Vanquish’s 2015 decision to expand into the U.S. Army Sustainment Command (ASC) Logistics Readiness Center (LRC) market has fueled continuous growth.

As U.S. military forces continued to draw below World War II levels, but still maintain continuous global operational missions, ASC has needed companies like Vanquish to perform critical installation and combat unit maintenance, supply and transportation services to support the combat solider, known as a warfighter.

Specifically, Vanquish provides services for ASC in materiel maintenance on tactical and non-tactical vehicles and equipment, performing large scale supply warehousing; ammunition supply operations; installation and unit property accountability; hazardous materials management; property, freight and unit movement; container yard, railhead and operation of transportation services; and motor pools.

Since 2015, Vanquish has provided support to the U.S. military at Fort Stewart, Georgia; Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah, Georgia; Fort Rucker, Alabama; Eglin Air Force Base, Florida; Fort Bragg, North Carolina; Schofield Barracks, Hawaii; Marine Corps Naval Air Stations in Cherry Point, North Carolina, New River, North Carolina, and Beaufort, South Carolina; and within the Afghanistan combat theater, as well as for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in Seattle, Washington, Portland, Oregon, and Anchorage, Alaska.

“With many of us at Vanquish also military veterans, we understand the critical nature and importance of delivering excellent services and support to our warfighters here in the U.S. to help them prepare for ongoing global deployments,” Vanquish Executive Vice President Greg Guiney said. “Vanquish is very proud and honored to be able to continue serving our nation and armed forces.”

Since 2007, Vanquish has successfully managed and overseen complex, multifaceted programs specializing in intelligence, logistics support, security services, staffing, training, life support and other operational requirements throughout the United States, Middle East, Pacific and Africa. Vanquish is headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee.
