Who are we

SDVOSB Materials Technology & Supply LLC (SDVOSB), and our SDVOSB Laboratory and LabTECH Environments division, is a Veteran owned, award winning, Diversity Supplier & full-service solution-provider and integrator of lab-facility-focused equipment, furniture, infrastructure, services and supplies.  We are a nationally Certified Diversity Supplier for commercial business and Federal, State and Local government buyers. Founded and managed by Service Disabled Veterans, we do what we say we will do. 

 

That is to say:  We plan, provide and install world-class equipment, furniture, products and services into the laboratory / research / health environments to meet the exact requirements of our clients. 

 

We Bring Laboratories to Life.

 

SDVOSB was established in 2017 primarily to take advantage of the enormous set-aside contracting programs by government entities (local, state, and federal) and corporations as a part of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives. These have only grown in size and scope with trends toward Buy American and support for small business, community-focused businesses, diversity and inclusion, and Veterans. To support this growth and to capture market share SDVOSB is both a Service Disabled, Veteran Owned, Small Business (SDVOSB) and a coveted Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) enterprise.  Our growth has been turbo-charged with our bringing on-board billion-dollar suppliers, such as Thermo Fisher Scientific, Baker, and MSC, that want to participate in the Diversity Supply set-asides market with us. This network of affiliates allows us to service even the largest Federal agencies like NASA, DoD, the Department of Veterans Affairs and Ames National Research Lab, plus State agencies including NY, FL, MD, OH, MA, TX, and VA, and corporations anywhere in the US for fulfillment, implementation, and distribution projects. This corporate vertical has become a major contributor to our growth as the largest corporations have their own diversity participation programs and those dealing with federal contracts have specific guidelines to fulfill with Diversity Supply participants. At this point there are not enough qualified HUBZone or SDVOSB’s to accommodate minimum spending mandated requirements of 3% federal spending each with HUBZone and SDVOSB’s, and 6% minimum procurement requirement for state agencies.

Key Elements:

  • Not enough HUBZone or SDVOSB certified companies to meet the demand.
  • National Footprint to serve Federal, State and Local gov’ts, education, biotech, and commercial research.
  • Underserved market niche worth billions of dollars.

 

Problem

An aging population in the West, growing healthcare in emerging markets, new technologies and therapeutics, new legal and safety requirements, concerns about lab safety, and, of course, the COVID-19 | SARS-CoV-2 pandemic are driving the industry. This pandemic has just ravaged the country and the World, while the supply-chain has faltered and left many researchers without the lab equipment and environments to do their critical work. At the same time, a wave of understanding of the requirement for equity for underserved groups who have committed their lives for the safety of the Nation has taken hold of America.

 

Most importantly, the Pandemic closed many labs, not allowing the professionals to do any work. This led SDVOSB Laboratory to begin work on our exclusive eLaboratory concept environments that allow important work and collaboration to continue under any conditions. Now, at a time when the world is still in an unprecedented global pandemic, a new report on the CDC gave very poor marks to the agency and we can assist there, the impact of laboratory infrastructure and advanced laboratory design has never been more profound.

 

The possible release of the COVID-19 virus from a secured biosafety level 4 (BSL-4) laboratory at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, overseen by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the need for enhanced pharma, bio and life sciences research to reduce the risk to lab workers and quicker response to future illnesses while fast tracking vaccines and therapeutics opens a gap in the laboratory infrastructure needed to meet the needs of the industry.  We fill this lab infrastructure gap.

 

Across scientific, educational and health related laboratory communities, people are planning a digital transformation to execute key technology strategies to create the digitally-enabled laboratory of the future. We can implement that vision. Our philosophy is to “reimagine” the laboratory, not “repackage” it with a digital veil. Rather than just digitalize old analog processes from the last century, we reimagine the laboratory utilizing advanced technology in automation, visualization, virtual reality, supply chain, and information management. Clients are looking to implement more effective device connectivity, applications that can streamline processes, and tools and techniques to increase safety and efficiency. This will be the cornerstone of our proposed R&D effort.

 

 

Scientific establishments such as research centers, laboratories, and biotech companies require superior quality laboratory equipment to perform a range of tests and experiments. The success of these activities depends upon the quality, strength, and durability of the equipment. They help to provide accurate results and also enhance work efficiency. This is eventually creating demand for the equipment and boosting the market growth. In addition, our advisor, famous laboratory designer, Victor Cardona who is a close friend to our COO, stated that because of the Pandemic and the poor showing of the response, there will be a huge wave of new and renovated laboratories across the country.

 

We are in the sweet-spot now and ready to deliver.  Veterans know how to prepare for a battle. The health and wellbeing of the citizens of the world is the end game. Safety and efficiency are our mantras for our Laboratory of the Future.

