Dunkin & Bush Inc., a Kirkland, Wash.-based business specializing in industrial coatings contracting and related services, announced that it has received national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

The designation makes Dunkin & Bush one of the few protective and industrial coatings companies to be certified as a woman-owned enterprise.

WBENC’s national standard of certification mandates a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by a woman or women.

By including women-owned businesses among their vendors, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier/vendor diversity programs, Dunkin & Bush said in announcing the certification.

WBENC is the nation’s largest third-party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women in the U.S. The WBENC is a resource for the more than 700 U.S. companies and government agencies that rely on WBENC’s certification as an integral part of their supplier diversity programs.

A family-owned business since 1943 and now headed by fourth-generation company executive Deidre Dunkin, Dunkin & Bush recently moved to a new corporate headquarters facility in Kirkland, Wash. The company also operates offices in Alaska; Bellingham, Wash;, Oregon; California; Utah; and Hawaii, with a work force of more than  300 craft and support personnel.

The company’s industrial services include industrial painting, scaffolding, and insulation, with an extensive client base of private and public customers.

Dunkin & Bush was featured in the Top Contractors report in the April issue of the Journal of Protective Coatings & Linings (JPCL). In the report, Deidre Dunkin related how the company was started in Alaska by her great-grandfather, C.O. Dunkin, who had actually gone there to start a Baptist mission. The company expanded from its Alaska origins under C.O. Dunkin’s son, Tom, and then under the leadership of Tom Dunkin II, Deidre’s father. Currently, the company serves customers in Alaska; the West Coast including California: Hawaii; and other states west of the Rockies.

Also a company executive is another Dunkin family member, Project Manager Tom Dunkin III, Deidre’s brother.
