LOCK4 LLC is a SDVOSB, HUBZone, DBE business based in Red Springs, NC. LOCK4 LLC is a multi-disciplined small business focused on Department of Defense (DOD) Training, Education, Exercise Development and Knowledge Management under the overarching Administration / General Management professions. Owner Phil Locklear has 30 years of DOD related experience. NC PTAC has worked with LOCK4 LLC providing government contracting assistance since 2011.
The PTAC and SBDTC have worked with the client in developing their business and securing the registrations and certifications necessary to pursue their government contracting goals. Mr. Locklear has been a pleasure to work with and is driven to make his company successful. His efforts are now paying off with subcontracting awards at Fort Bragg, NC and that success continues to build. His unique business offering positions his company well to take advantage of the upcoming opportunities in disaster relief due to Hurricane Matthew.
From his many years of military service, Mr. Locklear applies a methodical, well planned approach to every project we have worked with him on so far. His discipline and work ethic have served him well in the projects we have worked on to improve his business so far, and I am confident his current success will continue to build. While maintaining the subcontracts he currently is performing on at Fort Bragg, NC, Mr. Locklear is still able to find the time to pursue additional opportunities for his company. He has put together an impressive team of employees that understand his vision for the company and are a true asset. I cannot stress how much his military training and background have assisted him in the success of his company.
Mr. Locklear advised me that he values the assistance of the NC PTAC and SBTDC personnel and is confident it will assist him in achieving his long terms goals for his growing company.
