TWF Enterprise

BACKGROUND: 

TWF Enterprise is a Minority Owned Small Business CNC manufacturing machine shop based in San Jose. The company specializes in machining, fabrication, welding and assembly of high quality parts from a wide range of metals and plastics for the use in aviation and marine hardware, medical devices, consumer electronics and more. From design to the production of parts, this business prides itself on quality management and improving their customers’ satisfaction.

CHALLENGES:

Phuoc Luong, owner and operator of TWF Enterprise, had experience selling to the government under another company several years ago but needed assistance re-entering the government marketplace as TWF Enterprise. Sam Luong, the sales representative with TWF Enterprise, sought out expert guidance on the application process for various certifications, how to find and properly respond to available bids, and how to interpret compliance regulations.

ACTIONS:

A Norcal PTAC Procurement Specialist walked Sam through the System for Award Management (SAM) registration process, provided guidance on the Joint Certification Program (JCP) application, reviewed TWF Enterprise’s Statement of Qualifications and Cyber Security Plan, and advised on multiple solicitation responses. In addition, Sam attended a few Norcal PTAC webinars and the CASCADE training modules. The company is compliant with the MIL-I-45208 quality control inspection system and is moving forward to register with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001-2015.

RESULTS:

With all the certifications in place and a revised Statement of Qualifications, TWF Enterprise won five DLA contract awards for over $9500. They plan to continue monitoring and responding to government contracting opportunities and seek Norcal PTAC’s support when needed. Page 1
