Veteran Corps of America
In January 2018, INTERFUZE acquired Veteran Corps of America (VCoA), a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) with a superb reputation for providing products, technology integration, systems fielding, and logistics service in the Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive (CBRNE) arena. VCoA has offices and warehouses in Edgewood, Maryland, located in the shadow of Aberdeen Proving Ground, and just a short drive to Washington, D.C.
VCoA was founded in 2005 by CAPT Bill Wheeler, the grandson of GEN Earl Wheeler, an enlisted soldier in the Washington, D.C. National Guard, who rose through the ranks to become the longest-serving Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in United States’ history. As Veteran Corps’ name implies, VCoA prioritized work and community efforts that directly benefitted soldiers, veterans, and their families.
VCoA leveraged its market knowledge and blended, proven technologies to create new, useful systems and solutions. Because VCoA understood the markets, threats, and needs, VCoA served as a trusted, agnostic integrator of services, products, and technology to a multitude of DoD and first-responder customers.
VCoA provided customers with the best product integration, systems fielding, training, and contractor logistics support possible and was recognized as a four-time recipient of the INC. Magazine 500 Fastest Growing Companies Award. With the addition of VCoA, INTERFUZE was able to expand into the Aberdeen Proving Ground/Washington, DC market, increase knowledge of CBRNE best practices and systems, and leverage VCoA relationships and market knowledge for current and future customers.
