The US Marine Corps (USMC) has placed orders with Vanquish Worldwide to provide vehicle maintenance and preventative maintenance services.

Under the contract, Vanquish will inspect, repair and maintain mission-critical flight line utility vehicles at Marine Corps Air Stations (MCAS) in Beaufort, South Carolina; Cherry Point and New River, North Carolina, US.

Vanquish will also provide facility maintenance at the MCAS Cherry Point location.

The contract scope also includes providing labour and services for scheduled and unscheduled inspections and maintenance in support of the 141 flight line utility vehicles comprising Cushman, KIA, Mag International, Mitsubishi, Tiger truck, and Vantage.

The flight line utility vehicles have been designed to provide a critical lifeline between marine aviation logistics squadron (MALS) warehouses and squadron personnel dispersed throughout the flight line.

"Vanquish Worldwide’s goal is not only to ensure the availability and longevity of the vehicles, but also enhance the overall quality of preventative maintenance services provided to the US Marine Corps."

The vehicles will also be used by USMC to deliver parts to squadrons on a continuous basis and return retrograde assets to the MALS warehouses.

Vanquish Worldwide project manager retired master gunnery sergeant Cody Schlomer said that the recent contract would improve on previous contractor performance to help the US Government achieve its goals and provide necessary skills to maintain government vehicles and equipment.

"As we repair and maintain flight line vehicles, Vanquish Worldwide’s goal is not only to ensure the availability and longevity of the vehicles, but also enhance the overall quality of preventative maintenance services provided to the US Marine Corps," Schlomer said.

Vanquish will work for the US Government coast-to-coast, as well as Hawaii under the contract.