 

Solution

SDVOSB Laboratory – We Bring Laboratories to Life – Veteran Owned, Digitally Driven, Unique, Diversity Supply, for the Integrated Laboratory Infrastructure

 

SDVOSB (Service Disabled, Veteran Owned, Small Business) Laboratory (a division of award-winning SDVOSB Materials Technology & Supply LLC founded in 2017 with stable growth) is a Certified Diversity Supplier and digitally-driven integrator of laboratory and LabTECH Environment solutions to plan, design, install, integrate, certify and manage laboratory facilities, supplies and equipment in science, research, healthcare, safety, and education markets. From pipettes to innovative Lab Safety and Virtual Reality (VR), AI, and the Internet of Things (IoT) connected devices, we foresee our growing tech-rich network of industry professionals, industry-specific catalogs, e-commerce capabilities and supply-chain management services to enable our clients to procure and manage a broad mix of products branded, manufactured and supplied by SDVOSB Laboratory, third-party partners, and original equipment manufacturers (OEM’s).

 

We are a proven, full-service, Veteran Led, Laboratory Integrator and Diversity Supplier in this exploding market-sector. The main source of revenue is:

  • Lab Safety Environmental Monitoring and Physical / Cyber Security Integration
  • Equipment sales and installation
  • Lab testing and certification (every 6 months)
  • Equipment management and updating
  • Lab Automation through robotics
  • Collaborative Laboratory communications Systems and Interactive Displays
  • Planning and consulting (to lock everyone else out right at the beginning).

 

It is a huge, hundreds of billions of dollars, market with little Diversity Supplier participation. As an example, Thermo Fisher (TMO), the major player in the market sector, revenue for the twelve months ending September 30, 2021 was $39.059B, a 37.06% increase year-over-year. We are an Authorized Partner, Dealer and Installer with Thermo Fisher. They see our worth and wanted us as their Diversity supplier partner.  This is confirmation of our value in the market.

 

We are a unique Diversity Supplier business called a SDVOSB (Service Disabled, Veteran Owned, Small Business) and SBA HUBZone Business that gets special mandates for procurements on Federal, State and Local Governments, and Non-Profit and For-Profit Businesses across the country.  The Diversity Supplier set-aside mandates total multi-billions of dollars in procurements in some sectors at least 15% of the total spending; this equals billions of dollars!  In the Laboratory marketplace, at the moment, we are the leading SDVOSB & HUBZone supplier! The laboratory market is wide open for us to take our piece. 

 

Our company leadership has invested in a property in a HUBZone (Historically Underutilized Business Zone) for our headquarters in Ft Myers Florida, and has just received this special diversity supplier certification.  The HUBZone diversity supply regulations set an additional, minimum 3% set aside requirement for US Federal government agencies like US Department of Health and Human Services, NIH, CDC, USDA, FDA, etc. Few of these agencies are meeting their HUBZone requirements!  We will use this to expand our market ever further.

 

Achievement & Traction

We are not new, or inexperienced. We have five (5) years of growth in the Diversity Supplier marketplace serving large Federal government agencies – NASA, DoD, the VA, NIH – and States including New York and Florida.  We serve our clients, grow our business, and enhance revenue for our company and our shareholders, while providing a powerful solution to improve the health of our community and the world.

 

We earned the VETCON Patriot Warrior Enterprise Award from New York State, and The Earl G. Reubel Diverse Enterprise of the Year Award.  This is presented to a Diverse Enterprise that has demonstrated its excellence in service, quality and assurance of supply within the healthcare industry. Such enterprise represents a good model for other MWVBEs and may serve as a mentor to them.

Market

The Total Market is Hundreds of Billions of Dollars.

 

“The demand for laboratory products is rising due to advancements in the field of biological and chemical research. The increasing volume of life science research investigations and clinical laboratory tests is boosting the demand for laboratory disposable products. The market is also projected to gain continuous demand for a constant supply of key laboratory devices and equipment among procurement managers in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors,” from Grand View research report https://www.grandviewresearch.com/industry-analysis/laboratory-supply-market

 

And this is the tip of the iceberg.  U.S. Department of Health and Human Service (HHS) spent $1.6 TRILLION, The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) spent $274 BILLION! After the Pandemic debacle, Congress has allocated millions of dollars for the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H) to improve the U.S. government's ability to speed biomedical and health research, and President Biden has signed an Executive Order for Advancing Biotechnology and Biomanufacturing Innovation for a Sustainable, Safe, and Secure American Bioeconomy. These initiatives are exactly where we can play! A portion of the investment will go towards the immediate investigation into our involvement in these advance lab tech and safety programs. They will need SDVOSB and HUBZone too!

