Rockford, IL (August 14, 2017) – SupplyCore Inc., a local supply chain management and technology solutions integrator, is celebrating their 30th anniversary this November.
SupplyCore was established in 1987 as a small family operation and functioned as a traditional distributor to the aerospace and defense industries. In 1998, SupplyCore was awarded its first major contract with the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA): a Maintenance, Repair, and Operations (MRO) Prime Vendor contract for the North Central U.S., including Illinois. They eventually won eight other MRO regions, supporting most of the continental U.S. as well as Japan, Korea, and the Middle East. In 2008, SupplyCore was awarded the Global Fleet Automotive Support Initiative (FASI-G), and various other government contracts in the aviation and automotive sectors soon followed. As a result, SupplyCore quickly became one of the largest small businesses supporting DLA.
Today, SupplyCore has more than 200 employees, supports 82 countries with 13 facilities located worldwide, works with over 6,500 suppliers, and has earned 29 awards, including two DLA Superior Supplier Awards (2014, 2016), seven entries in Inc. Magazine’s Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Companies (2000–2004, 2016-2017) list, DLA’s Hurricane Sandy award (2013), and most recently, Bloomberg Government’s 200 Federal Industry Leaders award (2017). The company has expanded its offerings to include local real estate services and case management software through affiliated companies Joseph James Partners (JJP) and MPOWR, respectively. SupplyCore also supports local charities RAMP and MELD as well as the Rockford City Market as part of its dedication to community involvement.
In honor of their 30th anniversary, SupplyCore has increased support throughout the year to various military and veterans associations, including Veterans Drop-In Center in Rockford, Vets Roll in South Beloit, Paralyzed Veterans of America, and Operation Gratitude, as a way of giving back to the communities that have supported them and afforded them the opportunity to grow.
