2016 Champions of Maryland Manufacturing


Hardwire, LLC recognized as Champion of Manufacturing in the State of Maryland.

George Tunis exemplifies "Increasing Growth Through Visionary Leadership" as George started Hardwire in 2000. For years, Hardwire focused on military vehicle protection, but George saw new opportunities, and expanded to protective systems for law enforcement and civilians. Hardwire was recently contracted to armor the New York Police Department vehicle fleet and make the world's lightest body armor. This growth has filtered into other local companies too. Hardwire acquired a third building in Pocomoke, expanding to 140,000square feet of manufacturing space. Hardwire employees earn an average of $77,000/year, astounding for a rural Eastern Shore community. Hardwire is a valuable community partner and growing manufacturer.
