The Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex has been honored with the 2015 Air Force Materiel Command Maintenance Effectiveness Award, Depot Category. 

"The fact that our complex is our command's nominee for the Department of Defense Maintenance Effectiveness Award speaks volumes about the hard work, dedication and professionalism of our workforce, union leaders and management.  It was our people - their collective accomplishments - that made fiscal 2015 a banner year for WR-ALC," said Brig. Gen. Walter Lindsley, complex commander. 

The complex's many accomplishments in fiscal 2015 was the most productive of the last several years, with tens of thousands of commodities and exchangeables produced for aircraft programmed depot maintenance lines and the supply chain; over 300 software projects completed; and over 20,000 preventive maintenance actions to keep facilities     in good condition. 

All of this contributed to a total of 217 aircraft - C-5, C-17, C-130 and F-15 - delivered to customers across the globe. 

"We didn't get here on our own. We integrated with our Air Force supply chain team, the Defense Logistics Agency and program offices," continued Lindsley. "We really appreciate their willingness to walk this journey with us." 

There is much to celebrate from last fiscal year, as the complex distinguished itself in accomplishing workload after workload, and demonstrated "outstanding results in innovation, performance, and efficiency across the entire spectrum of mission challenges, resulting in the best production, financial, safety and quality statistics in the past five years," according to the citation accompanying the award. 

It also read, "Speed, cost, quality and safety trends were all positive and in perfect alignment with production, and the complex ended the year with a positive $100 million net operating revenue." 

Other mission accomplishments included: fourth consecutive year the 559th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron achieved a 100 percent on-time due date performance; F-15 recovery in the 561st AMXS, by staying on the critical path and delivery of 73 aircraft; significantly reducing J-model programmed depot maintenance and critical path flow days from 207 to 167 in the 560th AMXS; producing Block 16/17 modification lines 24 average days early in the 562nd AMXS; and numerous other milestones reached across commodities, software, logistics, electronics, supply chain and maintenance as a result of increased efficiency and cost savings.

"This nomination is not just great news for us here at Robins because ours is a worldwide mission. While we are proud to have our efforts recognized, we are more gratified that our work ensures the readiness of our nation's warfighters around the globe. It's for those brave warriors that we give our all inside the Robins gates on a daily basis," said Lindsley.
