AES International Corporation Joins Siemens Government Services Inc., to Protect Army Installations

Peabody, MA January 12, 2010 – AES International Corporation reported today they will subcontract under Siemens Government Services, Inc.(“SGS”) located in Reston, VA, to assist with the maintenance of Access Control Point (ACP) equipment at U.S. Army installations throughout the U.S. and abroad. In their role for this yearly multimillion dollar project, AES will provide preventative and corrective maintenance on GE Homeland Security products which detect traces of either explosives or narcotics.

According to Rod Mertz, General Manager for AES International Corporation, the immediate need is protecting U.S. service men and women throughout the world. “For over 28 years, AES has been able to provide skilled installation technicians and personnel to support our armed forces and their facilities both domestically and overseas. Our teams will keep the security equipment at Army installations across the globe, fully functional and keep our servicemen and women properly trained so as to maximize the deployed technology’s full potential,” said Mertz.

“With decades of experience in the security marketplace, AES’s expertise aligns well with that of SGS, and enables us to increase our footprint in large geographic areas around the world,” said Gordon Phelps, SGS’ ACP Program Manager. “Both companies’ skill sets are complementary, offering our customer a proven track record of delivering state-of-the-art security solutions, outstanding customer service, and the peace of mind to know we understand their mission and pride ourselves on exceeding their security expectations.”

Aaron Tesnow, Director of Business Development for AES, has worked with Siemens on a variety of projects for over 3 years and is eager to continue the business relationship. According to Aaron, “we are a small woman-owned business committed to providing an unsurpassed level of excellence in support of partners such as Siemens, the U.S. Government and the Army Corp of Engineers and this award is further evidence of that commitment.”
