WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--VT Group U.S., an industry leader in the delivery of customer-critical services to government agencies and U.S. arm of U.K.-based VT Group plc (VTG.L), has been awarded a contract to provide logistics analyses, maintain and update logistics information management systems and provide logistics support related to the operational objectives of the U.S. Army Program Management Office for CH-47 Cargo Helicopters.

Under the terms of the contract, VT Group’s Technical Services Division – formerly known as VT Aepco – will provide contractor services and deliverables through performance of CH-47D and CH-47F logistics fleet management, sustainment, CH-47F product manager, foreign military sales and sustainment support related to all 450 CH-47 cargo helicopters in the fleet.

In addition, VT Group will provide development of training devices along with a full range of training analyses and execution.

“Being awarded the opportunity to continue our work at Redstone Arsenal (Ala.) with the fine service men and women we have come to know and respect over these past 14 years reaffirms that no matter the name on the uniform, it is the people of VT that make us what we are,” said Chris Taylor, president of VT Group’s technical services division. “We look forward to working with the U.S. Army for years to come and extending our expanded service offerings to constantly improve the quality and scope of work we can provide to them.”

VT Group works extensively with the armed forces and civil agencies as well as a limited number of commercial customers to help maintain readiness of key platforms. VT Group collaborates with the customer to determine operational requirements, and then continuously looks for ways to improve efficiency and effectiveness.

Supporting organizations with global operations requires world-class data management systems, in-depth training and – especially – a highly-skilled workforce. VT Group’s readiness and logistics teams are lean, highly responsive and enthusiastic about the customers they serve.

Work under the task order will be completed at AMCOM headquarters in Redstone Arsenal, Ala.
