Capalino’s MWBE Consulting Group worked with Limnes Corp, a forerunner in the industrial structural steel cleaning and painting industry, to achieve their Woman-Owned Business (WBE) certification in New York City, opening new doors for the company and positioning themselves for greater success.
Founded in 2010, Limnes Corp. specializes in cleaning, painting, and lead abatement of various bridges and viaduct public agencies. They also provide and install secondary shields/platforms across New York City. Limnes Corp. has successfully completed projects with NYC Transportation Authority, NYC Department of Transportation, Tully Construction, and El Sol Contracting, but they wanted to expand their profile and foothold in the industry.
The MWBE Consulting Group worked with Limnes Corp. to achieve their New York certification, as well as help with submitting bids to City and State RFP’s and networking with General Contractors who need subcontractors for structural steel services.
Capalino was able to navigate the application process by working closely with Limnes Corp. to understand the company’s uniquely complicated history and address their individualized needs. Given the quick timeline to submit the application, it was necessary to set weekly goals, provide checklists, and engage in continual follow-ups. In the future, Limnes Corp. intends to expand its reach by taking advantage of the Capalino’s various networking opportunities.
Popi Shinas, CEO of Limnes Corp., believes the certification and the guidance of the MWBE Consulting Group will open new doors for her business. Specifically, Limnes is currently seeking to provide their expertise to the NYCDOT and NYCTA. As a result of receiving this certification, Limnes has elevated their profile and positioned themselves to have a better chance of winning City contracts, resulting in future success and growth for the company.
Limnes Corp. prides itself on its high-quality services and its exceptional personnel, who all have certifications from The Society for Protective Coatings, NACE international, The Worldwide Corrosion Authority, and are members of Local 806/DC9.
