U.S. Senators Roger Wicker, R-Miss., and Cindy Hyde-Smith, R-Miss., have praised a $10.8 million contract award to Golden Manufacturing Co., Inc. in Tishomingo County.
The deal is designed to produce trousers for the U.S. Army and Navy. The contract represents the continuation of Department of Defense contracts dating from 2019 for the Golden-based company to produce uniform items for the military services.
“Golden Manufacturing Co. has a strong track record of providing quality uniforms to the U.S. military, and I appreciate that the Department of Defense has recognized those contributions,” Wicker, a senior member of the Armed Services Committee, said. “This contract award will help to keep Mississippians employed and our service members equipped with the basic necessities they need to do their jobs.”
Included in the agreement is a firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, with an October 23, 2023, ordering period end date.
“Golden Manufacturing’s exemplary track record of producing quality uniforms for our servicemen and women is a point of pride in Mississippi,” Hyde-Smith, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, said. “This contract extension will allow its talented workers to continue to provide Mississippi- and American-made garments for our troops.”
