VT Group Wins Two Army Aviation Materiel Readiness Awards from Army Aviation Association of America

VT Group Dominates the National Army Aviation Association of America Materiel Readiness Awards Along With Three Additional Awards for VT Group Individual Contributors

The pair have been presented with the national Army Aviation Materiel Readiness Award for contributions by an Industry Team and a second award for contributions by a Major Contractor, for exemplary contributions to U.S. Army Materiel Command (AMC), and for logistical support and operational readiness of Army Aviation respectively. The national awards are in addition to three top individual contributor awards given to VT Group employees during the ceremonies.

 

The awards for Major Contractor and Industry Team are two of the Army Aviation Association of North America’s four national Army Aviation Materiel Readiness Awards. The Army Aviation Association of America, also known as Quad A, is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting the United States Army Aviation Soldier, with membership including active duty, reserve component, civilian, industry, retired, affiliated organizations, and friends of Army Aviation.

 

“Receiving these awards from a panel of our peers and customers says a lot about the enormous dedication our people bring to the job every day,” said Chris Taylor, president of VT Group’s technical services division. “VT Group has proudly provided service to the military for over a century, and the personal commitment to getting the job done in support of the War Fighter is in our DNA&#8212from our front-line staff to senior management.”

 

VT Group’s Industry Team award was given in recognition of its contributions to the U.S. Army Materiel Command (AMC)&#8212the Army’s premier provider of materiel readiness including technology, acquisition support, materiel development, logistics power projection, and sustainment&#8212Logistics Support Activity (LOGSA), and the Army Oil Analysis Program (AOAP). The AOAP is a Department of the Army (DA) program supporting a Department of Defense (DOD)-wide effort to detect impending equipment component failures and determine lubricant condition through laboratory evaluation of in-service oil samples. VT Group and Dale Technical Services developed a centralized management plan that was instrumental in the restructuring and standardization of the AOAP, shortening the turnaround on samples and providing the customer with real-time results. Additionally, VT Group’s expertise and extensive equipment maintenance and laboratory training created an environment for increased efficiency and decreased costs; the sum parts of which aided AOAP to work with aviation units in ensuring safe and mission capable aircraft at highest the percentage possible to support the War Fighter.

 

For the award given to a Major Contractor, VT Group was recognized for exceptional performance in support of the Materiel and Operational Readiness of Army Aviation, VT Group’s logistical support services under the Theater Aviation Maintenance Program (TAMP).
