Florida Small Business Owner Highlight
You can’t see it, smell it or touch it, but Florida-based GT ICE has made a successful small business around it.
Based in Ponte Vedra, Fla., GT ICE is a global supplier of gas turbine auxiliary systems, filtration and packaging products, which help condition air through cooling, heating or filtration.
Small Business Majority released a national scientific opinion poll—including oversamples in five states—that found small business owners oppose denying services to LGBT customers based on religious beliefs, rights to free speech or freedom of artistic expression. Further, the poll showed that a majority of small businesses support enacting federal and state laws to protect LGBT individuals from discrimination in places of public accommodation. Small business owners feel that nondiscrimination policies are good for their state’s business climate and their own business’s bottom line.
