From: September 9, 2017
S&K Aerospace, LLC, of Saint Ignatius, MT, has won a $559M contract with the U.S. Air Force (USAF) providing the Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) F-15 Supply Services. S&K Aerospace is leading a team consisting of Parts & Repair Technical Services, Inc. (P.A.R.T.S), and Dalma Tech2. S&K President, Tony Amadeo, upon award notification, noted that “S&K is honored to have been selected for this contract and we look forward to the opportunity to continue to provide outstanding F-15 support to the Royal Saudi Air Force.”
The U.S. Department of Defense said Friday, S&K Aerospace will provide logistics support and deliver consumables for multiple F-15 variants, as well as operate and maintain print plant and print on demand facilities under the contract. The contract award was made on a competitive basis with four offerors. “This is a huge win for the S&K Team and well deserved as many folks from across the enterprise contributed to the proposal effort and subsequent award. We have been supporting the RSAF for over 15 years and this contract will allow us to continue to expand our presence and operations In-Kingdom,” said S&K Aerospace Senior Vice President of Business Development, Daryl Delamarter.
The S&K Team has a long history of supporting RSAF programs including multiple, In-Kingdom efforts. Work will be performed through March 31, 2023, from S&K Aerospace’s Warner Robins, GA Office, as well as S&K Aerospace’s Riyadh and Dhahran offices in Saudi Arabia. Tony Amadeo summed up the effort by stating “The F-15 is a critical weapons system for the RSAF and this contract provides a wide range of logistics support for the aircraft. We will work closely with our teammates, as well as our In-Kingdom partners to exceed contract requirements while working towards Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030.”
S&K Aerospace also won a 15-year, $4.2 billion contract from the Air Force in November 2016 to provide logistics, maintenance, and technical services for 107 Foreign Military Sales (FMS) customers under the Parts and Repair Ordering System V (PROS V) program.
