Department of Homeland Security Issues Mega-Contract Award to U.S. Armor

December 21, 2006  | 

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has given privately held U.S. Armor Corp. an opening purchase order on what is the largest non-military concealable body armor contract ever awarded in the United States.

The contract is capable of having a value of $50 million over a five-year span with U.S. Armor as Congress' sole funding vehicle servicing the primary armor needs of the following DHS Agencies: U.S. Coast Guard (USCG), Customs and Border Protection (CBP), U.S. Border Patrol (USBP), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers (FLETC), Federal Protective Service (FPS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Federal Protective Service (FPS), Transportation Security Administration (TSA), Federal Air Marshals (FAM), and the United States Secret Service (USSS).

Georg Olsen, general manager of U.S. Armor and director of its Federal Law Enforcement Group stated: "U.S. Armor is grateful for the confidence DHS has shown in the quality and value of our products as well as the depth of our service levels by selecting us. While we look forward to continuing the positive supply relationships we have already enjoyed for the last several years with CBP, USBP, and ICE, we are also very excited about establishing new relationships with the other DHS agencies and being an integral part of the critical Homeland Security efforts in this country and abroad.”
