Green Bay, WI - November 5, 2014 - Seura, the industry leader in elegant designer mirrors and technology, is now certified as a Woman-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE) through the State of Wisconsin Department of Administration. The certification validates that Seura meets the requirements of being at least 51 percent woman-owned, controlled and managed.
