EER Ltd. will manage government scrap tire and recycling program
EER Ltd. will manage scrap tire recycling and retreadable casings logistics for all aviation tires removed from United States Air Force and Army aircraft in the contiguous 48 states.
The company will manage the program in support of the prime contractor, Michelin Aircraft Tire Company LLC, and its principal logistics and warehousing subcontractor, Lockheed Martin.
The U.S. Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) awarded a $368 million performance-based logistics contract to Michelin on Jan. 3 to privatize the production and logistics for its aircraft tires. With
options exercised, the contract is valued at more than $700 million over 10 years.
EER, as a subcontractor to Lockeed Martin, will collect and recycle all scrap tires, and handle collection and logistics management of all retreadable casings.
"EER Ltd. will use its considerable experience gained as a scrap tire consultant and project developer -- and its experience gained from providing scrap tire management and recycling services to 25 U.S. military bases from the Canadian border to southern Virginia under an existing contract with the DLA -- to provide comprehensive and world-class services to the 161 aviation customers included in this contact," says Anne Evans, EER's owner and CEO.
With the help of its wholly-owned subsidiary, Tire Removal Services Inc., EER will manage its responsibilities from a national command center to be established in east central Connecticut in the next few months. A trained staff will coordinate activities 24/7 using state-of-the-art systems that include EER's Web-based management software, STMS.
In turn, EER will contract with regional recyclers and haulers with necessary experience and licensing to build a national network to meet the military's requirements. EER's activities will be coordinated with
Lockheed Martin's lifetime support command center in Moorestown, N.J.
