Akima's Presence at West Point Continues

Akima has held a contract at the U.S. Military Academy (USMA) at West Point since 1999. This past year, following a fierce competition, the contract was awarded to Akima for another five years. The long-running successful performance is attributed to hard work and dedication from an excellent project team, and a satisfied customer.

USMA is the nation's oldest military school and the oldest continuously occupied military post. The prestigious institution hosts numerous special events each year, all supported by the Akima vehicle maintenance and operations team. The company operates and maintains nearly 1,600 passenger, commercial, tactical, and emergency vehicles; and oversees the transportation for the nearly 4,400 cadets and distinguished visitors. Transportation is provided within a 500-mile radius - from Washington, D.C. to Canada.

The Akima West Point team achieved a monumental task when President Barack Obama announced his plans for the war in Afghanistan at the military academy early in December. The vehicle operations team provided transportation for a multitude of dignitaries, members of the national media, and other very important military and civilian visitors, while the maintenance team provided equipment and vehicle operations support. A massive undertaking, to say the least!

All went according to plan. President Obama delivered his address to the nation with 4,400 cadets, along with the full cadre of dignitaries, White House staff and Secret Service agents in attendance. Soon after, Colonel Dan Bruno, Commander, U.S. Army Garrison West Point, wrote to each of the supporting teams saying, "Thanks for enormous efforts over this past week and through the Thanksgiving holiday in preparation for President Obama's national address. I know that many gave up their holiday weekend and time with family and friends to make this event possible for West Point and the nation ... and world. The extraordinary efforts that many accomplished in light of recent events at the White House involving security are significantly noteworthy. Thank you."

Way to go Akima team!!
