Created by Congress in 1998, the HUBzone project requires that agencies of the Federal Government spend more than three percent of their budgets with qualified businesses located in HUBzones.

The HUBzone program (Historically Underutilized Business zone) is designed to help small businesses in urban an rural areas benefit from Federal spending, while bringing supplier diversity to prime government contracts. It is administered by the Small Business Administration.

Since receiving HUBZone approval, our company has grown our product line from aerospace and electronics components to a full line of government utilized products. STE International looks forward to the opportunity to work with government prime contractors and help grow our local economy.

If you or your business is interested in participating in HUBZone contracts, please email to: or call Randy Ray at 727-289-7232.
