Filtra Systems, a Chickasaw Nation Industries family company, has received a $2 million contract with the Federal Aviation Administration.
Though an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity “IDIQ” contract, it includes a one-year base period with a six month option, and will consist of fabricating metal parts to be installed at various FAA air and ground communications facilities in the Naval Audit Service.
Currently, the required fabricated metal parts are not commercially available, and will be manufactured by Filtra Systems to meet FAA specifications.
“Filtra Systems began their quest for this sole source contract with the FAA over 18 months ago; since then it has taken a concerted team effort to deliver this winning proposal.” said David Nimmo, CEO of Chickasaw Nation Industries. “This award was largely due to CNI’s excellent past performance with the FAA, and we look forward to strengthening our relationship through this exciting opportunity with Filtra Systems.”
Work on this contract will commence early in the New Year, with first article production and inspection to take place in January.
Filtra Systems Company, LLC is a global leader in custom-engineered industrial filtration and separation products, systems, and technology. With over 40+ years of experience working with dominant players in various industries, Filtra Systems provides their clients with cutting-edge technical solutions to improve their operation and plant efficiency.
Chickasaw Nation Governor Bill Anoatubby noted during his annual state of the Nation address in October that Filtra Systems has developed a mobile filtration system designed for use in fracking operations. This mobile recycling system is capable of filtering up to 10,000 barrels of produced water per day, saving energy companies time and money, while also preserving water resources.

CNI specializes in government contracting, manufacturing and fluid filtration for clients that include the U.S. military, government agencies, the Ford Motor Company, and heavyweights of the energy industry.
