Ahtna Marine & Construction Company (AMCC) formally announces their Small Business Administration (SBA) 8(a) certified joint venture with J.F. Brennan Company (Brennan). Publicly titled the Ahtna – J.F. Brennan JV, the partnership establishes a protégé/mentor relationship between Alaska Native corporation subsidiary AMCC and Brennan.
Together, AMCC and Brennan will bid and execute specific environmental dredging and dam construction projects throughout the United States that may have otherwise been out of reach.
AMCC President Craig O’Rourke says, “The JV combines two highly experienced and capable companies, each with its own considerable resources and expertise. Making this partnership official enables us to compete nationwide as an SBA 8(a) certified small business entity for environmental and maintenance dredging, dam renovation, and other marine construction opportunities.”

“Our joint venture combines Brennan’s 100 years of experience and AMCC’s reputable SBA 8(a) certified status to better serve clients like the US Army Corps of Engineers small business programs,” says Brennan VP of Business Development Mark Binsfeld.
“We are honored to act as a mentor to AMCC and will use this partnership to contribute to their mission of creating responsible economic growth for future generations of Ahtna people,” Binsfeld adds.
