Maryville Company Launches Global Branding
After two years of solid growth, expanding service offerings and a fast start for 2010, Mayville-based Critical Mission Support Services (CMSS) is changing its name and initiating a global rebranding campaign. The company will now operate under the name RELYANT.
“Through a combination of hard work and enthusiastic customer acceptance, our company has achieved significant results in a relatively short period of time,” said Eric Barton, CEO of RELYANT. “The name change to RELYANT is a direct reflection of our success and reflects the company not only as it is today, but our vision for the future. In the company’s vision statement, we say ‘working with our company is a promise delivered.’ Our new name accurately reflects that promise, communicates the type of organization we are, the confidence we have in our capabilities and our customer dedication.”
Founded in 2006, RELYANT is a global “turn-key” service provider dedicated to delivering world-class solutions to complex projects around the globe. The company’s services include construction, life support, logistics/procurement, security and IT communications. In addition to its Maryville headquarters, the company operates another U.S. office in San Antonio and offshore offices in Iraq, Afghanistan and Uganda.
RELYANT’s revenue growth over the past three years has increased from $7 million in 2006 to a projected $80 million in contract revenue for 2010. RELYANT’s services offerings have also expanded with the addition of relocatable building services for commercial companies in Afghanistan, spray foam insulation services for military bases in the states, expanded vehicle maintenance in Iraq and Afghanistan, a contract to provide staffing for forward operating bases and the teaming with new partners to develop rapid housing deployment capabilities.
