AMERICAN SYSTEMS Honored as Government Contractor of the Year

AMERICAN SYSTEMS, a leading provider of federal IT and engineering solutions, announced that it was named Government Contactor of the Year in the “greater than $300 million” revenue category at the 12th Annual Greater Washington Government Contractor Awards held Thursday, November 13th.

The Contractor of the Year awards are sponsored by the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce and the Professional Services Council and presented to government contractors in the Greater Washington-area for distinguished financial and operational accomplishments as well as outstanding contributions to the community, employees, government contracting industry and U.S. government in the past year. This marks the second Government Contractor of the Year award for AMERICAN SYSTEMS, which was previously honored in the $75 to $300 million category in 2007.

“We are deeply honored by this award, and gratified that our work in support of our customers was recognized by the industry,” said Peter Smith, AMERICAN SYSTEMS’ President and CEO. “Accolades like this are achieved only through the hard work and innovative spirit of our employee-owners.”

AMERICAN SYSTEMS was also the recipient of its fourth consecutive CARE (Companies As Responsive Employers) award earlier in the day by Northern Virginia Family Service. The CARE Award recognizes Northern Virginia companies that are leaders in providing family-friendly benefits and policies that help their employees meet the challenges of balancing work and life.

“These two awards, taken together, validate our commitment to our employee-owners,” noted Smith. “AMERICAN SYSTEMS continues to excel as an employer of choice and a preferred partner in support of our national priorities.”
