The event brings together the fuel handling industry from across the US including a strong representation from the US military and aviation sector. We attend as specialist contractors to support the US military fuel infrastructure around the world.
A&A is the preferred supplier for Petrol Oil and Lubricant (POL) maintenance on the major US bases in the UK and currently has M&E teams working on projects at RAF Lakenheath, RAF Fairford and RAF Mildenhall.
At this year’s Expo A&A were invited to do a presentation on the Buncefield Terminal Disaster on its 10th anniversary. Henry Simpson, Commercial Director, looked back at the causes of the explosion and the lessons learnt from the unprecedented event. Henry described A&A’s role as the principal contractor for the clean-up and decontamination of the site during the 30 months spent on site.
With the growth in opportunities working for the US military and US companies, A&A has established a US business called A&A Federal Services LLC based in San Antonio, Texas. The US business is a corporate member of the National Petroleum Management Association http://www.npma-fuelnet.org/ and will focus on POL maintenance contracts and projects with US companies around the world.
