Company wins 5 government contracts worth over $450,000
Wulfenstein Construction Company, a certified HUBZone small business located in rural Pahrump, Nevada (rural Nye County), has been in business for over 34 years, providing the highest quality construction products including sand, gravel, and asphalt as well as construction services such as site preparations, building pads, grading, and asphalt paving.
They came to the Nevada PTAC two years ago for help in identifying contracting opportunities and for training on how to submit government proposals. Thanks to their use of technology platforms such as GoToWebinar, the PTAC can reach businesses throughout the State of Nevada with monthly workshops and training without requiring the time and expense of travel. Russ Lewis, Project Manager for the company, was able to participate in five PTAC webinars in 2014, and had the additional support of Procurement Specialist Linda Mitchell, who supports Pahrump-area clients with periodic site visits and in-person counseling.
Their efforts paid off. In the fall of 2014, Wulfenstein Construction was awarded five contracts with federal and state agencies, including Nevada Test Site, CalTrans, the National Park Service and the Bureau of Land Management, totaling over $450,000, creating jobs for nine temporary workers in addition to their existing staff of 35 full time employees. Says Lewis, “The Nevada PTAC Procurement Outreach Program has been very helpful in supplying job leads and training for submitting the proposals.”
