QUALITY ASSURANCE ENGINEERING LABORATORY
In 2015, Parts Life, Inc. (PLI) developed the Prototype Integration Facility (PIF) in Moorestown, New Jersey. One of the only privately owned PIFs in the defense industry, the PIF brings together a consortium of small businesses, each with diverse capabilities, creating an agile, cost-effective option for the military to provide life cycle sustainment support. Parts Life, Inc. is proud to help support and strengthen local manufacturing jobs by the establishment of the PIF.
FIRST ARTICLE INSPECTION
The initiative to create the PIF was based on the development of strategic partnerships with military agencies, other industry leaders, higher educational institutions, and state and local governments. While the PIF is not a new concept in the defense industry, the Parts Life, Inc. PIF model is unique in that it is supported by a consortium of small defense contractors rather than by one large manufacture. As the main contractor, Parts Life, Inc. coordinates and leverage the teams’ broad resources into one consortium, capable of collectively accomplishing much larger challenging projects as opposed to single efforts.
The diversity provided by the consortium has been proven to save money for the DoD, increase the facility’s core capabilities, expand the scope of work the team can pursue, and bring more opportunities to our various organizations in the defense industry and region.
The location of the PLI PIF, in the greater Philadelphia region in southern New Jersey, enables the repurposing of the Joint Base JDML (Joint Base Dix, McGuire, Lakehurst) by providing support to many DoD platforms and missions.
