GENCO awarded $38.8 million contract by Defense Logistics Agency to support Naval operations
DLA distribution site to process over 100,000 annual transactions in Bahrain, CENTCOM theater.
GENCO, a provider of lifecycle logistics services, said today that its wholly owned subsidiary, GENCO Infrastructure Solutions (GIS), won a one-year contract with the Pentagon's Defense Logistics Agency to support U.S. Navy operations in Bahrain and the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) theater. CENTCOM's area of responsibility consists of 20 countries in the Middle East and Central Asia.
The one-year, fixed-price contract has four one-year options. If all four of those options are used, the contract will equal $38.8 million.
The 330,000 square-foot operation in Bahrain consists of two side-by-side facilities that will process over 100,000 transactions per year for all service branches, GIS said. The division will also manage a Navy materials processing center for naval fleet support. Full operations are scheduled to begin in September, GIS said.
GIS, which has operated in Kuwait, brings regional experience, fully trained teams, and knowledge in managing local nationals and "third-country nationals" (or individuals who are neither citizens of the United States nor Bahrain), it said in a statement.
"As our first overseas prime contract, the DLA distribution operation in Bahrain builds on our previous success and provides an opportunity to support the Navy's 5th Fleet, a long-standing, forward-deployed, strategic capability and other Army and Air Force units in the region," John McGonigle, president, GENCO Infrastructure Solutions, said in the statement.
GIS's customers have included the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Marine Corps, the General Services Administration, and the U.S. Transportation Command. GENCO is headquartered in Pittsburgh.More articles by DC Velocity Staff
