Fluor Corporation announced today that DuPont Engineering has awarded the company a construction, maintenance and services contract for nine sites throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico. This new contract includes seven existing sites in which Fluor already serves, plus two additional sites in Kinston, N.C. and Manati, Puerto Rico. Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value in the fourth quarter of 2009.

Through our 30-plus-year relationship with DuPont, we have demonstrated long-term value in quality of service and cost effectiveness year after year, said Bill Wasilewski, vice president of sales for Fluor’s Global Services Group. More importantly, our more than 30 years without a lost work day at DuPont sites at the Front Royal, Va., site—and 23 years at both Florence, S.C., and Fayetteville, N.C., sites—exemplifies the clear focus we put on safety for both DuPont and Fluor employees.

We appreciate the confidence that DuPont places in Fluor to execute a variety of construction and maintenance services at its operating facilities, said Kirk Grimes, president of Fluor’s Global Services Group. Our ability to leverage services across clusters of sites provides DuPont with a flexible and cost-effective contracting solution that fits its business model.

As part of the work that Fluor will perform across the nine sites, some 600 plant personnel will work at the facilities on an ongoing basis for the duration of the new three-year contract.

Fluor’s Global Services business segment offers customized solutions that assist plant and facility owners in improving their operations and enhancing the execution of their capital projects. Services include operations and maintenance, small capital project execution, turnarounds, facility management, plant engineering, mobile equipment, tools and contract staffing.
