Disabled workers win US$6.5 million USAF contract for air cargo nets

2012 03 20

TAC Industries, a nonprofit organisation, in Springfield has been awarded a US$6.5 million contract to provide the US Air Force with 35,000 air cargo nets during the next year, according the Department of Defence.

The contract calls for TAC to provide more than 13,000 tie down-top nets and nearly 24,000 tie down-side nets to the Support Equipment and Vehicle Division at Robins Air Force Base, Georgia. The work is expected to be completed next March, the Dayton Daily News reported.

The work will help subsidise TAC Industries, which was formed to create for people with disabilities.

TAC is the primary supplier of air cargo nets to the USAF, according to the organisation's website. These cargo nets are used by the air force for load management on the 463L pallet used on C-5, C-17 and C-130 cargo aircraft.

Since 1984 TAC has performed a vital defence operational role by repairing damaged air cargo nets to like-new condition and manufacturing new nets to meet all of the demanding airlift requirements of the Air Force, officials said.
