Case Study:

Fort Bliss

Maintaining the Army’s Largest Installation for More Than 15 Years

The US Army Garrison at Fort Bliss, Texas, is the largest installation in FORSCOM (United States Army Forces Command) and is the site of America’s Tank Division. The Army post is also home to nearly 40,000 active-duty military personnel and contains a number of state-of-the-art training facilities.

 

Situation

In 2007, Fort Bliss leadership sought an AbilityOne provider that could provide a broad range of facilities maintenance services and lower their Total Facilities Management costs. 

Solution

As an AbilityOne provider, PRIDE Industries hires, trains, and continuously supports employees with declared disabilities, giving them valuable job skills and an independent life. The company also has a long history of serving military customers, and has the facilities management expertise needed to handle every facet of operations support at a military installation. These traits made PRIDE Industries a natural fit for the work at Fort Bliss.
