Mississippi company receives contract to make Navy uniforms

May 2, 2019

GOLDEN, Miss. (AP) — A company in northeastern Mississippi will receive nearly $16 million to make U.S. Navy uniforms.

Republican U.S. Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith on Thursday announced the 18-month contract award to Golden Manufacturing Co. in Tishomingo County.

The contract is for work to be completed by October 2020, and the Navy has the option to approve one-year extensions for the following three years.

Last month, Golden Manufacturing received an $18.2 million contract to manufacture uniforms for the Army and Air Force.

Hyde-Smith says in a news release that the second contract “is further proof of the strong workforce in Mississippi” and the state’s commitment to the military.
