La Crosse, Wis., headquartered J.F. Brennan Company reports that it has entered a Small Business Administration (SBA) 8(a) certified joint venture with Ahtna Marine & Construction Company LLC (AMCC).
The Ahtna – J.F. Brennan JV partnership establishes a mentor protégé relationship between Brennan and Alaska Native Corporation subsidiary AMCC.
Together, Brennan and AMCC will bid and execute specific environmental dredging and dam construction projects throughout the United States that may have otherwise been out of reach.
“Our joint venture combines Brennan’s 100 years of experience and AMCC’s reputable SBA 8(a) certified status to better serve clients like the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers small business programs,” said Brennan VP of Business Development Mark Binsfeld. “We are honored to act as a mentor to AMCC and will use this partnership to contribute to their mission of creating responsible economic growth for future generations of Ahtna people.”
Brennan says that both companies center operations around safety, quality, and strong environmental management. Those aligned intrinsic values allowed the partnership to take shape and led to the formalization of a joint venture agreement.
AMCC President Craig O’Rourke said, “The JV combines two highly experienced and capable companies, each with its own considerable resources and expertise. Making this partnership official enables us to compete nationwide as an SBA 8(a) certified small business entity for environmental and maintenance dredging, dam renovation, and other marine construction opportunities.“
