BOWIE, Md. (August 20, 2010)—The MIL Corporation (MIL), a company that provides the Federal government with financial, quality assurance, and information technology-management services, is celebrating its 30th anniversary this month.
Established in 1980, MIL began as a small business that signed its first contracts with the U.S. Department of Energy. Since then, the organization has successfully competed for multi-year, multi-million dollar contracts with 17 Federal agencies, including the U.S. Departments of the Navy, Commerce, State, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, and Agriculture.
MIL was founded by its current president, Maurice (Butch) I. Long, and
executive vice president James C. McIntyre. Headquartered in Bowie, Long heads
up the technical and project management of all corporate research and analysis
projects while McIntyre is responsible for the overall management, technical direction, and contract administrations for MIL.
"When Jim and I left our jobs back in 1980 to start MIL, we wanted to create a company that would become a best value government contractor, where people make the difference" said Long. "I can say with great confidence that our company is exactly what we envisioned. We are excited to be a competitive organization that provides innovative solutions for the Federal government."
MIL currently employs over 450 professionals throughout Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina, California, and Colorado.
MIL continues to expand its footprint through a new C4I division, which ventured into the communications, command, and control business providing design engineering, integration, and life cycle support on all DoD based C4I systems. Based in Patuxent River, Md., the group currently supports NAVAIR, SOCOM, and other DoD based organizations.
"We couldn't have had the success MIL has experienced without our greatest asset-our people," said McIntyre. "We truly value our employees. It's their hard work and dedication that got us where we are today-they are the ones who are continuously exceeding our customer's expectations."
MIL has annual revenues above $70 million. Its staff continues to work on many projects of national importance for its early customers as well as new agencies.
