ITI Manufacturing is proud to announce today that it has become a member of Certified Employee-Owned (Certified EO), the leading certification program for employee-owned companies in America.
ITI Manufacturing is thrilled to partner with Certified EO. ITI Manufacturing believes in the employee-owned model and is excited to work with Certified EO and their members to bring more attention to this way of doing business.
To become a member of Certified EO, companies must pass a rigorous certification process to demonstrate that their employees own at least 30% of the business (exclusive of company founders), access to ownership is open to every employee, and the concentration of ownership is limited. Fewer than 1 in 200 American companies are eligible to join Certified EO so this truly is an honor to be associated with such a program.
“We’re excited to have ITI Manufacturing as our newest member,” said Thomas Dudley, CEO, and Co-founder of Certified EO. “We’re very aligned on values and recognize that employee ownership is good for workers, good for business, and good for communities. As an employee-owned company, ITI Manufacturing is a pillar of their community and at the forefront of creating an economy that works for everyone.”
