September 25, 2018

CALGARY, Alberta--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 25, 2018--As a leading provider of high value logistics and support to Canadian Defence for more than 35 years, Peraton recently completed its Calgary facility operations expansion and modernization. The new facility will enable broader support of Canada’s CF-18 fighter fleet and position the company for future growth on fighter platforms and programs.

Peraton’s Calgary facility, at 76,000-plus square feet, now with an engineering lab for operational design and development, is a “one-stop-shop” for integrated logistics support. The site provides full life-cycle supply chain management for the largest allocation of government-owned materiel in Canada.

“With our proven record of efficiency, having reduced costs for the CF-18 fleet, we are well equipped and ready to scale to support Canada’s future fighter program,” said Gus Bontzos, president, Defence and Electronic Warfare sector. “We are also proud partners in spurring enterprise development, with 60 percent of our supplier base in Canada comprised primarily of small to medium sized businesses.”

Peraton’s investment is helping to propel Calgary’s economic growth, sparking renewed growth in specialized high-tech jobs. With its development of a platform-agnostic, scalable sustainment model that can optimize program performance for any platform – air, land, or sea, the Peraton model represents the next generation of cooperative military advancement.
