Allegiance Environmental Services secures SMWBE and HUB certifications

San Antonio-based Allegiance Environmental Services (EVS), a professional provider of eco-friendly cleaning services, announces that it has met the requirements of certification by the South Central Texas Regional Certification Agency (SCTRCA) to secure the designation of a small emerging business, minority Asian Pacific American woman-owned enterprise, and has also met the State of Texas’ guidelines to qualify for the Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) classification.
Allegiance EVS is woman-owned and operated by COO Donna Flores, and co-owned by CEO Kenneth Flores, CHESP, who each have 20 years of experience and expertise in managing administration, operations and client services for healthcare environmental services and commercial cleaning contracts for governmental and private sector customers.
Donna Flores, whose heritage traces to Indonesia where her mother was born and raised before immigrating to the U.S., says the certifications are integral for the evolution of the business. “Since our company’s inception in 2015, we have set a course for strategic growth, and the SCTRCA and HUB labels assist Allegiance in our efforts to target governmental and public sector contracts set aside for these business categories,” she explains.
According to the National Women’s Business Council, women have been launching businesses at nearly twice the rate of men over the last 25 years - even as the nation’s economic growth slowed. “Our goal is to achieve thoughtful organizational growth and create private sector jobs in the area of healthcare environmental services for U.S. Department of Defense and private medical treatment centers which require the highest levels of cleaning standards,” says Flores.
The leadership team of Allegiance Environmental Services has been keeping it clean in San Antonio and surrounding areas, across Texas and the United States for nearly 20 years through the professional management and delivery of eco-friendly healthcare environmental services, commercial janitorial, construction clean-up and specialized floor care to customers in the governmental, public and private sectors, while controlling quality of our performance in conformance to rigorous cleaning standards, investing in our employees’ professional development and serving our community. Certified ESBE, SBE, MBE, ABE, WBE
