LOCAL COMPANY EARNS MINORITY BUSINESS OF THE YEAR AWARD
Las Vegas and Salt Lake City
(May 28, 2013) – Codale Energy Services & Supply of Las Vegas (an affiliate company of Codale Electric Supply, headquartered in Salt Lake City), was named “Minority Business of the Year” by the Nevada Minority Supplier Development Council (NvMSDC).
Recognized for its “outstanding business endeavors,” Codale Energy Services & Supply (ESS) was nominated by local utility provider NV Energy and beat out five other companies for the award. The award was presented, among others, at NvMSDC’s 18th Annual Excellence Awards Ceremony, held on May 18 at the Paris Hotel Las Vegas.
“We are grateful to be recognized by NvMSDC for our efforts and we hope to remain an example of hard work and great service for years to come,” said Codale ESS president Oscar Aliaga.
Formerly a branch of Salt Lake City-based Codale Electric Supply
since 2004, Codale ESS became its own entity in 2010 under the direction of Aliaga, who was born in Peru and moved to the United States with his family at age four.
“We at Codale recognized a unique opportunity in the Las Vegas area to focus on energy-efficient products, and also to participate in building a more diverse marketplace within the industries we serve,” says Aliaga. Codale ESS serves residential, commercial and industrial markets, among others, and is known for their sizeable inventory, including the latest energy-efficient technologies, as well as their superior product expertise and customer service.
In addition to the coveted Minority Business of the Year award, Aliaga received an individual award for community volunteer of the year for the significant hours of service that he and his company gave in helping NvMSDC. Codale ESS sponsored various services around NvMSDC’s recent construction and renovation projects, including lighting design for their new training center, contract electrical for their extensive office renovation, and general labor help with project cleanup.
“I can’t believe it, I had no idea,” Aliaga said of the surprise award. “I do whatever I can to help the council and staff because I love this organization; it has meant so much to me and other MBEs [Minority Business Enterprises].”
