MESSAGE FROM THE GENERAL MANAGER
A cornerstone of the MBCR business mission is our commitment to excellence in service delivery to our customers and to the communities that we serve. Equally important is the MBCR commitment to diversity and inclusion in all our programs and practices. Our DBE Program is vital to this commitment. It will assist MBCR in building relationships with diverse suppliers who can foster growth and opportunities for the communities that we serve.
The DBE Program Vendor Connection is a progressive concept, designed to provide information about MBCR, and our product and services needs. We are seeking diverse suppliers who, through the provision of quality goods and services at competitive prices, can meet MBCR’s unique business needs - suppliers who share MBCR’s commitment to service excellence and diversity and inclusion.
We are enthusiastic about this online information and registration website. We look forward to continuously expanding the MBCR supplier base and to maintaining a portfolio of diverse, innovative and competitive suppliers from a variety of industries. You can play an integral part in this effort.
We encourage you to register your business today, as the first step in building a new and vibrant relationship.
In closing, we look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship established through this connection and greatly appreciate your contributions and efforts. Together, we will embark on a journey leading to greater possibilities for our customers, employees and for our communities. Please join us in traveling the rails of opportunity. All Aboard!
