Texas A&M University opened the Higher Education Center at McAllen (HECM) to support the educational needs that will enhance continued economic development of the region. This $40 million facility is owned by TAMU and has been included in the SSC scope of work. Facility support services for the McAllen building provides an opportunity for SSC to support and further develop an existing mentor/protégé relationship with Industrial Quality Services (IQS). SSC partners with IQS, a certified HUB vendor, in commitment to the value of diversity. The partnership employs IQS to manage the day-to-day operations with dedicated associates for the custodial and maintenance of the HECM facility. SSC at TAMU provides continued support of the operations through training and guidance as needed. We are excited to share the success of IQS and the opportunities SSC and TAMU have provided for the communities of the Rio Grande Valley.
