Spokane firm Womer & Associates receives minority business award

Womer & Associates, a Spokane-based architectural, engineering, and environmental services firm, is winner of this year’s Northeast Washington Minority Business of the Year Award.

The University of Washington’s Business and Economic Development Center (BEDC) made the selection and honored the company at a Seattle ceremony earlier this week. A total of seven Washington companies were honored.

Started in 1992 and owned by Native Americans, Womer has roughly 30 workers with offices in Spokane, Coulee Dam and Olympia.

Its work projects include the Spokane Airport, Coeur d’Alene Chamber of Commerce, Northern Quest Casino and  Inn of the Mountain Gods, in New Mexico.

The privately held company has rebounded from the recession and grown its 2010 revenues above pre-recession rates, the awards committee noted.
