Hardwire LLC has announced that it has signed a contract to supply rifle-resistant steel plates for the FBI. The five-year contract is worth a maximum of $7 million and specifies the delivery of five sizes of torso plates and two sizes of side plates.
“Hardwire’s team has worked with FBI agents for many years, and we understand the challenges, complexities, and dangers they face in their daily work,” said George Tunis, CEO of Hardwire. “We are honored to provide life-saving protection for these agents who diligently work alongside other partner law enforcement agencies to ensure that justice is served.”
Variants of the Hardwire armor system 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 and has saved several law enforcement officers in the last year alone, the company says.
"Our team delivers superior, form-fitting technology to ensure the comfort and safety of our customers. We focus only on durable, rigorously-tested protection that performs flawlessly under fire,” stated Tunis. “The FBI can rest assured that the Hardwire team will continue to provide technology with a military pedigree and unparalleled consistency manufactured with precision automation to keep their agents alive and well.”
