The U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) 8(a) Business Development Program, named for a section of the Small Business Act, is a business development program created to help small disadvantaged businesses compete in the American economy and access the federal procurement market.

E=MC4I, Inc. is one of only two 8(a) SDB Metal Manufacturers (NAICS code 332322) in South Carolina at this time. Our company was awarded acceptance into the Section 8(a) Program in March of 2010. This program runs for a term of 9 years, ending March 2019.

Our minority, woman-owned company has also been certified as a Small Disadvantaged Business in the Federal Government’s SDB program.
