AAR wins AM2 pallet, mat assembly contract
AAR Mobility Systems will provide pallet and mat assemblies to US forces under a $255 million Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity contract announced on 12 July.
The contract, issued by the Defense Logistics Agency Troop Support, covers AM2 pallet and mat assemblies for expeditionary airfields for the US Navy, US Air Force and US Marine Corps.
The contract has a two-year base and three one-year option periods.
Lee Krantz, SVP, AAR Mobility Systems, said: ‘Innovative thinking led us to believe this lightweight rugged aluminium structure used for expeditionary airfields would be a good addition to our product portfolio.
‘While other AAR businesses provide commercial and government aircraft with services and sustainment, this product now allows AAR to say we’re a total solutions provider that has aircraft covered from the ground up.’
