Evanston, IL – November 7, 2022 – QuesTek Innovations, the primary operating subsidiary of QuesTek International LLC, today announced the successful completed delivery and close out of a multi-year, multi-million-dollar subcontract with Advanced Technology International (ATI).

The subcontract came through QuesTek’s membership in the ATI-managed National Armaments Consortium / Defense Ordnance Technology Consortium. The subcontract required delivery of operational prototypes and technical data to the consortium’s end customer, the US Army. The operational prototypes utilized a high-strength steel originally developed by QuesTek under a US Army sponsored effort to support Future Combat Systems (FCS). The successful completion employed QuesTek’s Material by Design® solutions to optimize component design, material selection, and supply for performance and robustness.

QuesTek’s demonstrated expertise in delivering this subcontract has led to prior additional awards through the NAC/DOTC membership. The full scope of QuesTek’s additional ATI consortia memberships includes AMTC, IWRP, MSTIC, and NSTIC. QuesTek is currently evaluating participation in both the Cornerstone and CREATE consortia.

According to QuesTek COO Bill Mahoney, “The successful close out of our second ATI subcontract is a welcome milestone, as it further demonstrates two important Company capabilities: first, that QuesTek can deliver later-stage applied R&D in the form of operational prototypes, and second, that we can readily form and manage custom supply chains to deliver our proprietary materials into special, high-performance applications. As a former Board Chair of ATI, I am delighted at the relationship and its progress to date, and I look forward to additional favorable results for both QuesTek and ATI as we go forward.”
