QUESTION & ANSWER SESSION

Why should your business be included in the minority & women business spotlight? We are a small company on the rise with a team of diverse individuals. It is within our ability to share our successes and inspire other MWBs to rise alongside us.

What was the biggest “win” in your business’ history? MASS Medical’s biggest win was when we flipped the account of the world’s largest endoscope manufacturer, Olympus, by convincing them to make the switch to MASS Medical Storage for their cabinets. We are now featured alongside their endoscopes, making us the premier choice for storing their products.

What’s one valuable lesson you’ve learned that you would share with other business owners? Invest in people and value the diversity and background that they can bring to the table. Hire on ambition, attitude, and intelligence.

Tell us an interesting and fun fact about your business. MASS Medical is an apparel company masquerading as a manufacturing company. Every new release or season, there is new apparel for our employees to model. It’s possible if you’ve worked at the company long enough, you can wear something MASS Medical every day of the week.
