Oklahoma City-based Delaware Resource Group has secured its first contract with the U.S. Navy.
DRG has signed a subcontract with Boeing Defense, Space and Security to provide maintenance and instructor services on six different Navy aircraft.
“This contract award is a major milestone for the company,” CEO Phil G. Busey said.
“As an Oklahoma City-based defense contractor, we are proud to support our war fighters and contribute to Oklahoma's economy as a global entity.”
The five-year contract, which began Dec. 1, means the company will add more than 125 employees at Navy air stations in Florida, Washington and Hawaii.
It also will expand operations at its Oklahoma City headquarters to fulfill contract requirements.
Delaware Resource Group, a family-owned company founded in 2002, employs more than 700 people around the world.
“This new contract helps us achieve our aggressive growth strategy by adding support for additional military platforms, as well as expanding our existing relationship with Boeing,” said Brian Busey, chief operating officer.
Brian Busey will oversee the company's transition to working with the Navy. The company primarily has served the U.S. Air Force and its allies.
