KBRwyle Wins Navy Base Operating Support Contract, Grows Core Business

HOUSTON, Oct. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- KBR, Inc. (NYSE: KBR) announced today that its global Government Services business, KBRwyle, has been awarded a contract modification by Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Europe, Africa and Southwest Asia, to provide base operations support services at Isa Air Base in the Kingdom of Bahrain. This is the third option year on the contract, which was originally awarded in June 2014.

KBRwyle will continue to provide a full spectrum of services, including galley services, facility management, emergency and urgent services, small capital projects, base vehicle maintenance and fire emergency services.

This award follows several base operations support service contracts recently awarded to the company, including three major contracts totaling more than $1 billion to support Navy bases in Diego Garcia and Djibouti, and various locations in Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates over the next eight years.

"KBRwyle continues to grow one of its core business areas to provide base life support to military, coalition forces and contractor personnel across the globe," said Byron Bright, KBRwyle President. "These contract awards are a testament to our company's dedication to deliver excellence as we create a home away from home for thousands of military troops." 

KBRwyle has provided integrated lifecycle solutions across logistics, engineering, and sciences for the U.S. Armed Services for more than 50 years. KBRwyle is a top provider of theater-opening logistics support to U.S. military forces, prepositioned stock maintenance to the U.S. Army and Marine Corps, and systems engineering and integration to U.S. Army and Navy aviation.

The contract will be booked into the backlog of unfilled orders for KBR's Government Services business segment in the fourth quarter of 2017.
