Glacier Technologies was originally
established by BBNC to meet the prevailing need for high quality engineering
services within various government agencies and commercial industries.
Today, the company provides a broad range of support services that fall within
functional areas: Information Technology, Test
and Evaluation, Special Operations and Ranges, and Call Centers. Glacier looks
forward to the future and its continued growth within its market. Such optimism
is based on the company’s exceptional past performance record, dedication to
excellence, high quality of its employees, and solid management team.
Glacier was also established to
support the shareholders of BBNC by providing them with a predictable and
continuous increase in dividends. Additionally, it affords to its shareholders
the opportunity for improved employment and educational opportunities by
offering student internships and full-time employment opportunities through the Native Alaskan Intern and Career Advancement Program (NAICAP). In doing so, the
mission of Glacier is consistent with the goals and objectives outlined in the
BBNC strategic plan.
