Akima Subsidiary Gets USDA Research Center Support Contract

An Akima subsidiary has received a potential five-year, $13.6M contract to help manage a Department of Agriculture research facility in Wyndmoor, Pa.

Sunik will provide logistics, maintenance, operations and facility support services at the USDA’s Eastern Regional Research Center, Akima said Tuesday.
