Doubleday Acquisitions LLC awarded $30M defense contract

A Dayton-area company has been awarded a $30 million defense contract for medical equipment and accessories. The deal may prompt more local jobs.

Doubleday Acquisitions LLC, a limited liability company tied to CSafe Global in Moraine, won the contract from the Defense Logistics Agency, a combat support organization in the United States Department of Defense. Doubleday beat out 134 other companies for the award, which was a result of competitive acquisition.

The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract will provide medical equipment and accessories to the Defense Logistics Agency electronic catalog. Military services that will utilize the equipment and accessories are the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps.

The five-year deal, which does not include any options periods, was awarded by Defense Logistics Agency Troop Support in Philadelphia. Work will be performed in Ohio, and the ordering period end date is listed as Dec. 21, 2025.

The contract is significant because it brings in a massive amount of new work for the local firm, which offers cold chain shipping solutions as well as air cargo solutions and cell and gene solutions. The award is likely to help the company grow and may lead to new hires.

Founded in 1989 and headquartered in Moraine, CSafe makes containers to transport temperature-sensitive materials around the world. The company primarily services the biopharmaceutical and life science industries, but it also sells its products to healthcare companies, airlines, the military and international disaster relief organizations. CSafe, formerly known as Energy Storage Technologies, and later AcuTemp Thermal Systems, merged with CSafe LLC in 2012.
