Hampton, Virginia (PRWEB) October 16, 2004 -- Blue Eagle Industries Inc. is pleased to announce its new supplier partnership with Jacobs Sverdrup Engineering, the Research, Operations, Maintenance and Engineering (ROME) Contractor at NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia. The Service Connected disabled veteran owed business is celebrating the opening of a new, dedicated NASA-based facility at a grand opening event today, Friday October 15, 2004 at 1pm EST. There will be a short program, followed by a viewing of the new warehouse. The event will be held in Hampton at 15 Doolittle Road, Building 1187.

The new NASA store is a 4500 square foot facility which will serve NASA’s ROME teams under a five year contract. David Thornton, who is Blue Eagle’s president and CEO, is thrilled to win this landmark contract: “I am extremely pleased to be working with a top notch organizations like Jacobs Sverdrup and NASA. I’m confident they will benefit greatly from the value our products and services bring to the Langley Research Center. And it’s always nice doing business with folks in your own backyard.”

Mr. Thornton is a disabled veteran who is active in veterans’ affairs. He was present in the Oval Office in December 2003 when President George W. Bush signed the Veterans Benefit Act of 2003. This act expanded programs for veterans and their surviving spouses.

Since then, the company has expanded from coast to coast to include 24 warehouses in 19 states and representatives in all 50 states.
