Agility clinches $128m US defence contracts
Huntsville (US), July 11, 2009
Agility Defense & Government Services (DGS), the public sector arm of Kuwait-based Agility, said it has won three vehicle-storage contracts worth $128 million from the US Army Installation Management Command (IMCOM).
Each award has a one-year base and four one-year options, said a statement from DGS, a leading provider of integrated logistics, supply chain management and commodity services.
Under the $42 million privately owned vehicle (POV) storage services-East contract, Agility DGS will act as the prime contractor and will be responsible for storage of deployed soldiers’ vehicles at US Army bases in the eastern United States.
The bases are: Ft. Drum, Ft. Stewart, Ft. Benning, Ft. Polk, Ft. Bragg and Ft. Campbell. The main subcontractor on the POV Storage Services-East contract will be Fayetteville VPC.
Under the $31 million POV Storage Services-Hawaii contract, Agility DGS will act as the prime contractor and will be responsible for storage of deployed soldiers’ vehicles at Schofield Barracks, a US Army installation in Hawaii. The main subcontractor on the POV Storage Services-Hawaii contract will be Dawson Group.
Agility DGS will work as subcontractor on the $55 million POV Storage Services-West contract, which was awarded to a team led by SDV Command Source, a service-disabled veteran-owned small business.
The team includes subcontractors Ready One and Skookum, which are both AbilityOne companies. It will be responsible for storage of deployed soldiers’ vehicles at U.S. Army bases in the western United States: Ft. Hood, Ft. Riley, Ft. Sill, Ft. Carson, Ft. Bliss and Ft. Lewis.
“These awards broaden Agility DGS’s service offerings and mark our first wins with Imcom. Storage of private vehicles is another logistics solution we are able to offer to our customers,” said Dan Mongeon, president and CEO of Agility DGS. The contracts are worth a combined $128 million over five years, he noted.
“These contracts build on the broad capabilities we’re able to provide in the continental United States, where we also manage parts for the US Army at the Tobyhanna Army Depot and personal equipment for the U.S. Marine Corps at 19 bases here and abroad,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
