As part of the order, the company will be responsible for providing installation services such as water delivery services, fitness programmes and equipment maintenance, lodging services, and various recreational services.

Vectrus president and chief executive officer Chuck Prow said: “This is a great win for Vectrus and underscores our ability to rapidly respond anywhere across the world in challenging and austere environments to meet our client’s contingency mission requirements.
