Three Tepa Companies were named the combined 2017 8(a) Business Development Program Company of the Year by the Small Business Administration (SBA), Kansas City District. Medvolt, Tehama and Tukuh Technologies were honored with the award after securing a combined $100 million-plus worth of federal contracts during fiscal year 2016 with the support of the SBA.                                    

The three Tepa Companies were chosen from more than 40 8(a) companies across 89 counties in Missouri and Kansas.

Tepa is truly an American success story. I admire the courage of [the Tepa leaders] for their determination to succeed.
— SBA Kansas City District Director Malcolm Richards
We are honored to be recognized by the Kansas City SBA as its 8(a) Business Development Program Company of the Year. Its partnership has been invaluable in helping us build the kind of business foundation that will not only spur continued growth in Kansas City but also for the Tepa Companies as a whole and Tepa’s Tribe, the Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians.
— Matt Metcalf, Chief Strategy Officer for the Tepa Companies
