2019: The Year In Review
2019 was an exciting year for many reasons. PPT Solutions experienced exponential growth, winning its first prime contract, welcoming new team members, and expanding into a new corporate office in Huntsville, AL.
Additionally, we participated in a variety community events, visited our Washington D.C. location, and celebrated the successes the year brought us! Check out our full 2019 year in review below.
The year began on an interesting note, as several of PPT’s employees, primarily in Washington D.C., were impacted by the Government Shutdown. The shutdown lasted from December 22, 2018 to January 25, 2019, making it the longest government shutdown in U.S. history. After just over a month-long shutdown, we were grateful to have our employees return to work in the new year!
In March, PPT Solutions received its first prime contract, as part of the Avion Solutions team, with the U.S. Army in support of the Aviation Engineering Directorate Apache Division. Avion presented PPT as a Direct Awardee on the U.S. Army AMCOM EXPRESS contract vehicle in the Technical domain.
The 5-year effort provides airworthiness, qualification, and engineering support to the AED Apache Division on Redstone Arsenal, as well as to other elements of the Life Cycle Management Center (LCMC) for U.S. Army Apache aircraft.
PPT Solutions was proud to participate in the PGA Champions Tour Pro Am golf event in the Regions Tradition Golf Tournament, held at Greystone Country Club in Birmingham, AL.
PPT’s team consisted of Lance Cooper (AEgis Technologies), Rick Watts (KBRWyle), Doug Clemons (MTSI), Jim Reeb (PPT Solutions), and our guest, Steve Flesch (PGA Pro). The team had a great day of golfing and enjoying the Champions Major tournament.
Additionally, the team was able to watch Spike McRoy, Huntsville PGA Pro, shoot highly respectable rounds of golf over the four-day tournament!
By mid-year, employees from PPT Solutions headquarters made their way to the National Capital Region to visit our D.C. team. Employees and their families gathered in a suite at Nationals Park to watch the Washington Nationals and the Atlanta Braves play an exciting game of baseball. The Braves came out on top, winning 13-9.
In September, PPT Solutions moved its Huntsville headquarters, after having been in the previous office for 13 years. PPT is now located at 360B Quality Circle NW, Suite 210, Huntsville, AL 35806.
Additionally, PPT Solutions hosted its 5th Annual PPT American Heart Association Golf Tournament in the month of September. This year, the event was held at the Huntsville Country Club, and the tournament helped raise $20,000 for the American Heart Association.
PPT Solutions opened the doors to its new office in November at its Open House and 14 Year Ribbon Cutting Celebration. Members of the community, family, friends, partners, and clients attended, making the event a huge success.
Each year, PPT Solutions employees know that November brings the start of hockey season! PPT Solutions is proud to be a season ticket holder for the Huntsville Havoc Hockey Team. Employees have access to these tickets for all home games.
Lastly, PPT Solutions participated in a coat drive in November, benefiting the Downtown Rescue Mission. Employees collected and donated new or slightly used coats to this non-profit organization, ultimately delivering more than seven large bags of coats. Thank you, Team PPT!
To wrap up an incredible year, PPT Solutions held its annual Christmas party in Huntsville and in Washington, D.C. for its staff and families. More than 100 people attended these events. What better way to round out a successful year than gathered together during the holidays? Thank you to our team for joining in on the celebrations!
“We are truly blessed to have such great people at PPT,” said Jim Reeb, PPT Solutions President. “The year went by so quickly, but we take this time to thank everyone who was a part of making this a very memorable year for PPT in so many ways.”
Here is looking forward to 2020!
