Establishing a relationship with a bonding company presents a barrier to most small contractors trying to grow. In response to this obstacle, along with the growing demand by owners to hire more M/W/DBE and veteran owned construction firms, Surety Bond Associates has developed surety support programs and services designed to help smaller contractors gain access to the financial resources necessary to increase bonding capacity and gain access to larger contracts. Our programs also protect the project owners, general contractors and construction managers that hire these firms.
