Ahtna Marine & Construction Company Proudly Establishes SBA 8(a) Certified Joint Venture with J.F. Brennan Co.

Ahtna Marine & Construction Company, LLC (AMCC) formally announces their Small Business Administration (SBA) 8(a) certified joint venture with J.F. Brennan Company (Brennan). Publicly titled the “Ahtna – J.F. Brennan JV”, the partnership establishes a mentor protégé relationship between Alaska Native Corporation subsidiary AMCC and Brennan. 

Together, AMCC and Brennan will bid and execute specific environmental dredging and dam construction projects throughout the United States that may have otherwise been out of reach.

AMCC President Craig O’Rourke said, “The JV combines two highly experienced and capable companies, each with its own considerable resources and expertise. Making this partnership official enables us to compete nationwide as an SBA 8(a) certified small business entity for environmental and maintenance dredging, dam renovation, and other marine construction opportunities.”   

“Our joint venture combines Brennan’s 100 years of experience and AMCC’s reputable SBA 8(a) certified status to better serve clients like the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers small business programs,” said Brennan VP of Business Development Mark Binsfeld.

“We are honored to act as a mentor to AMCC and will use this partnership to contribute to their mission of creating responsible economic growth for future generations of Ahtna people,” Binsfeld concluded.

Both companies center operations around safety, quality, and strong environmental management. Those aligned intrinsic values allowed the partnership to take shape and lead to the formalization of a joint venture agreement.
