Arlington, Va.

 

Technologists, Inc. (Ti), an international engineering, construction, and management consulting company that works primarily in challenging and remote environments, has begun direct sales of construction materials and manufactured products to a variety of customers in Afghanistan. The products are made and marketed by the company’s Production and Manufacturing Unit (PMU).

 

Among Ti’s main products are concrete blocks (CMU), concrete, cement, crushed stone, and asphalt, as well as metal studs, windows, and doors; stairways and shelving systems; and lighting poles. Ti also sells concrete traffic-control and force-protection barriers, and converts Conex shipping containers into field offices, dining and sleeping quarters, and security posts.

 

“Ti has been making quality products for its own construction projects for years,” said Thomas H. Magness, chief operating officer, “and it's a logical next step for us to market these materials to other builders. We are especially pleased that one of our first customers is using Ti’s concrete blocks to build a new upscale hotel in Kabul.”

 

Among the key advantages of buying from Ti Mr. Magness cited were local production, reliable scheduled delivery, USACE-certified quality, and competitive pricing.

Since entering Afghanistan in 2004, Ti has completed more than 50 projects valued at close to $300 million for a variety of military and civilian clients. An additional 16 projects valued at $256.6 million are currently underway.

 

Ti’s project portfolio ranges from single buildings and roads to complex facilities with multiple buildings plus all associated infrastructure—water and wastewater systems, heating, electrical power generation and distribution, communications and Internet systems, trash collection, roads and parking areas, and interior and perimeter security systems.
