MBDA Helps to Advance Healthcare IT Services in Atlanta
In FY 2012, the Atlanta MBDA Business Center, which specializes in healthcare IT and advanced manufacturing, provided an array of consulting services to ENVIRO AgScience, Inc. Extensive work in the areas of strategic planning, project management, bid preparation, and succession planning helped ENVIRO strengthen its successful construction division by adding prime contracting and general construction services. As a result of this consulting and MBDA's recommendation to become 8(a) certified, ENVIRO secured contracts with the U.S. Army valued at over $12 million, saving dozens of jobs previously slated for elimination.
"While we use consultants for business development, we have found the Atlanta MBDA Business Center to be the most reliable, dependable, and cost efficient. They have become an integral part of our team, bringing the resources and expertise our company needs to grow to the next level," said Dr. Louis Lynn, President and CEO.
