MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – November 2, 2016 – New Hampshire-based Red River, a leading technology integrator, announced today that it has formed Veteran Technology Partners (VTP), a Service Disabled Veteran Owned certified Joint Venture with Competitive Range Solutions, LLC (CRS), a high-growth technology solution provider. The SDVOSB Joint Venture was unveiled at The 2016 National Veterans Small Business Engagement (NVSBE) Conference in Minneapolis, Minn.
“Red River is excited to mentor and partner with CRS to enable superior care and support for our nation’s veterans through the innovative use and integration of technology,” said Red River President Jeff Sessions. “No one deserves our focused attention more than our Vets and we are honored to put our IT expertise to work for them.”
An official SDVOSB joint venture resulting from a SBA certified mentor-protégé relationship between CRS and Red River, Veteran Technology Partners (VTP) modernizes IT infrastructure and solves the technology challenges of agencies serving the U.S. government, Veterans and their families. The joint venture delivers a world-class and veteran led suite of capabilities including cloud computing, data center, networking, physical security and technical support services.
“As a combat veteran, I understand the unique needs and challenges the VA faces firsthand and look forward to combining the advanced capabilties of CRS with Red River’s proven federal IT expertise to provide the new IT solutions and upgrades necessary to modernize infrastructure for today’s VA,” said CRS CEO Noah Vasquez.
Red River chose to partner with and serve as a mentor for CRS due to its strong reputation for providing mission support and technology services for state, local, and federal government. An ISO 9001:2015 certified technology consultancy, CRS has excelled at providing acquisition services and program management support to government end-users and has demonstrated its ability to support infrastructure operations and engineering solutions delivery. Red River brings its own extensive resources and IT expertise along with a demonstrated philanthropic commitment to support veterans and their families. Together, as VTP, the two companies have the resources, engineering skills, secure supply chain, purchasing vehicles and partnerships required to address the unique challenges of the VA through the selection, configuration and deployment of modern technology solutions.
