DYNCORP OPENS MEXICO CITY OFFICE

 RESTON, Va., Sept. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- DynCorp, a $1 billion professional and technical services firm headquartered in Reston, has opened an office in Mexico City and is planning to incorporate a subsidiary of the company there in the coming months. The subsidiary will provide technical and consulting services to the Mexican government and the private sector.
 According to Dan R. Bannister, DynCorp president and CEO, the Mexico City office is a strategic step in the company's continuing diversification effort. DynCorp began mounting its diversification program in 1988 in anticipation of reduced defense spending. According to Bannister, the company has been highly successful in this effort. "In 1988, 78 percent of our revenues came from DoD contracts. Today, that has dropped to less than 50 percent," said Bannister.
 DynCorp's current effort in Mexico is a continuation of its diversification and expansion plan. "Mexico offers a range of opportunities with the environment being our top priority. Our strategy is to penetrate private and public markets for services in the areas of energy technology, security, environmental protection, information technology and aviation services. With or without ratification of the NAFTA agreement by the U.S. government, the opportunities for DynCorp are many, given our wide array of services, and we expect to press ahead with an aggressive growth campaign in this area," said Bannister.
 With more than 20,000 employees at 200 operating locations worldwide, DynCorp is a leading supplier of aviation services to both the U.S. military and the commercial aviation industry, and has for years operated and maintained Department of Defense facilities such as test ranges and major military bases. In addition, DynCorp subsidiaries specialize in providing professional engineering and consulting services to the U.S. government and commercial clients in environmental protection, energy technology, information technology security services and biomedical research.
