Technologists, Inc. Completes 50th Project in Afghanistan: Afghan National Army’s National Maintenance Facility
July 31, 2012
Technologists, Inc. (Ti), an international engineering and management consulting company that works primarily in challenging and remote environments, has completed its 50th project in Afghanistan. The milestone project is the Afghan National Army’s National Maintenance Facility, which Ti delivered to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) in late July 2012. The facility is a central repair location for ANA vehicles, weapons, and communications equipment that uses the latest technology and industry best practices to return vitally needed equipment to the field as quickly as possible.
“When Ti began operations in Afghanistan in 2004, I had no idea that we would complete five projects there, let alone 50,” said Sayed Aziz Azimi, Ti’s founder and CEO. “I am grateful that clients like the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and USAID have repeatedly entrusted Ti with some of their most challenging projects. And I am extremely proud that the work our company has done—and continues to do—helps make the Afghan people more secure and prosperous.”
Ti’s portfolio of 50 completed projects includes a full range of vertical and horizontal construction. In the past two months Ti has completed seven projects valued at nearly $164 million. The company currently has 13 projects valued at $168 million underway in Afghanistan for USACE and other clients, including development projects that provide local services that improve stability and enhance the legitimacy of the Afghan government. With more than 800 employees—the vast majority of them Afghan professionals—Ti is Afghanistan’s largest engineering services company, dedicated to both the building of projects and the sustained growth of its engineering and construction community.
