Alaska-based Silver Mountain Construction LLC, a subsidiary of North Wind Group, has opened a Guam office with an eye for federal contracts.
Located in the J&G building next to Meskla restaurant in Hagåtña, the company welcomed guests at its new office Thursday.
Doyon A. Morato, a Guam entrepreneur whose ventures include Zories Only, is the operations manager on Guam for both Silver Mountain Construction and North Wind Group.
North Wind Group President and Chief Executive Officer Chris Leichtweis attended the opening of the Guam office for Silver Mountain and North Wind.
He said North Wind does federal contracting – primarily in Alaska and also in the lower 48 states.
The company expanded into facilities operation, airport management, engineering technical services, environmental remediation, and compliance, Leichtweis said.
'A lot of opportunities here'
He said the business provides "all sorts of services the federal government requires and asks us to do."
"There is a lot of opportunities here for the next 15 years and we look to provide ... construction, environmental, facility operations to serve Guam," he said.
Silver Mountain describes itself on the company's website as a minority-owned Alaska native company specializing in vertical infrastructure projects, military fueling projects, process piping, and civil and underground construction projects.
The company offers both design and build capabilities, as well as the execution of fully designed projects.
Its principals are experienced with government contracting requirements, having performed projects for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army and U.S. Coast Guard, as well as other commercial entities, the company stated.
