We believe that companies can be both profitable and purposeful.
To demonstrate this, Sustainment is incorporated as a Public Benefit Corporation, further cementing our mission to help American manufacturers into our corporate governance.
What is A Public
A “public benefit corporation” is a for-profit corporation that is intended to produce a public benefit and to operate in a responsible and sustainable manner.
Our Benefit Statement:
“The specific public benefit purpose of the corporation is to create a domestic manufacturing community with a positive effect on, primarily, small-medium manufacturers and the employees, communities, and government and industry organizations that support or rely on them.”
Our calling drives our behavior as a company:
We provide access to our platform free of charge to small and medium-sized American manufacturers. Our company goal is to help and enable these businesses, not profit from them.
We facilitate productive and efficient relationships between buyers and manufacturing suppliers so that you can know each other and work together directly, not through an intermediary.
We invest in technology and processes to ensure communications and file sharing on our platform meets modern cybersecurity and compliance requirements.
We help tell the real stories, successes, and challenges of our community members through our CompanyWeek platform, a premier online community for American manufacturers.
The Time for a New Era of American Manufacturing Is Now
We are committed to empower American manufacturing. Decades of outsourcing have created challenges, but technology now enables a high-skill workforce to compete with anyone in the world.
We are digitizing the middle layer of American manufacturing. As a group of experienced manufacturing executives with a can-do mindset, it is our mission to protect and grow American industry and jobs, particularly among the small and medium-sized enterprises that form the backbone of US industry. Expanding opportunities for high-skill and high-wage workers is what motivates us every single day.
We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished and the difference we are making. But we are just getting started. Join us as we continue to build, every day, just like you do.
”We built this business to help people. As veterans who grew up in small towns, we have a great respect for men and women who build. Our goal is to create tools and opportunity for American manufacturers.- Bret Boyd & Michael MorfordCofounders
