From light bulbs to bulldozers, the Construction and Equipment (C&E) supply chain provides a diverse set of solutions for our military and other federal customers. Our support programs include equipment to support fire emergencies and force protection, communication and tactical equipment, and metal to keep critical weapon systems operational.

C&E provides customers worldwide with construction and facilities maintenance materials. Our support even goes beyond land as we provide the services with marine life saving and diving equipment.

C&E leverages contractual agreements with commercial suppliers to ensure availability and rapid shipment. And we work to tailor support to customers across the globe.

The Secretary of Defense designated DLA as the Defense Department Executive Agent for construction and barriers, making C&E the single DOD point of contact for that support.
