Chamber, MCLB welcome Wyle to town

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Wyle, a company focused on improving day-to-day operations at the Marine Corps Logistics Base, has moved into Albany. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held at the new Wyle office in the Albany Towers on Roosevelt Ave Thursday morning.

Pete Green, Wyle president, said the company will reset returning military vehicles from Southeast Asia so they can be enhanced and redeployed.

"Wyle works with the Marine Corps in multiple capacities at several locations across the country," said Green. "We're very excited to get to be part of this community and have the opportunity to support the Marines and the Project Manager Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Joint Project Office in carrying out their important missions to support the warfighter."

Wyle employees working from the new office and other locations across the nation provide analysis support to assist in the development, integration, sustainment, and demilitarization of ground combat systems, combat service support systems, tactical wheeled vehicles, and force projection equipment.

"We're very excited to be adding an office here.  We are where our customers are and our customers are typically department of defense," said Green.

The company is headquartered in El Segundo, California and employs roughly 4,600 workers at 40 facilities across the nation.  

It provides service men and women increased protection from hazards in combat zones.