Competition

This is best news…the competitors are HUGE, multi-billion-dollar companies that cannot take advantage of the Diversity Supplier set-aside programs without us!  They need us and want us on-board with them.  Additionally, the large government prime contractors like Boeing and Lockheed have the same Diversity Supplier requirements on their contracts...so they, too, need us and want us on-board.

 

Examples of a few of the large laboratory suppliers “competitors” include:

 

Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (already a partner!) 

Thermo Fisher Scientific is an American provisioner of scientific instrumentation, reagents and consumables, and software services. Based in Waltham, Massachusetts,

NYSE: TMO  (NOTE: Thermo Fisher sought us out is a supplier and partner of SDVOSB.  This shows or value to large companies, and the marketplace.)

 

Avantor | VWR

Avantor subsidiary, VWR International is an American company involved in the distribution of research laboratory products, with over 1,200,000 items to more than 250,000 customers. VWR primarily serves the government, biotechnology, life science, education, electronics and pharmaceutical sectors. 

NYSE: AVTR

 

Bio-Rad Laboratories

bio-rad.com

Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. is an American developer and manufacturer of specialized technological products for the life science research and clinical diagnostics markets.

NYSE: BIO

 

Additional:

  • Agilent Technologies Inc.
  • Bruker Corporation
  • Danaher Corporation

 

The direct competition for SDVOSB or HUBZone Laboratory technology-based organizations includes very little to none in the marketplace and with our reputation as being a proud diversity supplier for organizations such as Thermo Fisher and other great organizations this stands us apart in our competition. Our main competitive advantage is the procurement and installation of laboratory equipment, we are on a one-stop, integrator for all the laboratory solutions. 

 

There are no large SDVOSB players in the federal government lab diversity-set-aside market.  The big “beltway bandits” (a funny moniker for the many government contractors around the Washington DC Beltway I-495) are dominate and they have the same requirement for SDVOSB, HUBZone and Diversity Supplier goals and must report to the agencies!  For example, NASA’s Large Primes have obligated $3 Billion to Small Businesses. The market is ripe.

 

Business Model

We are profitable! 

We are an experienced, award-winning, proven, full-service, Veteran Led, Laboratory Integrator and Diversity Supplier in this exploding market-sector.

 

The main source of revenue is:

  • Lab Safety Environmental Monitoring and Physical / Cyber Security Integration
  • Equipment sales and installation
  • Lab testing and certification (every 6 months)
  • Equipment management and updating
  • Lab Automation robotics
  • Collaborative Laboratory Interactive Communications Systems Displays
  • Planning and consulting

Let’s talk Diversity Supply and the Set Asides.

 

What is Supplier Diversity?

Supplier Diversity programs encourage companies and government agencies to procure from businesses owned by traditionally underrepresented or underserved people such as the disabled, veterans, women, people of color, and members of groups that are certified underserved by organizations and government agencies. Diverse-owned, veteran businesses often face hurdles that other companies do not, including problems with access to funding, the ability to network as easily, prejudices, and other issues.

 

Why is Supplier Diversity Important?

These businesses are an essential part of the economy and supporting them also helps to grow the economy and hastens economic recovery.

 

Benefits to the Company Seeking Diverse Suppliers

Perhaps the most significant benefit of having a supplier diversity program is an increase in market share. Companies that earmark 20% and up of their spending for diverse suppliers’ report that 10-15% of their annual sales come from these programs.

 

How do we fit-in?

Our leadership earned the SDVOSB certification because of his service to our Nation and his sacrifice as a Service-Disabled Army Veteran, like his Great Grandfather in World War I and his Grandfather in World War II. He was not born with this, he made the decision to give to his Nation and our Democracy, and earned this Diversity Supply status.

 

In his effort to continue his service to the community, he expanded the business and invested in an underserviced community location to bring advanced technology and jobs to a HUBZone in Florida.  This supports his continuing commitment to the Nation and our citizens.

 

What can we expect?

The Federal Government has a minimum 3% goal each for just Service Disabled, Veteran Owned, Small and HUBZone business.  Agencies including NIH, HHS, and other laboratory-heavy agencies are not meeting this goal! 

 

The agency budgets for research and development are staggering.  All of this funding shown below does not go to laboratories and equipment, but even if 10% is for the laboratory infrastructure, it is a huge number:

 

 

The VA has a 2022 budget in the Billions of dollars.  They are a heavy user of laboratory equipment and services.  With an  increase of 25% of contracting dollars to Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB) and HUBZone, this translates into billions of dollars just from the VA set aside for SDVOSB.  In addition, there is the DoD with a minimum 3-5%+ goal.

 

The laboratory community that receives government funding is vast and diverse.  For fiscal year 2020, here are just a few of multiple billion dollars contracts that require laboratory products and services:

 

 

There are no large SDVOSB or HUBZone players in the federal government lab diversity-set-aside market.   Let's grow quickly and capture our share before others figure this out.
