"Becoming WBENC-Certified WBE was a goal that Bonnie [Radjenovich, VP of human resources and co-owner], and myself [president/CEO/co-owner] set to achieve a couple of years ago to foster continued growth for our company. In recent years we have been asked if we [Felling Trailers Inc.] held this certification, as it is a piece that many of our business partners looking to diversify their supply chains are guided by. It is truly satisfying seeing the certification process come to completion knowing that this is another door of opportunity for the continued growth of our family business," said Brenda Jennissen, Felling Trailers Inc. CEO.
