 North Vernon, IN. — May 17, 2021 — Decatur Mold Tool & Engineering, a business specializing in injection mold manufacturing, is proud to announce national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Great Lake’s Women’s Business Council, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

“For over 55 years, Decatur Mold has built its reputation on delivering quality results for our customers,” said President and CEO, Rhonda Hoerle. “As a family-owned business, we are committed to continuing this legacy of great service for our customers and creating a place where our employees can build fulfilling careers.    Our certification as a WBE is the next phase in our development as a company and we are excited to offer our customers the opportunity to add diversity to their supply chains.”

The WBENC standard of certification implemented by the Great Lakes 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.

By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs.
