MCDP Spotlight: The PDI Group
Monday, August 24, 2015
Ten years ago Pacific Dynasty International, Inc. now known as PDI Group, started as an LED gadget sales company. Since then, it has grown in capacity from an LED supplier and authorized distributor to installing lighting and erecting steel on infrastructure projects.
Since installing lighting and erecting steel required bonding, PDI sought assistance from the Gulf Region Small Business Transportation Resource Center (SBTRC). Henry Yiu with PDI says that participating in the 2015 Gulf Region U.S. DOT Women in Transportation Bonding and Access to Capital Program took the business to a different level. This hands-on educational opportunity was part of the SFAA/ U.S. DOT Bonding Education Program.
Prior to participating in the program, PDI had no bonding capacity. PDI learned about the bonding process step by step and how to increase its business capacity. As a result, PDI was able to obtain $2 million in aggregate bonding capacity. The program helped facilitate and build a great relationship with the surety agency that the SBTRC provided them with in the program. Having obtained the essential bonding capacity, PDI has been able to pursue business at a different level and bonding has opened many doors for them.
Public sector clients PDI has received procurement opportunities with include Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport and the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth, TX.
