DECATUR, Ill. - World of Powersports' military portal has been recognized as a Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control's 2013 Small Business of the Year. 

The award narrative states the award was for providing best value pricing on contracts, along with offering additional services, including deep stock of inventory allowing shortened delivery times, OCONUS (a website serving overseas military families) delivery of goods and custom kitting.

In addition the custom website developed for Lockheed-Martin procurement representatives allowed for fewer emails and phone calls to obtain information, lowering Lockheed Martin's labor cost.

World of Powersports achieved 99.9 percent accuracy and on-time delivery score for the fiscal year, despite managing the largest volume of purchase order line items of any company used on the SOF CLSS contract. World of Powersports is an integral supplier for the procurement team supporting the Family of Special Operations Vehicles (FOSOV) through the Special Operations Forces Contractor Logistics Support Services (SOF CLSS) contract.

World of Powersports is a Top 100 motorcycle, ATV/UTV, snowmobile and personal watercraft dealership with locations in Decatur and Peoria, Illinois.  It is a dealer for Polaris, Kawasaki, Can-Am, Yamaha, Suzuki, Arctic-Cat, Kymco, KTM, Sea-Doo, Ski-Doo, Honda and others. Its primary relationship with Lockheed-Martin is in support of ATVs, motorcycles, snowmobiles and side-by-sides in use by the U.S. armed forces.
