MIKEL ranked in the Top 10 contractors that support NUWCNPT
According to the Providence Business News recent article dated August 30, 2019, “NUWC at 150”, MIKEL is ranked one of the top 10 vendors.
“Ranking No. 9 on the list is Middletown based MIKEL, Inc which received contracts worth $19.7 million in fiscal 2018. The company moved from Fall River to Aquidneck Island after shifting its focus to engineering services and started doing business with NUWC about seven years ago, said Kelly Mendell, the company’s president. Today, NUWC contracts account for more than half of MIKEL’s annual revenue, though Mendell would not be more specific. MIKEL has about 200 employees, including about 100 who work on-site at NUWC, between 50 and 60 at the company’s Middletown headquarters and the rest stationed in Washington, DC, she said. Before it established a business relationship with NUWC, MIKEL was much smaller.
“It’s been extremely important from a revenue perspective and a jobs perspective, “ Mendell said. “The role [NUWC] plays in the Navy is so important, so we perform at our very best. They’re so well-positioned in the technical community and they’re so influential.””
