SBA’s Resource Partners help woman-owned business NPI Services to grow and navigate contracting regulations

NPI Services, Inc. located in Costa Mesa, California is an electronics manufacturing services company with 14 employees that provides assembly and engineering solutions to R&D engineering including building prototypes, pilot runs and low volume production.  Founded in 1998 by Judy Greenspon, this woman-owned small business has grown from occupying a 200 sq. ft. office 20 years ago to a 7880 sq. ft. newly designed cyber-secure space with professional offices, an electronics lab and assembly area.  Steady growth through sales and marketing efforts coupled with a demand for more engineering services allowed for the company to investment in quality industry certifications. Today NPI supports a diverse customer base that encompasses industries such as: Mil-Aerospace, Space, Medical Device, Telecommunications, Energy and Industrial markets. 

Greenspon utilized SBA services by attending Resource Partner workshops and receiving one-on-one counseling. Throughout her business growth she sought the skills and knowledge of SCORE mentors who helped her navigate the regulations of defense contracts and who provided guidance and expertise on branding, sales, marketing, networking and STEM philanthropy.  She is also became a member of the very first Orange County SCORE CEO Forum, where C-level executives address strategic issues in a peer group setting. Greenspon also found value in SBA’s procurement matchmaking conferences, paving the way to additional government contracts.  

Greenspon is passionate about giving to the community and has created a company culture that embraces philanthropy. Her volunteering path began early on as a candy-striper and Girl Scout and that passion continued into adulthood with three years of service as a Peace Corps Volunteer in a developing country.  Her charitable endeavors continue today through many organizations such as the National Peace Corps Association, Big Brothers and Sisters, Girl Scouts of Orange County, Women Helping Women and others.  NPI Services, Inc. maintains that same culture of giving as has been demonstrated when the company introduced solar lanterns to a remote Mayan village in Belize, supported Philippine typhoon victims and assisted with Nepal earthquake recovery efforts.  Greenspon supports current and future scientists in local STEM education as a member of the UCI Engineering Council, a board member of the Orange County ARCS Foundation and by donations to STEM organizations such as AISS Foundation, Science@OC and the National ARCS Foundation.
