Orlando, Fla. (July 30, 2015) — RSS Logistics, the Orlando firm that provides full-spectrum of integrated product support and manufacturing services, recently earned its first prime contract with the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Aviation division.
Alma J. Coronado, president and chief executive officer of RSS Logistics, said DLA is the U.S. military’s integrated materials manager for more than 1.1 million repair parts and operating supply items in support of all U.S. fixed- and rotor-wing aircraft.
“This is a small contract to demonstrate how quickly and reliably we can perform,” Coronado said. “It is our foot in the door, so to speak, and we anticipate many more contracts in the future,” she said.
DLA Aviation operates in 18 stateside locations that support more than 1,900 major U.S. weapon systems, with focused support to 143 major weapon systems, Coronado explained.
Since opening in 2011, the startup engineering and technology company has grown from two principals to 10 employees.
