We are honored to be recently nominated as a “Michigan 50 Companies to Watch” business by Michigan’s Small Business Development Council. The SBDC of West Michigan has been an incredible resource for Advantage as well as for other small businesses.
Advantage Mechanical-Refrigeration (AMR) is proud to announce national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Great Lakes Women’s Business Council, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), the nation’s largest third-party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women in the US.
WBENC’s national standard of certification implemented by the Great Lakes Women’s Business Council is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women.
By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs.

Apprentices from around the state competed in various contest categories including: Plumbing, Pipefitting, Welding and Service Technician.
