Sunday, August 14, 2005

NEW MADRID -- Kontek Industries, one of the technology leaders in homeland security and force protection products, announced it has been awarded a Federal Supply Schedule contract from the General Services Administration. The Schedule 84 allows law enforcement, security, marine craft, fire/rescue, and special purpose clothing products and services to be sold directly to the federal government.

"We are very pleased to be awarded this contract. For a small and fast-

growing company like Kontek, it is the quickest and easiest way to grow sales in the federal marketplace," said Don Utz, president of Kontek Industries. "Holding this contract also allows federal agencies to be aware of and procure our services and products faster and easier than before."

Kontek Industries, headquartered in New Madrid, is a homeland security company that helps solve the most critical homeland security and defense-

related challenges in the private and public sectors.

The company manufactures the world's most technologically advanced vehicle and delay-access barriers, blast resistant barriers, L-8 and NIJ-4, .50 caliber armor-proof, blast-tested guardhouses, mobile mortar-proof troop housing, erectable mortar shield canopies and telecommunication shelters in its 150,000 square-foot facility.

Kontek has provided modular blast barriers to the U.S. Air Force Force Protection Command and Control Program Office. It has also provided vehicle and delay access barriers to 12 nuclear facilities throughout the United States and to two national security facilities: Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories.
