A Maryville company is beginning the year by winning a large contract in Afghanistan while also projecting another significant growth year.
Critical Mission Support Services (CMSS), a Maryville-based company specializing in providing governments and organizations around the world with mission critical services, was recently awarded a $10 million contract with the Joint Contracting Command, Afghanistan.
This contract serves as a vehicle to provide third country national or U.S. National personnel to support local and national escort duties for the Forward Operating Base (FOB) at Sharana, Afghanistan. The purpose of the contract is to reduce or eliminate the use of U.S. military personnel to escort local nationals that are working on the base providing construction services.
“This is a great opportunity for CMSS to expand our business and our existing footprint in Afghanistan,” said CMSS president Eric Barton. “We’ve had a great start to 2010 and are excited about the direction of the company as we continue to grow and expand throughout the year.”
With this most recent contract awarded, CMSS has already secured 25 percent of its total new business revenue goal for the entire year. As revenues grow, so to does the number of employees. By the end of 2010, CMSS expects to add 77 new staff employees to support its global operations.
