Custom Outdoor Furniture & Restrapping, the Grand Strand’s trusted source for high quality outdoor furniture, restrapping, and repairs, is proud to announce its national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Greater Women's Business Council, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
"We are absolutely thrilled that Custom Outdoor Furniture & Restrapping has been recognized by the WBENC," says CEO Sarah Marie "Sam" Cox. "Women-owned businesses in the outdoor furniture industry are a rarity, and that makes me all the more proud to have three generations of women at our helm. The WBENC does a remarkable job of promoting success for diverse groups, and we look forward to the new opportunities this certification allows."
WBENC’s national standard of certification implemented by the Greater Women's Business Council is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women.
In addition to this national recognition, Custom Outdoor Furniture & Restrapping enjoys a local reputation of unmatched customer service and repair skills for both residential and commercial needs. The store retails a wide range of premium, primarily American-made furniture brands, including Castelle Luxury, Telescope Casual Furniture, and Grosfillex Furniture; and, it offers a Commercial Maintenance Program, a cost-free furniture maintenance solution for hotels, resorts, homeowner associations, and other businesses.
By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their own supplier diversity programs — and Custom Outdoor Furniture & Restrapping is pleased to provide an avenue for corporations to fulfill that pledge.
