DHS Systems Opens New Support Facility in Manhattan, KS

DHS Systems' new support facility in Manhattan, KS. Manhattan, KS – On July 1, 2009, Reeves EMS manufacturer DHS Systems LLC held the grand opening of its new support facility (SF) near Fort Riley in Manhattan, Kansas.

The 3,200 square-foot facility, which features a 2,000-square foot bay area and square-acre yard for outside repairs and storage, offers support to customers north of the Kansas-Oklahoma border, from west of the Mississippi River to western Colorado.

Support Facility manager Mark Williams and his staff handle repairs, retrofitting and demonstrations of DHS Systems’ line of Deployable Rapid Assembly Shelter (DRASH) Systems, and support equipment, as well as emergency medical products offered through the Reeves EMS brand. Williams is also responsible for area business development.

The opening in Manhattan is just the latest effort made by DHS Systems to extend support throughout the country. Last year, the company opened a regional support facility (RSF) at Fort Lewis in Dupont, Washington to assist customers in U.S. Western states, as well as Korea, Japan, Guam and the Philippines. 

Additionally, the company’s RSF at Fort Bragg, which oversees U.S. Eastern states, expanded their office earlier this year. The facility now features a classroom for equipment training and additional space for the region’s logistics team. A new depot-level work bay has also equipped RSF Bragg to perform maintenance on as many as three TMSS Medium Systems and one TMSS Large System at the same time.     

As the need for support of DRASH and Reeves EMS equipment continues to grow, Williams hopes SF Riley will provide customers in the Midwest with the help they need.

“The main thing I want customers to know is that we’re here and ready to support them in any way we can,” says Williams.

DHS Systems support facilities are located throughout the country to assist customers, including at Fort Bragg, Fort Stewart, Fort Bliss, Fort Hood, Fort Lewis and Fort Riley. Mark Williams can be reached at mwilliams@drash.com or at 785.537.8900.

SF Riley is located at 1616 Recreation Drive, Manhattan, Kansas 66503.
