Air Force Merges Work at 3 Depots into Single Center
July 11, 2012
The Air Force has consolidated operations at its three strategic depots into the Air Force Sustainment Center at Tinker Air Force Base, Okla.
The consolidation is part of Air Force Materiel Command's reorganization, which has eliminated 1,050 overhead positions to save $100 million annually, said Lt. Gen. Bruce A. Litchfield, who became the sustainment center's first commander on Monday.
By consolidating operations at the sustainment center, the Air Force hopes to make operations more efficient to save the Air Force even more money, Litchfield told Air Force Times.
