ACS Group Named GMSDC’s Class 4 Supplier of the Year
ACS Group was recently named the Supplier of the Year, Class 4, through the Georgia Minority Supplier Diversity Council’s (GMSDC) Spirit of Alliance Awards. These awards recognize the best in supplier chain management and supplier diversity.
The Spirit of Alliance Awards stay true to its celebratory roots in achievement, tribute, and recognition. The nominees, winners, and the Blue Legend recipient collectively represent the best in the business and ongoing advocacy of progressive minority supplier development in Georgia.
The Supplier of the Year category recognizes the GMSDC-certified Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) who consistently provide quality products and exceptional service to their customers. These outstanding companies exemplify strength, power, and promote the viability of minority businesses. Class 4 is for companies whose annual sales are greater than $50 million.
The GMSDC hosted the 35th Spirit of Alliance Awards on August 25th where they honored leaders and organizations from the state’s business community who are making a difference by creating jobs and contract opportunities for minority suppliers. The gala celebrates the corporations, Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs), and supplier diversity professionals that are setting the standard for minority small business development in Georgia. The theme of the event – Own The Moment – challenged the GMSDC community to be engaged and proactive in its approach to business opportunity in 2017.
“As an equal-opportunity MBE that embraces and learns from the diversity within our workplaces and the markets we serve, we could not be more thrilled with this recent designation,” said Raj Sardana, CEO of ACS Group. “The accomplishments of ACS Group would not be possible without the strong partnership of our employees, our clients, and the support from our community, and we would like to thank the GMSDC for this recognition.”
“This time of year is always special at the GMSDC when we get to honor the many corporate partners and small business owners doing great things in supplier diversity,” said GMSDC President and CEO Stacey Key. “The Spirit of Alliance Awards highlights the best and brightest in Georgia, one of the most progressive business communities anywhere. It is wonderful to see the impact this organization has on building legacies and strengthening communities all across the state.”
