October 21, 2022

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators Roger Wicker, R-Miss., and Cindy Hyde-Smith, R-Miss., today praised a $10.8 million contract award to Golden Manufacturing Co., Inc. in Tishomingo County 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,” said Wicker, a senior member of the Armed Services Committee. “This contract award will help to keep Mississippians employed and our service members equipped with the basic necessities they need to do their jobs.”

“Golden Manufacturing’s exemplary track record of producing quality uniforms for our servicemen and women is a point of pride in Mississippi,” said Hyde-Smith, who serves on the Senate Appropriations Committee.  “This contract extension will allow its talented workers to continue to provide Mississippi- and American-made garments for our troops.”

The new contract award is a firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, with an Oct. 23, 2023, ordering period end date. The Defense Logistics Agency issued the $10.8 million through FY2023-2024 defense working capital appropriations.

Golden Manufacturing received a similar contract in 2021.
