New Breed has received another contract from Boeing to operate a distribution and supply support program.
New Breed Logistics, Inc., has announced that they have received a contract from Boeing Integrated Defense Systems to operate a distribution and supply support program at Boeing's Global Services & Support site in San Antonio, Texas. The center is a maintenance, modification and upgrade facility for in-service Department of Defense tanker and transport aircraft including the KC-135 Stratotanker, the KC-10 Extender, C-17 Globemaster III, and C-130 Hercules.
New Breed, which was awarded the five-year contract through open competition, has begun phasing in its service and parts-support at the 99,000-square-feet operations. This agreement represents a continuation, as well as an expansion, of the relationship between New Breed and The Boeing Company.
New Breed currently supports several of Boeing's civilian and defense aviation programs, including the 787 Dreamliner; the Boeing Commercial Airplanes spare parts program for eastern North America, and South and Central Americas; the F/A-18 Integrated Readiness Support Teaming, or FIRST, program; and, spares programs for the H-46 rotorcraft, the Harrier Integrated Supply Support (HISS) program, Japan and Italy KC-767 tankers, Korean F-15s, the C-17 and the F-22. Additionally, the company provides parts kitting and line-side delivery services for new-build military rotorcraft programs at Boeing's Philadelphia manufacturing site that include the Chinook and V-22 Osprey.
