On receiving the award, Lawrence Rominger explained: “MCO-I is proud to accept this distinguished award. It is fitting that in the year of the Pearland Chamber’s recognition, we also celebrated 5-year anniversaries for several of our very first MCO-I associates. We thank you. MCO-I has been honored numerous times in the past with visits by Mayor Tom Reid and the Pearland Chamber ranging from the MCO-I Ribbon Cutting Ceremony in 2015, sharing the ISO Certifications Celebration in 2018, and hosting the highly successful Shop Pearland Vendor Fair in 2019. We look forward to many more successful milestones to share with you, our wonderful Pearland partners in business.”

MCO-I looks forward to continuing its partnership with the Pearland Chambers, as the city has become the fastest growing communities in Texas!

MCO-I has also been independently audited for compliance to ISO 45001:2018, Safety, and was approved to start the formal qualification process for this fourth ISO standard.
