Agility Team Captures $17M Guam Depot Contract
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Agility Defense & Government Services (DGS) and Accent Controls Inc. have won a contract to manage the Defense Distribution Depot Guam, Marianas (DDGM), the two companies announced today.
The five-year contract, worth $17 million, was awarded May 1, 2009 by the Defense Distribution Center, New Cumberland, Pa.
Accent Controls Inc. (ACI), based in Riverside, Mo., will be the prime contractor. ACI is certified by the federal government as a minority, woman-owned, disadvantaged small business. It will provide program management and ISO certifications in quality, safety and environmental protection.
Agility DGS, based in Alexandria, Va., will act as a subcontractor, providing warehousing, distribution and management services.
DDGM is one of 25 U.S. Department of Defense distribution centers worldwide. It provides distribution-support services, including receipt, storage, issue and trans-shipment of supplies for the U.S. military on Guam. The facility provides additional surge-capacity services to all four branches of the military operating under U.S. Pacific Command.
“This contract is a perfect fit for us. Agility DGS has a substantial and growing presence on Guam, and we own and operate the world-class defense distribution depot in Kuwait,” said Dan Mongeon, president and CEO of Agility DGS. “When you combine our local knowledge and depot experience with ACI’s exceptional record of performance for defense customers, you get a team that has a lot to offer DDGM.”
Mary Janiak, president of ACI, said, “Accent Controls is looking forward to working with Agility Defense & Government Services and providing DDGM with smart solutions for distribution services that are on time – every time.”
Agility DGS runs the only contractor-owned, contractor-operated U.S. Department of Defense distribution center worldwide, the Defense Distribution Center, Kuwait Southwest Asia (DDKS).
The DDGM win is part of Agility’s strategic expansion on Guam. Other recent Agility initiatives on Guam include:
– Agility and its joint venture partner, Tristar Transport, acquired the Agat Fuel Terminal on Guam.
– Agility and Tristar won a five-year, $32 million contract to handle storage and distribution of more than 1.2 million barrels of fuel for U.S. forces in the Pacific and Far East.
– A separate Agility-led joint venture, AFH Fuel Services, operates bulk-fuel facilities at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, as well as at U.S. Air Force installations in Japan, South Korea, Turkey, German and Portugal.
Agility also is working with Younex on a plan to provide housing and services for 20,000 temporary workers assigned to infrastructure projects that are associated with the U.S. military buildup on Guam.
