Commercial contractor Zernco adds ‘woman owned’ certification

The commercial general contracting company Zernco, Inc. has received certification as a Woman Owned Business Enterprise and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise from the state Department of Commerce and Kansas Department of Transportation.

The certification process confirms that a business is at least 51 percent owned by women and is operated and controlled by one or more women. The certifications are used by many government agencies and some private contractors as a factor in consideration of awarding work for projects and other business relationships.

Zernco was founded by Dave and Jan Zerngast, whose daughter Ashley Thill assumed the role of president in 2012. Previously Thill served as Zernco vice president.
