                                              Local Business Gains National Recognition 
                                Local Woman Owned Business Named among Oregon’s Top 100

 Portland, Oregon, 2006 In recognition of the economic power of multicultural businesses, DiversityBusiness.com, the nations’ leading multicultural internet site, recently named C & L Metal Sales as one of the “Top 100 Woman Owned businesses in the state of Oregon (Div100)”. 

The Div100 is the 7th annual listing of the Oregon’s top 100 Woman Owned businesses.  Ranging in revenue size from 1,000,000 to over 8,200,000, the companies listed on the Div100 represent the state’s top Woman Owned earners and challenge the long-held notion that a Woman Owned business is small or insignificant. Div100 members are sought after by major corporations wishing to increase spending with Woman Owned businesses.

 “Woman Owned Businesses and consumers are a growing force in the U.S. economy, and a force to be reckoned with,” said Kenton Clarke, CEO of Computer Consulting Associates International, the company that built DiversityBusiness.com. This is a whole business segment that can carry its own, that provides jobs, products and services, and generates wealth for their communities.  These are the new leaders in American business.”
