ALL ABOUT US

Protectque USA Inc (Veteran-owned) long time contractor of The Department of Veteran Affairs and has built upon its history of reliable performance to assist the Veteran Affairs Administration with PPE during this pandemic. Protectque USA Inc has developed relationships with multiple PPE manufactures like 3M to support the Veterans Affairs Administration.


Protectque USA Inc and through its sister company, has worked for multiple large firms over the past few years (Kirlin Builders, a $145M annual revenue company, part of the Kirlin Group / Gilbane Federal, a $320M annual revenue company, part of Gilbane, Inc.). In terms of financials, it made more sense to work directly for the firms instead of as a consultant. During that time, we worked and built relationships with MEDDCOM (US ARMY Medical Command) and AFMS (Air Force Medical Service), in addition to servicing the Department of Human Health Services. All of these organizations utilized the US Army Corps of Engineers to execute their contracts through the MRR (Medical Repair/Renovation) program. This program allowed me to build larger relationships with all of the DOD Hospitals, Dental Clinics, Medical Clinic and Vet Clinics throughout the world for their construction and medical equipment/furnishing needs.


Through the experience in the medical construction arena for the federal government, we were able to utilize my construction experience and veteran status to gain access to the Department of Veteran Affairs. The Department of Veteran Affairs has only been executing contracts with Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) or Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB) for their initial contracting. The use of my VOSB set aside designation allowed me to further gain more access and opportunities to the VA, especially with my vast medical construction experience.
