USS Frank Cable Dry Dock

From attack aircraft to transports, and through all logistical platforms, 55 Industries delivers quality on time solutions for spare parts and logistics problems. Our comprehensive platform utilizes our small business partners, purchasing specialists, IDPO and IDIQ managers, direct DLA sources, and mil spec packagers.

With our OEM partners and a vast array of suppliers, 55 Industries can develop lines of refreshed obsolescent parts, as well as recreate original parts in the modern era. Our services keep older aircraft, ships and land vehicles in an evergreen state to expand fleet readiness and satisfy constrained budgets.

We provide quick response when the supply chain is stretched and parts are needed in theater for the mission. We identify trends and regularly engage our warfighters to understand their immediate and future needs.  This teamwork creates a proactive, successful infrastructure as opposed to reactionary, inefficient previous supply chain methods.

Our Team is comprised of ex-warfighters which enables us to understand the needs of the personnel we support. Whether it be protective glass wear, head wear, goggles, protective vests, Kevlar products, accessories, clothing, or boots, we have a never ending commitment to our fighting men and women. We stand proudly with them in their fight for freedom and democracy across the globe.

This success is only possible through long-term forged relationships with manufacturers, machine shops, distributors, and surplus vendors, all working in tandem to set the standard in supply chain efficiency. Continuous improvement is our mantra, and 55 Industries is constantly deploying new technologies, formalizing obsolescence programs, and adding new products and capabilities to be a force multiplier for our end clients.
