Dan, your furniture division did an excellent job for the 121st. We needed to furnish a new 22,000 SF Security Forces Bldg. within budget. Your furniture people were able to accomplish this to include installation. The installers were professional and did a very good job. The building occupants are happy with the furniture. Overall, I would highly recommend AbilityOne for furniture"

Mark Miesse, Contracting Officer

I would like to thank Mr. Leary, Fort Detrick Base Supply Store, for the excellent customer service he provided the Detrick Center for Training and Education. Mr. Leary was instrumental in assisting us with the renovation of our Advanced Technology Center when we first requested a bid for new furniture. He was in constant contact through the furniture renovation, providing assistance when needed. Mr. Leary not only assisted us with the furniture, his good customer service also extends to the store when I have shopped there.”
