CIBACS Business Partners are companies in the local community with an interest in the education of our students. These may include small companies owned or operated by parents of CIBACS students, large national or international corporations with community partnership programs, or any other business interests. Business Partners are critical to the success of the CIBACS program. Without them, the Gateway and OnRamp simulations would not be possible.

We want to thank the following organizations for participating as Business Partners with CIBACS and hope they find the relationship as important as we do.

The Hamboard story revolves around a family of 7 surfers from Huntington Beach, California.  Over the years of living close to the beach the 5 brothers would grow to love the ocean and become Lifeguards or Junior Lifeguards. With no intentions of designing a new style of skateboards or making a product, they simply wanted to make something that felt like they were riding a surfboard when they rode it. Having a really fun skateboard to ride when the surf was flat became a family project. It only took them 8 years or so to get it right. The result is a HAMBOARD, which has a phenomenal similarity to surfing.

Missions: “As a socially responsible company, Sunshine Makers, Inc. is committed to being the worldwide market leader, providing high quality, environmentally safer cleaning products.”

The Simple Green® story began over thirty years ago, long before “environmentally friendly” products were mandated by law. Bruce FaBrizio and his father developed a safer alternative to the toxic cleaners then being used to remove tannic acid, a by-product of coffee roasting, from roasting machinery. It took three years to perfect the biodegradable, not-toxic, non-flammable, non-abrasive formula. After its initial success, Bruce began selling Simple Green to automotive and industrial customers in 55-gallon drums; which he delivered in his van, for use as a cleaner on equipment and floors.
