Trilex Solutions is Awarded AMTD Machine Shop Contract

Camarillo, CA and China Lake, CA (November 19, 2020) – Trilex Solutions, a Joint Venture (JV) between Tridant Solutions and Saalex Solutions, has been awarded a $5.8 million small business set-aside contract to provide maintenance and support services for the Applied Manufacturing Technology Division (AMTD) at the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division (NAWCWD) facilities at China Lake, CA.

The AMTD Machine Shop is one of the largest of its kind in the United States. In carrying out the contract, Trilex will perform general maintenance, repair, and refurbishment of machinery; inventory control; packing of materials manufactured at AMTD; transportation of materials and equipment: and installation of Government-owned tools and equipment.

JV team member Saalex has been the incumbent contractor for the AMTD Machine Shop since originally winning the contract award in 2014.

“I am extremely pleased that NAWCWD chose to work with Trilex Solutions allowing Saalex to continue working on the AMTD Machine Shop contract,” said Saalex CEO and President Travis Mack. “This win reaffirms the exemplary degree of service that Saalex brings the Government, the warfighter, and all our customers. We are pleased to be joined by Tridant Solutions for this joint venture effort as they allow us to deliver a wider array of services at the highest level possible.”

During the initial award period from 2014 to present in which Saalex was the primary contractor, the company frequently earned praise from NAWCWD for improving safety, meeting and exceeding schedule deadlines, and implementing cost-saving measures. Saalex helped and continues to help relocate AMTD Machines to various locations throughout the base to new temporary locations as a result of the damage done to the main Machine Shop building by the 2019 Ridgecrest earthquakes. These earthquakes rendered the main Machine Shop too risky to continue use after over 70 years in service. The Trilex team looks forward to continuing to provide the same level of exemplary service that NAWCWD has received from Saalex.
