Army orders more bullet-proof glass from O'Gara-Hess

The O'Gara-Hess & Eisenhardt plant in Fairfield will produce $19.2 million in bulletproof glass under an existing contract with the U.S.


According to a news release from O'Gara's Jacksonville, Fla.-based parent company, Armor Holdings Inc., the order falls under a previously announced $53.5 million basic ordering agreement for spare armor components. The U.S. Army's Tank-automotive and Armaments Command has asked Armor (NYSE: AH) to produce more ballistic glass windscreens for its armored Humvees.

The work will be performed in Fairfield, and the glass will be delivered to the Army in 2005 and potentially 2006, Armor said.
