HARDWIRE, LLC AWARDED THE STANDARD AND SPECIAL MISSION CERAMIC BODY ARMOR PLATE CONTRACTS BY THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION
In September 2022, Hardwire, LLC began execution of two newly awarded Rifle Resistant Ceramic Body Armor Plate Contracts for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The $9,000,000 combined contracts make available high performance body armor plates that are critical to DOJ Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Agent and Hostage Rescue Team survival during execution of their law enforcement duties.
The contracts will also make available this high-performance protective equipment to other DOJ law enforcement personnel such as Drug Enforcement Agency agents and U.S. Marshals.
“The two new awards for lightweight ceramic plates coupled with our previous FBI steel plate contract is proof that Hardwire is making the best ballistic armor available. The Hardwire team emerged from all three competitions with the highest technical score and lowest price. This is a win for both the agents and the American taxpayer,” said George Tunis, CEO of Hardwire.
Variants of these Hardwire body armor plates are also available to other law enforcement organizations. Hardwire armor is already worn by tens of thousands of police officers and U.S. military personnel.
“Our state-of-the-art robotic facilities, passion for excellence, and superior materials are raising the bar in the armor markets. Our team is fundamentally changing our customer’s expectations for quality, light weight, and performance under fire,” stated Tunis. “The agents and law enforcement professionals are the reason we push for perfection.”
These five-year contracts make available five sizes of torso plates and two sizes of side plates to deliver protection from multiple threats and multiple impacts.
