A more diverse supplier base brings innovation and competition to the market place, allowing businesses to have great impact on the national economy. It helps grow small business, it helps create new jobs, and it has significate tax revenue benefits at the local, state, and federal levels. Bullard Company wants to help our customers AND build relationships that demonstrate commitment to the economic growth of all communities. Loading and unloading access equipment is a necessity in many industries. Our certifications allow our customers to not only procure safe, rigid, and quality products; but, also allows our customers to have confidence that they are investing in a company that is representative of the shifting demographics in our country.”
