Monday, 25 November 2013
WOOD DALE, Illinois - AAR (NYSE: AIR) announced today that its contract to support the U.S. Army Medical Material Center in Southwest Asia, located at Camp As Sayliyah in Qatar, has been extended for a second year. 

Under the renewed contract, AAR will continue to provide inventory management for medical supplies used by the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. 
The initial program award, announced in January 2013, marked the first time AAR managed inventories of medical supplies for a defense customer.

Previously, the company’s supply-chain contracts focused on inventory and logistics for various aircraft platforms, engines and ground equipment. 
John Holmes, AAR’s Aviation Services group vice president – aviation supply chain, said: “This is an important program that provides critical support for those who serve in the armed forces and put themselves in harm’s way.

“We greatly appreciate the confidence the U.S. Army has shown in us by renewing this program.”
