Effective and efficient procurement for an organization as large and complex as the U.S. military is notoriously difficult. Keeping the active duty and reserve military of over two million service members supplied is also a challenge.

ADS is a government contractor whose entire business model was designed around making your job easier. Our roots started more than 20 years ago when we began outfitting Navy SEALs with quality dive equipment in an efficient manner. Our mission continues today as we manage 65+ contract vehicles, 3,000 supplier partnerships, and over 50,000 products.
