Osage LLC has signed a strategic alliance with United Dynamics to jointly pursue contracts with various Department of Defense programs.

“This is an exciting addition to the Osage LLC portfolio,” board member Rick Perrier said. “We were looking for an entry point into aviation.”

Aerospace is a leading industry in Oklahoma, second only to the energy industry. According to the Oklahoma Department of Commerce, the economic impact of aerospace in Oklahoma is close to $44 billion annually. Of that, nearly half is defense aviation. Osage LLC, a HUBZone-Certified 8(a) Small Business, has experience in the defense industry and has contracted previously on U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force technology and construction projects.

United Dynamics, located in Shawnee, Okla., specializes in aerospace and defense engineering, design, manufacturing, and Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO). Both companies anticipate leveraging their partnership to grow and generate new jobs.

“UDI is a company we can grow with,” Perrier said. “They are committed to Osage success and we are to theirs.”
