Yulista’s Success Brings Growth to Calista
Storyknife, March/April 2021 edition
Yulista Holding, LLC is reporting a variety of significant business achievements in 2020, putting it on track to deliver increased revenue, profit and benefits to Calista Corporation Shareholders.
In 2020, Yulista subsidiaries were awarded:
- The Prototype Integration Facility III Option I with a contract ceiling of $1.07 billion, through Defense Systems and Solutions, a Yulista joint-venture company. This contract supports the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Aviation and Missile Center located at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama.
- $20 million to build an additional 23 military aircraft avionics kits, all while receiving a “Very Good” annual performance rating for the second consecutive year.
- A subcontract at Warner Robins Air Force Base in Houston County, George, to support the aircraft paint and depaint operations for C-5, C-17, C-130, F-15 and RQ-4 series aircraft.
- Also, in early 2021, Yulista Tactical received a contract option valued at just over $2 million for its FBI Security Services direct award program, located on Redstone Arsenal.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Yulista and its subsidiaries anticipate reporting a record business year in 2020. In addition, Yulista is the proud recipient of a nomination last year as one of the “Best Places to Work” in the Huntsville, Alabama area!
Heading into the new year, Yulista is opening new facilities in Huntsville including a brand-new 34,000 square-foot aviation hangar and paint facility. The new hangar increases Yulista’s overall aviation capacity to nearly 200,000 square feet, including 110,000 square feet of aircraft hangar space. The hangar also adds paint capability for both fixed and rotary-wing aircraft and will have capability for future lift and tilt-rotor aircraft.
In March 2021, Yulista opened its new Yukon Headquarters. This four-story building completes the expansion of Yulista’s campus at Redstone Arsenal and features a modern conference space that can be rented out and Café Usgumaut—Yup’ik for “they are connected”—where food and beverages can be purchased during business hours.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Yulista and its subsidiaries anticipate reporting a record business year in 2020.
By the time this newsletter is in the mail, recruitment for the Yulista Internship Program for Calista Shareholders and Descendants will be moving into the applicant review and acceptance stage. For eight weeks this summer, interns will be placed with Yulista at its business locations in Huntsville, Houston, Texas, Panama City, Florida, and Maui, Hawaii. Every year, the program has found a good match, leading to interns hired into part-time or full-time work.
