BOSTON – Mabbett & Associates has been named the 2015 Region 1 Prime Contractor of the Year Award, according to an announcement by Robert Nelson, Massachusetts SBA District Director.

Arthur N. Mabbett is the President and Founder of Mabbett & Associates, Inc. and served our country meritoriously, before starting out on his own as a small business owner. A veteran of the U.S. Army as a Major, Environmental Science Officer completing six years active duty and 13 years in the U.S. Army Reserve – Mr. Mabbett still remains actively committed to the veteran community as the current President of the Veterans Business Council, Disabled Veterans of America and American Legion.

During his military service, he was responsible for environmental, health and safety programs at the Tripler Medical Center in Hawaii. Mr. Mabbett was also responsible for the development and implementation of the U.S. Army, Hawaii’s environmental program – so it was only natural that he leveraged the knowledge and experience gained to form Mabbett & Associates.  Established in 1980, Mabbett & Associates brings over 35 years of experience providing environmental consulting and engineering services – an essential step to maintaining a healthy and natural environment for breaking ground on construction and land use.  

In order to be a successful prime contractor, a key ingredient for Mabbett & Associates in developing a growing and sustainable practice - has been the ability to maintain a strong and effective executive management team.  The firm is proud that Mabbett’s executive team has worked together for over 15 years!

Another criteria of an effective prime contractor for the federal government has been the ability to stay in compliance with government regulations.  Mabbett supports clients in negotiating successfully with regulatory agencies by developing consensus for practical strategies and conflict management.  Results have not only reduced costs, but expedited coordination among multiple regulators; state environmental agencies, EPA, and other local and federal agencies.

“Mr. Mabbett and the team at Mabbett and Associates are very deserving of the Prime Contractor of the Year Award”, said Robert H. Nelson, “Through strong leadership and a dedicated team, the business has been awarded major Prime contracts with EPA, VA and GSA plus others over the years with the ability to sustain long and successful, repeat client relationships. The track record is noteworthy and commendable.  On top of the many business awards and accomplishments, Mr. Mabbett has never forgotten the community and especially veterans.”

Mabbett brings eight years of experience as a small business prime contractor, effectively balancing the fluid workload and resourcing needs of federal contracts.  As a professional services firm, effective and efficient utilization of assets – commonly referred to as “chargeability” is critical to profitability.  The past five years in the federal market has been challenging due to difficult federal budget conditions, to which Mabbett has effectively managed these challenges by planning, reacting and responding to federal market changes.

Mabbett & Associates was nominated by Christopher Barron, Colonel for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Mabbett & Associates will be honored along with the other Massachusetts Small Business Week 2015 award winners at an event at Sheraton Framingham on May 4, 2015.
