NYS SBDC Procurement of the Year: Oscar Nordstrom of Nordstrom
Oscar Nordstrom, a Service Disabled Veteran, founded Nordstrom Contracting & Consulting, Corp (NCC) in 2004 as a family-owned and operated small business. NCC provides a variety of construction and renovation work for Federal Agencies, including electrical, mechanical, plumbing, interior fit-outs and finish trades. In that time NCC has performed projects totaling more than $10 million and NCC is especially proud that all projects have been completed on or before required completion and within original budget!
NCC’s trademarks are attention to detail, responsiveness, integrity, and genuine pride in its work. Since its inception NCC has grown consistently every year. Mr. Nordstrom says “By aligning the client’s goals with ours, working as a team on each job, we develop and maintain close working relationships with every client. Our past projects, current service contracts and ever-growing portfolio are a testament to the abilities and superior performance of the company.”
Oscar and his family have more than 100 years of combined experience in construction and planning, the result of many projects from high-rise office buildings in New York to custom single family homes in South Carolina. With project experience in the public and private sectors NCC’s company resume includes virtually every major contracting discipline from design to project management to implementation.
Even with his extensive experience, CUNY education and military training Oscar sought the assistance of the Rockland SBDC to help plan the growth and financing of his new business. “An expert knows when to get an expert.” Nordstrom says of his decision to work with Chris Thiesing and Adi Israeli of the Rockland SBDC. Chris and Adi worked with Oscar to fund growth with more than $700,000 in SBA guaranteed financing, assess and review procurement and contracting opportunities resulting in more than $2,000,000 of Federal contracts, provided financial planning assistance to manage and project cash needs supporting rapid growth, and, to assist with identifying supportive programs.
