O’Gara-Hess & Eisenhardt Armoring Co. LLC was awarded a $60,736,752 firm-fixed-price contract to procure “family of medium light tactical vehicles” protection kits.

Bids were solicited via the internet with six received, the Department of Defense said in an email Thursday.

Work locations and funding will be determined with each order, with an estimated completion date of Feb. 27, 2024, the DoD said.

U.S. Army Contracting Command, Warren, Mich., is the contracting activity for the work.

In an earlier announcement on a separate contract award, O’Gara said the company had been engaged for production of armor hardware, turret systems and platform integration kits for the U.S. Army.

“Using a combination of transparent and opaque armor, the turrets provide gunners with 360-degree protection while maximizing visibility,” the company said in its own announcement last month. 

The business is found in West Chester Twp., with a Fairfield mailing address.
