The award shines a spotlight on the companies that consistently deliver high quality products, perform above the grade, and pursue new ways to excel in the support of the United States military.
Hesco Bastion, Inc., following a competitive procurement process, was awarded the Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract for force protection expeditionary barrier systems by the DLA in 2014.
Stephanie Victory, Chief Commercial Officer, Hesco Bastion, Inc. is extremely proud to receive such an accolade;
"We have protected the men and women of the United States military for fifteen years and we are proud to continue supplying the DLA with the protective barriers that soldiers have come to trust and rely on.
This distinction has been achieved by the dedicated efforts of everyone in the Hesco team, based here in the US and the UK; from production, logistics and the administrative staff who always ensure we deliver on time and the highest quality.
All who are involved in supporting this contract are honored by this designation and are proud to support the DLA and our troops."
Hesco is renowned for its ability to meet the military surge requirement of US forces by maximising the flexibility of its production facilities, all of which operate Quality Management Systems certified to ISO 9001, and benefit from an experienced and dedicated workforce. Kevin Lyons, Chief Operations Officer, explains;
"The ability to deliver in full, on time, and to the highest quality standards, is a proud tradition at Hesco, and to do this, we rely on an exceptional workforce as well as strong long-term relationships with raw material and component suppliers.
Our proven processes and systems combine with extensive knowledge and experience to ensure we can quickly increase production output by a multiple of 4 or 5 within a matter of weeks, all without compromising quality and attention to detail."
There will be a ceremony recognizing all winners this fall at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, USA.
