HAAS TCM SIGNS AGREEMENT TO SUPPORT SAIC ON PROGRAM TO PROVIDE THE U.S. GOVERNMENT SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT SERVICES FOR CHEMICALS, PACKAGED PETROLEUM, OILS, LUBRICANTS


(West Chester, PA, June 20, 2007) -- Haas TCM announced it has signed a subcontract with Science Applications International Corporation [NYSE: SAI] to support SAIC’s recently awarded prime contract it won from the Defense Supply Center – Richmond, Va., (DSCR) for privatization of chemicals and packaged petroleum, oils and lubricants (POLs).

The firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity subcontract has a five-year base term and one five-year option period consistent with SAIC’s prime contract. The prime contract has a ceiling value of $6.2 billion, if the customer exercises all options.

Both the subcontract and the prime contract result from a government initiative to privatize the supply of chemicals and POLs to the U.S. warfighter and other government operations. SAIC will provide services formerly covered by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) including comprehensive management of chemicals and POLs to include demand forecasting, order processing, procurement, inventory management, quality control, environmental compliance, hazardous materials management, storage, packaging, worldwide distribution, obsolescence management, data management and customer support services. Haas TCM is SAIC’s primary subcontractor in this effort and will provide a wide range of products and logistics services.

The goal of this performance-based program is to improve overall product support by decreasing cycle times and increasing the availability of chemicals and POLs to DLA customers at a lower cost of ownership.

Using its chemical distribution infrastructure, JIT work processes and tcmIS®, its state-of-the-art chemical lifecycle management platform, Haas TCM will provide to SAIC and the U.S. Government the service it has provided to its commercial aerospace and defense industry customers.

“We have learned through collaboration with our customers in the aerospace and defense industries how to better manage the unique chemical-related business and environmental stewardship challenges facing these industries”, said Thad Fortin, Chief Executive Officer of Haas TCM. “We are thrilled to work with SAIC to deliver this kind of value to the warfighter and the U.S. government”, adds Fortin.

Haas TCM is headquartered in West Chester, Pa, with about 350 employees, annual revenues of $240 million and operations on four continents. Haas TCM currently provides chemical lifecycle management services to customers in the automotive, aerospace, electronics, semiconductors, energy, metalworking, transportation, food/beverage and heavy equipment manufacturing industries.
