FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Albuquerque, NM (April 22, 2016) – Today, Fort Sill Apache Industries, LLC (FSAI) announced the opening of offices in Albuquerque, NM. These new offices house one of FSAI’s subsidiaries, Apache Homelands, LLC, and will support FSAI’s continued growth in the Government and private sectors.
“Since our official Federal and State recognition as a native New Mexico tribe, it is extremely important to our people that we continue the process of repatriation to our homeland,” said Jeff Haozous, Fort Sill Apache Tribal Chairman. “With close proximity to our aboriginal territory and a wide range of current and potential customers, opening Albuquerque offices will benefit the tribe and our tribal members,” added Haozous.
Founded in 2016, Apache Homelands, LLC, is a wholly-owned tribal company, providing clients with a broad range of facility services that include program and project management, property and facilities management, logistics management, shipping/receiving/warehousing, continuous commissioning, and vehicle maintenance/fuel management. Headquartered at the tribe’s reservation in Akela, NM and now with offices in Albuquerque, NM, Apache Homelands, LLC has applied for the following SBA certifications: Small Disadvantaged Business, 8(a) program participant, and HUBZone firm.
Apache Homelands, LLC is managed by John Melton who brings 40 years of Federal contracting experience to the company.

Under his direction, Melton increased the number of LLC employees by 30%.
