Weldin Construction Services, a subsidiary of CIRI Services Corp., and CIRI were honored guests at the ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Defense Logistics Agency fuels laboratory at Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson. Weldin worked as the general contractor for the renovation project. Air Force Maj. Kerry Colburn, Defense Logistics Agency Energy-Alaska commander; Navy Capt. Kevin Henderson, Defense Logistics Agency Energy-Pacific commander; and Col. Christopher Lestochi, Alaska District commander, officially opened the renovated DLA Energy-Alaska petroleum laboratory during a ceremony at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson Sept. 12.
The laboratory was a 1950s-era lab used to test fuels for military and other federal customers to ensure they meet or exceed military specifications. Weldin and CIRI attended the ceremony as honored guests. Richard Weldin who oversees Weldin Construction in his new role as President of CIRI Services Corporation said “Focusing on customer satisfaction and best value has always been a priority goal of Weldin Construction and that goal continues.
