FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla., Aug. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- They are mavericks, mavens, warriors, scientists, and engineers who see the world as a hyper-connected community able to solve problems quickly and creatively. Their mission is to build and cultivate vibrant, innovative ecosystems that help government clients support the warfighter with better tools faster, and at lower cost.
The rebranding reflects both the evolution of the company as well as its vision for the future. The DEFENSEWERX brand exudes confidence, agility, and access to cutting edge technology.
Rebranding offers the company an opportunity to appeal to a broader customer base as they experience growth throughout the defense industry. Renaming the company in no way diminishes the success the company experienced when sharing the name of the famed General Jimmy Doolittle. DEFENSEWERX will preserve the spirit of rapid innovation as they continue to solve the most intricate and challenging of problems for their government clients.
We are excited about all the new opportunities we have recently encountered. In light of our growing clientele our corporate name has been amended to appeal to all of our defense clients and their mission specific requirements. In no way should this new naming convention portray anything other than total respect for General Doolittle and his legacy here in Northwest Florida. We remain indebted to his valorous and innovative service to our nation. Robert Kirila, COO
