Thompson Gray billboard campaign sets tone for TEAMS process.

As part of its participation in MDA’s Technical, Engineering and Advisory Management Support (TEAMS) contract process, Thompson Gray is raising visibility through the use of billboards at key locations near Redstone Gates 1 and 9. The billboards emphasize Thompson Gray’s extensive experience relevant to the TEAMS Business Operations contract the company is pursuing. The billboards also highlight the strength of Thompson Gray’s partners — Intrepid, MCR, MTS, Qualis, Quantech and Seabrook Solutions.

The billboard on Martin Road is a large vinyl bulletin, while the unit on I-565 (just west of the Space and Rocket Center) is a digital board. Note the pink color in that photo is not accurate — that is just due to daytime photo limitations of the digital medium.
