(From release) Geocent is growing again – this time, straight up. A new sector is making moves to gain a share of the expanding and competitive Engineering Science market.
Beginning in July, all of Geocent’s engineering and aerospace support work has been collected under the banner of our new Engineering Services Sector, headquartered in Huntsville, AL.
Heading up the new sector is Mike Ogles, former Vice-President of Aerospace Systems at Teledyne Brown Engineering (TBE), who joined Geocent as Senior Vice-President of the Engineering Services Sector. Dr. Frank Fogle also joined the company as Director of Huntsville operations.
Geocent Chief Executive Officer Bobby Savoie said, “As part of our continued growth into a world-class technology company, we are launching a new Engineering Services Sector in Huntsville, where we will concentrate the leadership of our aerospace and advanced engineering efforts. Mike brings twenty-five years of experience in the field, and we are confident that the combination of Mike and Frank, along with our existing staff and new contracts we have recently won in the Huntsville will open new doors for Geocent’s existing growth.” In addition to Ogles and Fogle, Greg Cromer will transition to the Engineering Services Sector while continuing to run Geocent operations in New Orleans.
“Locating our office in Huntsville puts us closer to some of our new aerospace and engineering partners and customers,” adds Savoie.
In addition to our current work in Huntsville, Geocent is also proud to announce that it was awarded one of seven Small Business prime contracts from the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic to provide software development, engineering and technical services to support Core Infrastructure and Application Service Integration (CASI) requirements. CASI is an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity, task-order contract with a total ceiling of $249.6 Million over 3 years if all options are exercised. It represents Geocent’s first large prime contract award from SPAWAR. Savoie said, “This is a major breakthrough that can help position Geocent for our next phase of growth. This has the potential to take our company to a whole new level.” The CASI contract will house a broad base of technology work similar to the work being performed at Redstone Arsenal.
