Recent GSA/DLA Changes Create Challenges

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

Recent GSA changes have created significant supply chain challenges, particularly with the elimination of GSA-supplied 8010 series hazardous paint, primers and sealants. AIS is your local Utah military and aerospace warehouse for aerospace coatings and sealants as well as hazardous chemical supply.

AIS also carries the majority of paint shop consumable supplies. We offer an easy alternative to GSA and DLA long lead times, and we’re happy to help you avoid GSA and DLA supply challenges. We offer just-in-time delivery on most Mill 85285 coatings, 23377 primer, and aircraft-approved sealants.

Contact us to discuss your unique needs. AIS is a proud supporter of Hill AFB.
