AAR Selected to Provide Mission-Essential Containers and Shelters for U.S. Department of Defense and Federal Agencies
Industry leader to supply expeditionary platforms for military and humanitarian missions
CADILLAC, Michigan – AAR (NYSE: AIR) has been selected by DLA Troop Support to provide specialized shipping/storage containers, shelters and accessories to be used by the U.S. Department of Defense and federal agencies. The sole-source indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with AAR’s Mobility Systems business includes a two-year base period and three one-year renewal options, with anticipated revenues of $200 million to $250 million over the five-year term and a maximum contract ceiling of $400 million.
The new equipment is critical to U.S. Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corp and Coast Guard missions, as well as federal civilian agencies and humanitarian aid operations. The products will be manufactured by AAR Mobility Systems at its Cadillac, Mich., and Goldsboro, N.C. facilities. Sustainment support for these products will be offered through service depots in Cadillac and Fayetteville, N.C., with field-level repairs conducted at customer locations worldwide.
“We look forward to continuing our strong history of providing quality products to support our troops, government agencies and humanitarian aid operations,” said Mark Platko, General Manager, AAR Mobility Systems. “Our integral palletized shelter and container designs help reduce costs and improve deployment times, while their lightweight aluminum construction helps to reduce fuel consumption. Additional savings are gained as AAR’s mobility products don’t require ancillary equipment to be on- or off-loaded into aircraft.”
AAR, a global leader in aviation services and technology products for commercial and defense customers, will showcase its full range of capabilities at the Dubai Airshow, November 17-21, at Dubai World Central. AAR representatives will be available to brief reporters and bloggers on its Airlift and other services at its stand, #2118.
