$314 Million Bid For Miami-Dade County Metrorail Cars
Maloof took the lead in representing an international European manufacturer that competed with other companies from Spain, France and Korea to bid for a contract with Miami-Dade County for new rail cars on its mass transportation system, Metrorail.
He put together a plan that included local job creation for assembly of the cars and the value proposition with a comprehensive turnkey package featuring service, maintenance and the best price. In 2010, the county awarded his client a $300 million contract to provide 136 new rail transit vehicles, related equipment and professional services. The cars replace aging cars on the system that began operations in 1984.
