Centers of Excellence Since its inception in 1987, CTC has gained experience operating national Centers of Excellence. That year, we were selected to operate the Navy Metalworking Center (formerly known as the National Center for Excellence in Metalworking Technology), and we have subsequently been awarded a number of similar opportunities.

All CTC clients benefit from the up-to-the-minute expertise readily available through these Centers of Excellence. CTC employs highly qualified experts and engages the most advanced technology to constantly deliver leading-edge solutions for high-profile projects.

CTC operates these Centers of Excellence:

Department of Defense (DoD) Safety Management Center of Excellence (SMCX)

(Formerly the DoD Voluntary Protection Programs Center of Excellence (VPP CX))
Karen Nelson, Readiness Safety Systems Program Manager, 703-310-5652, vppcx@ctc.com, or visit the Web site at smscx.org.

The Department of Defense Safety Management Center of Excellence (SMCX) deploys world-class safety management systems (SMS) and programs that assist DoD installations and defense agencies in achieving and maintaining certification and recognition such as Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Voluntary Protection Programs Star status. Commanders at Star sites are realizing what they note as "a decrease in non-availability," thus an increase in readiness and sustainability.

Navy Metalworking Center

(Formerly the National Center for Excellence in Metalworking Technology (NCEMT))
Daniel L. Winterscheidt, CTC NMC Program Director, (814) 269-6840, winter@ctc.com, or visit the Web site at www.nmc.ctc.com.

The Navy Metalworking Center was established in 1988 as one of the Centers of Excellence sponsored by the United States Navy Manufacturing Technology (ManTech) Program. Early in its history, the Navy Metalworking Center established its reputation as one of the nation's premier resources for developing and disseminating affordable, advanced metalworking technologies.

National Defense Center for Energy and Environment (NDCEE)

(Formerly the National Defense Center for Environmental Excellence)
Gino Spinos, CTC Director of Environmental and Process Engineering, 814-269-2894, spinosg@ctc.com, or visit the Web site at ndcee.army.mil

The National Defense Center for Energy and Environment (NDCEE) serves as a national leadership organization to address high-priority energy, environmental, safety, and occupational health challenges for the Department of Defense (DoD), other government organizations, and the industrial community. The NDCEE supports research, demonstration, and fielding of viable, mission-driven solutions that reduce total ownership costs.
