In business since 2000, TANTARA has matured into a technically competent, competitive, small business powerhouse in the environmental remediation and construction industry. In fact, TANTARA is a glowing example of a HUBZone enterprise and a Disadvantaged, Women-Owned Business that has absorbed valuable experience through the U.S. SBA’s 8(a) Business Development Program and is now demonstrating an ability to compete in a full and open arena, a tribute to the support and guidance offered by the SBA.
TANTARA’s success is also directly related to its decision to diversify operations primarily within the federal market and broaden its geographic reach. Clients include the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Coast Guard, the U.S. Air Force, the Air National Guard, the U.S. Forestry Service, as well as numerous commercial and institutional clients.
TANTARA most recently was selected as a Nunn-Perry Award Recipient, which recognizes mentor-protege firms that have excelled in the areas of quality, technical development, cost efficiencies, and increased business opportunities for small disadvantaged firms. In 2013, TANTARA was also selected as the "SBA 2013 Region 1 Prime Contractor of the Year," and has also been awarded an ICIC and FORTUNE Magazine "Inner City 100 Award" (rank #42), as well as the Boston Business Journal’s "Pacesetters Select 70 Award" (rank #15).
