Conventus Polymers gets certification by the National Minority Supplier Development Council, Inc. (NMSDC)



Sept 19, 2017


Parsippany, NJ - Conventus Polymers LLC, a global distributor, formulator,

and compounder of specialty thermoplastics, announced it has been granted

certification as a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) by the New York & New

Jersey Minority Supplier Development Council (NYNJMSDC), a regional affiliate

of the National Minority Supplier Development Council, Inc. (NMSDC).


Conventus is known for offering material expertise in strategic vertical markets,

alternative supply options in high-performance polymer families where selection

is limited, and helping customers reduce their raw material spend.


Some government agencies and corporations have policies in place to spend

approximately 20 percent of their budget with small, minority-owned businesses.

This MBE certification allows existing Conventus customers to officially recognize

their spend as going to a minority-owned business. It should also offer some

incentive for potential customers to evaluate Conventus as a supplier moving

forward.


Conventus co-founder and President Alexander Fung commented on achieving

MBE certification: “We are excited about this new certification for Conventus and,

more importantly, our customers. As a minority-owned and operated business,

customers have asked us about it for years. While achieving certification was a

lengthy process, we are happy to be able to offer this additional value to our

customers. We also look forward to working with the MBE community and its

corporate sponsors.”
