Day & Zimmermann's service to the Department of Defense dates back more than 100 years to the very origins of our company, and they remain one of our most valued customers
PHILADELPHIA (PRWEB) August 21, 2008
"We are thrilled to be part of the Defense News Top 100 for the first time," says Hal Yoh, Chairman and CEO of Day & Zimmerman. "To not only make the list, but enter it at No. 83 is a great testament to the hard work of our many employees around the globe, who have supported the strong growth of our defense business over the last several years."
In 2007 Day & Zimmermann's defense revenue grew both organically and through acquisition. Leading the acquisition activity was securing sole ownership of American Ordnance, which was previously one of the company's joint ventures. The acquisition brought significant new resources and contracts to Day & Zimmermann's munitions operations. In addition to the munitions business, Day & Zimmermann saw significant growth in its architecture, engineering, and construction unit serving the defense market.
"Day & Zimmermann's service to the Department of Defense dates back more than 100 years to the very origins of our company, and they remain one of our most valued customers," says Yoh. "This recognition is an exciting affirmation of our efforts to continually position the company for growth in this ever-evolving industry."
