Hardwire’s NYPD Contract Helping Another County Business

SNOW HILL – No one doubted that the large contract Hardwire LLC acquired with the NYPD would benefit the Pocomoke-based company. What many may not have realized is that other Worcester County businesses are beginning to profit from Hardwire’s success.

As Hardwire builds bulletproof doors for the NYPD, Snow Hill Auto Body is painting them.

“We’re glad to be involved,” said John Fiscus, manager at Snow Hill Auto Body. “It’s keeping money on the shore and keeping people employed.”

According to George Tunis, chairman and CEO of Hardwire, the company has a large contract with the NYPD to up-armor police cars, outfitting them with bulletproof doors.

“This is the first mass application of bulletproof patrol car doors in the United States,” Tunis said. “We’re doing thousands of doors.”

Maybe you haven't noticed the dozens of attacks on cops over the last year.

I'd be thankful to have a bullet resistant door to use for cover and concealment, not to mention just for driving around in NYC or Chicago or a hundred other cities.

NYC, Manhattan is one of the safest cities in America now. People should educate themselves before speaking/typing.
