Supreme Group has won a contract from the UK’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) for the provision of aviation fuel and refuelling services to 96 civilian airports worldwide, primarily for the Royal Air Force.
The two year contract, which comes with an optional two year extension, is expected to commence in the near future.
Supreme Group has successfully served the UK armed forces in operations and exercises in Germany, Poland, Norway, Belize, Oman, Bosnia, Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan and Iraq for more than a decade.
Supreme has also been responsible for the worldwide food supply for the MoD in international operations since 1997.
With the new contract Supreme will be offering services to the UK MoD outside of operational deployments for the first time.
"This is an exciting project that reflects the MoD’s continued confidence in our proven ability to deliver rapid and reliable results," said Stephen Orenstein, Supreme Group principal.
"The MoD appointed several companies to provide worldwide aviation fuel services and we are very happy to have been awarded a significant portion of the total business.
"We are proud to be Britain’s trusted partner of choice in providing proven supply chain solutions to the U.K. Military, EU and Commonwealth government departments both within the home countries and across deployments worldwide."
Established in 1957, Supreme Group provides end-to-end supply chain solutions to defense, government, and commercial sector clients around the world.
Supreme’s current clients include the UN, Nato, and leading military forces including the US Department of Defense (DoD) and the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD).
