Haas TCM wins 2 big contacts


WESTTOWN — Haas TCM announced it has two new contracts worth as much as $4.5 billion.

A chemical management services company, Haas TCM won a five-year contract worth as much as $2 billion from the Defense Logistics Agency‘s Defense Supply Center, a division of the Department of Defense based in Richmond, Va.

Haas TCM will be the major contractor for compressed gasses, cylinder supply and maintenance logistics work for the Defense Supply Center.

The contract is part of a larger government effort to take private the supply chain for defense-oriented commodities.

Haas TCM also won a subcontract worth at least $2.5 billion with Science Applications International Corp., a publicly traded technical services company based in San Diego. Science Applications‘ contract is with the Defense Supply Center, and Haas TCM will be a primary subcontractor, explained Thad Fortin, Haas TCM chief executive, reached at the Paris Air Show.

Fortin believes his privately held company will hire 40 to 50 more people to handle the new contracts, five to seven of those at headquarters here in the sourcing, accounting and finance areas.

Haas TCM Executive Vice President Leigh Hayes thinks the company ”may need more space in West Chester,“ where about 50 of the company‘s 300 employees work today. The rest work with clients at offices around the world.

Haas TCM will reach $240 million in sales this year and about $400 million in 2008, the 66 percent revenue boost mainly coming from the two new contracts, Fortin predicted.

Haas TCM offices are off Route 3 just behind the Kirkwood Fitness Center.

Fortin‘s father bought Haas in 1975 when it manufactured and distributed metal treatment chemicals.

The privately held Haas acquired the total chemical management business of Radian International LLC of Austin, Texas, in late 2002, when the company‘s name changed to Haas TCM.

Haas was mostly in the chemical supply and automotive chemical management businesses until it acquired the Radian division, which added aerospace and defense clients to its roster.
