Why MCE?

Minority Contractor Exchange (MCE) makes it faster, quicker and easier to find companies, workers, suppliers and business opportunities throughout the state.

It has been estimated that over the next 5 years, over $20 billion dollars of new construction will take place in the state of Kentucky. For the minority community to be able to take their rightful place in providing its share of the products and service that will be needed, a platform must be developed that provides exposure and access to information and resources. The Minority Contractor’s Exchange (MCE) is that tool.

MCE is a statewide exchange where minority and mainstream contractors, agencies and organizations can engage, partner, share information and gain greater insight about the construction industry, projects, opportunities, events and services.

While MCE was designed to be user friendly for people in the construction industry, it is a great tool for individuals looking for work, and or specialty companies looking to take advantage of small contracts. Whether you are in healthcare, logistics or horseracing, MCE is the place to come to find or be found.
