U.S. Rep. Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) applauds the approval of a competitive federal contract to Patriot Industries, Inc. in Monticello, Kentucky. The company earned a military contract to manufacture dry suits for the U.S. Coast Guard, which will create 15 new jobs.
"We have the best workforce in the country and this new contract is proof of the quality manufacturing that allows companies in our region, like Patriot Industries, to compete for federal work," said Congressman Rogers. "Patriot Industries has been a trusted partner in southern Kentucky for nearly two decades, and I applaud their diligent efforts to provide jobs in our region."
Patriot Industries received HUBZone certification from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) in 2009 and has won multiple contracts for its expertise in cutting and sewing military products.
"Patriot Industries is a great steward of Wayne County, providing quality jobs and supporting the community year after year," said Mike Anderson, Wayne County Judge Executive. "All the employees at Patriot Industries make us proud of the work they do for our military service men and women."
Patriot Industries was founded in 1998 in Monticello. The company also operates a facility in nearby Albany, Kentucky.
