TESSEC, Dayton manufacturer, is adding jobs and helping keep America competitive

DAYTON – On Wednesday, July 11 U.S. Small Business Administrator Karen Mills will tour TESSEC, Inc.—a local small manufacturer. Mills and Dave Evans, President and CEO of TESSEC, will highlight the important role that small businesses play in manufacturing, job creation and government contracting. The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is helping companies like TESSEC compete on a national level, while generating jobs in the Dayton area.

Innovative small businesses are leading the way for America to remain competitive and win the future. TESSEC specializes in design, manufacturing, and project management. They create tooling and components for the aerospace/defense, automotive, Container (PET), medical and electronic industries.

With the help of SBA’s 8(a) Business Development Program, TESSEC has been able to grow, add five new jobs and successfully compete for government contracts. TESSEC recently won government contracts with the Department of Defense and is prepared to provide manufacturing services to other federal agencies such as the Department of the Army.

The 8(a) Business Development Program is a business assistance program for small disadvantaged businesses. The 8(a) Program offers a broad scope of assistance to firms that are owned and controlled at least 51% by social and economically disadvantaged individuals.

Since October 2011, SBA has provided Dayton area small business owners with over $55 million in financing.
