CP Environmental Group, Inc. Named to Pennsylvania’s Top Business List for the Third Consecutive Year

In recognition of the economic power of privately held businesses, DiversityBusiness.com, the nations’ leading business-to-business internet site, recently named CP Environmental Group as one of the top businesses in the United States.

Pittsburgh, PA, June 03, 2009 --(PR.com)-- This is the 9th annual listing of Pennsylvania’s top businesses by DiversityBusiness.com. Companies listed on the Top Business Lists represent the Nation’s top multicultural earners and challenge the long-held notion that a privately held business is small or insignificant. Winners are sought after by major corporations wishing to increase spending with small businesses.

On being notified of CPEG’s selection, Peggy Carpenter, President, said
“We are honored to have been selected as one of Pennsylvania’s Top 100 diversity-owned businesses for the third year in a row. This recognition was only achieved through the hard work and dedication of the CPEG team to provide cost-effective and creative business solutions to our clients’ environmental challenges – achieving/exceeding our clients’ expectations is one of our basic operating principles.”

“Entrepreneurs 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.”

The List
This List is a classification that represents the top small businesses in the U.S., in sectors such as technology, manufacturing, food service and professional services. Large organizational buyers throughout the country that do business with multicultural, small and women-owned businesses use the list. The List is produced annually by DiversityBusiness.com, the nation's leading multicultural B2B Internet portal that links large organizational buyers to multicultural product and service suppliers.
