HUBZone Success Stories RIDGWAY VALLEY ENTERPRISES Montrose, Colorado Ridgway Valley Enterprises believes that the HUBZone Program has directly impacted its survivability. HUBZone contracts have helped the company keep 45 loyal team members employed through the recent economic downturn. Due to its HUBZone status, the company successfully obtained a Multiple Award Task Order Contract (MATOC) with the National Park Service, which has been the difference between continuing business and shutting its doors. Ridgway was the HUBZone Council’s 2010 HUBZone Corporate Citizen of the Year
