Peerless Technologies Corporation has won the largest contract in its 20-year history, a $187 million effort to support some of the nation’s top warfighting aircraft, including the B-2 stealth bomber, the supersonic B-1, the long-serving B-52 and the hard-hitting A-10 and A-29 attack aircraft.
“We’re excited to expand our long-standing relationship with the Air Force and support these vitally important programs,” said Julie Clark, Peerless senior vice president of Business Analytics, who led the effort to win the work. “By leveraging our highly-rated experience on programs like the F-22 and F-35 and our participation in broad contract vehicles, we have brought new jobs to Peerless and efficient, effective support to the Air Force.”
On this contract, an estimated 200 personnel will provide services from financial, program and logistics management to engineering, technical and security expertise for the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center. Peerless will also support the Foreign Military Sales Attack Systems Program Office serving the Air Force, U.S. Navy and 30 coalition allies.
Peerless begins work on this contract – which runs for approximately five years – in October, with work performed at Wright-Patterson AFB in Ohio, Hill AFB in Utah, Tinker AFB in Oklahoma, and Whiteman AFB in Missouri.
“It’s truly a privilege for Peerless to support the women and men who carry out these missions using the most advanced aircraft and technology in the world,” said Peerless President Michael Bridges. “These systems require cutting-edge technology and a contractor workforce truly dedicated to the Air Force mission to fly, fight and win – and Peerless has become known the past 20 years for supporting both.”
The contract is the latest win for Peerless gained through the company’s participation in the General Services Administration’s One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS) program. Through OASIS, Peerless has won contracts supporting the AFLCMC, Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center, Global Strike Command, and Air Force Research Laboratory, said Clark, who also serves as Peerless OASIS Program Manager.
Also playing a major role in this contract win is the company’s well-regarded and long-standing support for the F-22 Raptor Program Office, led by Kurt Harendza, Peerless senior vice president for Innovation & Research.
“The experience gained supporting a fifth-generation fighter like the F-22 helped our company hone the capabilities needed for this wide-ranging program,” Harendza said. “We’re eager to help support the aircraft in the fighter-bomber portfolio that are vital to our nation’s security”
Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, Peerless will grow to nearly 700 employees nationwide with this win, and over $100 million in annualized sales. Specializing in complex professional services, including systems engineering, cybersecurity, program management, research and development, test and evaluation, and financial, logistics and business management, Peerless has been named one of the fastest-growing firms in the southwest Ohio area. In 2020, Peerless received the James S. Cogswell Outstanding Industrial Security Achievement Award, one of only 61 companies out of more than 12,500 cleared facilities to receive this top Department of Defense honor.
Peerless clients include NASA’s Glenn Research Center in Ohio and Armstrong Flight Research Center in California; the Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center, Air Force Civil Engineer Center, the Air Force Small Business Innovation Research program, the F-35 Joint Program Office, Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane Division, as well as U.S. Strategic Command, U.S. Army, Department of Homeland Security, and other federal agencies.
