Posted 11 May 2012 · Add Comment

Gama Support Services, a member of the Gama Group of global aerospace service companies, together with other project partners, including the MoD's Special Project Multi Air Platform Project Team, has been awarded the UK Ministry of Defence, Chief of Defence Material (CDM) Commendation.

The award is in recognition of exceptional support Gama has given to the Royal Air Force and its Shadow R1 special mission fleet.
 
The Shadow R1 is one of a number of sensitive platforms Gama supports in the UK. As well as providing UK based support and logistics supply, Gama provides service engineering teams and supply chains to support the platform around the world.



The award was presented to key representatives of the support team including Gama Support Service’s engineering director Paul Bristow by Bernard Grey, chief of defence material at a special awards ceremony held at the Ministry of Defence in London.

Commendations recognise achievements of outstanding merit for services beyond normal performance expectations.

“I am both proud and honoured that Gama’s contribution in supporting this ‘Urgent Operational Requirement’ has been commended by the chief of defence material,” said Bristow. 

“We have been afforded the opportunity to support a number of UK Ministry of Defence programmes and appreciate the confidence placed in Gama by the MoD in keeping the RAF Shadow fleet airworthy, in what are particularly challenging operational circumstances. This has been a unique procurement and operational construct and we have played our part along with our industry partners.  Keeping an operational military registered aircraft within civil oversight has been no mean feat, but has demonstrated the industry’s ability to adapt and come up with innovative ideas.”

Paul Bristow, engineering director, Gama Support Services Ltd.
