The HUBZone Council consists of small businesses from every socioeconomic class, large businesses, non-profits, and Federal Agencies. The SBA HUBZone Program is unlike any other small business program in that the focus revolves around the development of a community. To the Council, the HUBZone Program is more than just a Federal Contracting Program, it is providing hope to those communities that need it the most.

The 2018 HUBZone Champion award is given to companies that focus on promoting the values and spirit of the HUBZone Program and are involved in community outreach and support. Diana Vass, Sr. Buyer at AstraZeneca led the nomination of Quest for the HUBZone Champion award. Quest and AstraZeneca have been working together to keep AstraZeneca’s workers safe for over 10 years.

Michelle Burnett, Acting Executive Director of the council stated, “The HUBZone Contractors National Council was proud to present Sam Yadav of Quest Safety Products the HUBZone Champion Award at the 2018 National HUBZone Conference.  Reading how Mr. Yadav and the Quest team banded together to secure over 210,000 dollars in supplies and gear for the first respondents during Hurricane Harvey is beyond amazing.

Quest Safety Products moved from Fishers IN to the south side of Indianapolis in January of 2017. That move started nine months earlier with a $750,000 investment that included renovating offices and warehouse space built in the 1950s to meet food-grade clean specifications, moving resources and product, as well as hiring/training additional employees. It also included a year-long process of becoming HUBZone Certified as well as being Certified MBE by the city of Indianapolis and the state of Indiana.

The motivators behind the move to downtown Indianapolis were numerous;

• Strengthening the Indianapolis community through hiring opportunities, promoting from within, and providing internships to nearby students.
• Participating in community outreach and supporting organizations who help others. Some of these efforts include;

o In 2017 Quest donated safety products and assisted Radians, a safety manufacturer and key partner, in donating safety supplies to Indiana Task Force One just after Hurricanes Harvey and Maria.
o 19 years of sponsoring Indianapolis families through United Christmas Service.
o Flanner House of Indianapolis
o 2018 Evansville Police Department Foundation
o Donating safety equipment and supplies to Indiana Sea Cadet Unit

• Working closer to its key customers.
• Helping our customers achieve their SBA business goals.
• Collaborating with other diversified, small businesses to strengthen each business as well as the community as a whole.

When accepting the award, Sam Yadav, CEO of Quest Safety Products thanked AstraZeneca “for the opportunity to prove ourselves, let us in, share ideas, and give us a platform to succeed. It is the employees of Quest Safety, along with our customers, who show how HUBZones work to make local communities and America stronger.”
