Tampa company wins Department of Defense contract
February 26, 2014 by Mark
The Defense Logistics Agency, part of the Department of Defense, has awarded Tampa‘s Federal Contracts Corp. a contract worth as much as $157m.
The contract is for commercial environmental equipment, and is one of nine contracts the agency issued regarding a particular solicitation.
The contract specifies that the environmental equipment will already be a part of the company’s product line, and that the companies receiving the award compete against one another to provide the equipment. The contract runs for five years and has a completion date of February 6, 2019, with work being performed in Iowa as well as Florida. Users include the Navy, Marine Corps, Army, and Air Force, along with federal civilian agencies.
Federal Contract Corp. is headed by Clark Ricke, a disabled veteran. Founded in 2003, it is a small business located in Tampa that handles sales, rental, and leasing of heavy equipment for all types of companies. It has a network of dealers nationwide, so there is assistance available everywhere in case of emergencies, breakdowns, or situations where unexpected work and additional equipment is needed. Federal Contract Corp. is able to supply everything from water pumps to off-road trucks to light towers to generators.
Federal Contract Corp. could use this award as an example of its abilities, and work with brochure printers to create a mailer to send to other agencies for consideration.
