GOLDEN — A Mississippi company has a contract to make up to $55.3 million worth of bug-repellent uniform coats for the Army.

The Pentagon said in a news release Golden Manufacturing Co. Inc. of Golden, will be making the combat uniform coats from fabric treated with the insecticide Permethrin (pur-METH-rihn).

The work is to be completed within a year.

It says a firm in Puerto Rico, AFI LLC of Camuy, has a $43.3 million contract for Army combat uniform trousers made from similarly treated cloth.

Both contracts use defense working capital funds from fiscal 2013 through fiscal 2014, for the Defense Logistics Agency Troop Support in Philadelphia, Pa.
