About the business:
DMC Consultants does consulting, construction, demolition, and environmental work for government clients like the city of Detroit and the state of Michigan. In 2005, Mike Chaudhary, a former employee of past Inner City 100 company FutureNet, started DMC by taking on small contracts to paint residential houses in Detroit. The company has since expanded its offerings and now regularly lands multi-million dollar contracts. DMC is committed to its hometown: as the company expands, it plans to continue to buy vacant lots and spend money to improve inner city Detroit.
This year's Inner City 100 companies have fought off a sluggish economy through a combination of smart investment and savvy strategy. Here's how they are doing it.
