The Office of the Governor and Texas Workforce Commission, along with the Texas Business Alliance, has recognized Lupe Fraga with Tejas Office Products as a recipient of the 2012 State of Texas Small Business Award.

Fraga and Tejas Office Products were nominated by the Houston Minority Supplier Development Council (HMSDC) and validated by the Governor's Small Business Forum committee.

The State of Texas Small Business Award honors a business owner from participating business organizations, who has implemented business skills and practices that has helped them to propel to a level of growth and success, in the midst of this challenging economy.

"Mr. Fraga was selected not only for his outstanding success over the years and strong advocacy for the community and Houston, but also because Tejas Office Products Inc. has been certified for quite some time with HMSDC," Richard Huebner with HMSDC said. "This exemplifies a solid, long-lasting certified minority-owned business that has grown over the years with the Houston Minority Supplier Development Council."

This year Tejas Office Products celebrates 50 years in business.

"I'm truly honored to be recognized with this award," Fraga said. "Each day the Tejas team aims to help a customer, help a community member and help our state. In the end, that's how we all grow. That's what doing business in Texas is all about."

The recognition took place at the Governor's Small Business Forum, hosted by the Texas Business Alliance and partnering organizations, on Saturday, Aug. 18, at the Sugar Land Marriott Town Square.

Since 1962, Tejas Office Products has provided its customers with high quality office products. Its 25,999 square-foot warehouse is centrally located in the Houston Heights area.
