The U.S. Small Business Administration’s Eastern Pennsylvania District Office announced its 2017 Small Business Week Award Winners last month, and among the winners was SCORE client, USA Gypsum. The national leader in cost-effective gypsum drywall waste recycling won the SBA’s Eastern Pennsylvania District Entrepreneurial Success Award.
“Each year SBA recognizes the local, state and national award winners of its Presidentially-designated National Small Business Week to celebrate the achievements of small business and its advocates in eastern Pennsylvania,” said Director Antonio (Tony) Leta, SBA Eastern Pennsylvania District. “The award winners being honored have truly distinguished themselves and represent the very best that the eastern Pennsylvania small business community has to offer.”
