Designer's Specialty Millwork Leads in the Industry Through an MBDA Partnership
Designer's Specialty Millwork (DSM) is an industry leader in the manufacturing/millwork sector. Established in 1994, the company has experienced tremendous growth and earned a commendable reputation for its commitment to customer service, quality work, and time management. G.G. Harrison, DSM's owner, was looking to take the company to the next level and expand their portfolio into the public sector.
The Miami MBDA Business Center was DSM's ideal partner for pursuing government contracts. In addition to extensive relationships in both private and public sectors, the Miami MBDA Business Center currently serves as a registered primary source in identifying minority sub-contractors for the Florida Marlins Stadium project. DSM worked with MBDA to strengthen its business model for government contracting and benefited from consulting services to identify opportunities and prepare strong bid packages. By joining forces with the MBDA, DSM has received over $7.2 million in contract awards and created over 30 new jobs in Miami-Dade County, Florida.
The company currently reports annual revenues in excess of $14 million and continues to exceed expectations on every contract.
