RICHMOND, VIRGINIA – On March 8th 2016, Pioneer Industries, Inc., has received a contract to supply nine (9) Function Deck Assemblies worth a total of more than $400,000. These assemblies are critical for the landing platform/dock (LPD), an amphibious warfare ship, that embarks, transports, and landselements of a landing force for expeditionary warfare missions. The Department of Defense has been unsuccessfully attempting to procure this material since February 2015 via other resellers.
To date, Pioneer is the only supplier in the country to successfully supply these Functional Deck Assemblies to the DoD’s Defense Logistics Agency (DLA). Pioneer’s offer was submitted in late January and worked with the buying command to expedite the evaluation process. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in a few months.
