of opportunity for those that are willing to climb them."
