DOD Announces $9.98 Million Defense Production Act Title III Agreement With Hardwick Tactical Corporation to Strengthen the Domestic Clothing and Textile Industrial Base

MARCH 2, 2021


As part of the national response to COVID-19, the Department of Defense (DOD) entered into a $9.98 million agreement with Hardwick Tactical Corporation to sustain critical industrial base production of US Military dress uniforms.

Hardwick Tactical Corporation intends to purchase and install equipment to increase manufacturing automation. The new equipment will increase the company’s production capacity to meet current and future requirements, as well as realize cost savings for the DOD. The increased production capacity will ensure the U.S. Government continues to have access to this domestic supplier of Berry Amendment compliant dress uniforms.

Using funds authorized and appropriated under the CARES Act, this DPA Title III investment will offset financial distress brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic and enable Hardwick Tactical Corporation to retain current staff and create new jobs.

Hardwick Tactical Corporation’s headquarters and the principal place of performance for the contract is Cleveland, Tennessee.
