Stories of Success
This year, I attending the MHCC Annual Golf Outing for the first time and – it was a great event and very well attended by many high level corporate executives. What a great outing to network and connect with other business owners and talk business in a fun and casual environment. Eco Plastics became a member of the MHCC this year and becoming a member of the Chamber has helped our business grow in many ways.

I am a regular participant at many MHCC events and I find them educational, entertaining and very value added to me personally and it gives the firm visibility and notoriety to other companies that I may not otherwise be associated with in the business community. Attending the Chamber events it gives me a level of access and opportunities to connect with other promenade organizations in our diverse community in metro Detroit. The MHCC Executive Director, Camilo Suero and his staff are great and I look forward to continuing my relationship with the Chamber for many years.

Being a member of MHCC over the past 15 years has given me access to many great Hispanic business leaders and companies who built a strong foundation on quality and performance. We have learned much from those founders who started their companies in the early days of supplier diversity. Today MHCC and Hispanic owned businesses in the network are taking innovation, technology and outstanding products/services and operating as trusted and vital suppliers within Fortune 500 corporate supply chains. This adds tremendous value to the companies we serve as well as the community as a whole.
