Success Story

Adanta, Inc.

If you need to get connected with business, then you need to connect with Don at the FSBDC.

“Whether I have a detailed technical question or just need to brainstorm a few ideas, I can count on Don to be there for us.” – Cherrie Holloway, Adanta, Inc., Yulee, Florida

Adanta, Inc. is a government contracting business that provides environmental support, program management, remediation and environmental compliance services. They offer a solid team of high-level environmental professionals, including registered geologists, hydrogeologists, certified industrial hygienists, and professional engineers. Adanta’s mission is to solve complex problems with the highest technical expertise in the simplest manner.

When Adanta established a satellite office in the Jacksonville area, they understood the importance of engaging the support of the FSBDC. Their Principal Officer, Cherrie Holloway, contacted the FSBDC Government Contracting Specialist, Don Zavesky, to help networking with area agencies, prime contractors, and small business specialists. The three primary areas that Don has supported Cherrie include pre-proposal business development activities, industry and government networking events, and identifying area business opportunities.

Recently, Adanta enrolled in the new FSBDC Bid Match Service. This is a no-cost service, offered to select FSBDC clients, that identifies and delivers federal, state, local, and worldwide government contracting opportunities relevant to the client’s business. Every day through email alerts, Cherrie receives potential government contracting opportunities, specifically researched for her business. Before submitting a proposal, she has the ability to review each opportunity, make go/no-go decisions, and prepare Adanta’s proposals for government contract awards.

Adanta has successfully received multiple preferred small business certifications including:
• 8(a) Business Development Program Participant
• Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB)
• Economically Disadvantaged Woman-owned Business (EDWOB)
• Department of Transportation –certified Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE)
• DOT-certified State Minority Business
• WBENC-certified Woman-owned Business

The FSBDC is proud to be associated with Cherrie and the entire Adanta team. Since starting to work together, Adanta continues to experience growth and success including receiving multiple contract awards, which have grown in scope and value. Adanta is a great example of how, as a team, we can make a positive impact in the community – one job at a time.
