North Wind Site Services Receives Small Business Designation

North Wind Site Services, LLC has been accepted into the U.S. Small Business Administration Section 8(a) Small Business Development Program. The designation makes North Wind Site Services eligible to compete and receive federal 8(a) contracts as well as receive business development assistance from SBA.

Launched in 2012, North Wind Site Services is focused on providing environmental remediation services across the U.S., including remedial investigation, environmental restoration, unexploded ordnance/military munitions remediation program, and regulatory public involvement services.

North Wind Site Services is one of six companies that form North Wind Group. North Wind Group president Chris Leichtweis commented that “We are excited about North Wind Site Service’s new designation and how it can open new opportunities for our growth plan and offer a complete complement of environmental services to our customers.” Kimberley Kearney, president of North Wind Site Services noted that “achieving this certification is another key step in developing Site Services and giving it a strong foundation for growth.” Kearney also commended the speed at which SBA processed the application. The certification was received a little more than 3 months after the application was submitted. Kearney believes the quick certification was a reflection that the application was thoroughly prepared and of North Wind Group’s knowledge of the SBA’s Section 8(a) Program.
