Small Business Administration names Swain Techs top regional minority-owned small business
A media tour of the business with interview and photo opportunities will begin at 9:30 a.m at the company’s office, located at 2 Walnut Grove Drive, Suite 110, with Leta and Swain Techs President Manuel Trujillo. The event is also slated to feature guests Michael Kane, U.S. SBA Eastern Pennsylvania deputy director; and David R. White, vice president of Wells Fargo.
“It’s wonderful to … recognize the achievements of leading minority-owned Pennsylvania small businesses like Swain Techs,” Leta said. “SBA and our resource and lending partners, like Wells Fargo, are proud to play a role in helping them start and succeed.”
Trujillo has led Swain Techs since 2009, when he acquired the company with investment assistance from Wells Fargo.
“Manuel Trujillo deserves recognition for his … commitment to strengthening and growing minority-owned businesses in the Greater Philadelphia community and beyond,” White said. “Acquiring Swain Techs presented the opportunity for him to return to his entrepreneurial roots that started in Bogota, Colombia, with a family-run IT firm he co-founded and led.”
With over a decade of proven small business strategic technology solutions, Swain Techs also maintains a Washington, D.C., office. The firm recently won multi-million dollar contracts with the U.S. Navy, Department of Health and Human Services, Defense Logistics Agency, Department of Homeland Security and Patent and Trade Office.
