The current contract backlog is in excess of $200K Long time customers depend on the ability of this company to meet mil-spec requirements and critical delivery timelines. A large percentage of the company's revenue is not subject to competitive bid contract requirements and is awarded via unsolicited, recurring purchase orders with confirmation of pricing and delivery. The company is located in a freeway convenient, light duty industrial park, occupying 2,562 square feet at a monthly lease rate of $2,650.00.
