TINKER AIR FORCE BASE, Oklahoma --

As the Tinker and the Primes Conference concludes, it’s important to understand why Tinker is so vital to the nation’s defense and how collaboration with industry ensures readiness and sustainment. Today, we look at another large organization headquartered here: 448th Supply Chain Management Wing

The 448th Supply Chain Management Wing provides the planning and execution of depot-level repairable and consumable spare parts to sustain Air Force Programmed Depot Maintenance operations and more than 5,000 operational aircraft and 16,000 engines across the globe. The wing also provides spare parts to sustain a credible and responsive Intercontinental Ballistic Missile capability, a wide range of support equipment, and Space and C3I systems. The 448th SCMW is a virtual wing without geographic boundaries, operating within three different time zones, which makes it a “one-of-a-kind” organization. The wing, headquartered at Tinker Air Force Base, consists of three Planning and Execution Groups and one Supply Chain Management Group and employs approximately 3,000 civilian and military personnel dispersed at Tinker AFB, Robins AFB, Georgia and Hill AFB, Utah.
