Montgomery company gets defense contract

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Montgomery Marketing Inc. said it has been awarded a five year contract by the U.S. Defense Department to manufacture pop-up Bed Nets.

MMI said Monday the contract is worth $25 million.

The Bed Net is a tent-like structure used to ward off insects.

The company said its tents are treated with permethrin, a synthetic chemical used as an insecticide and insect repellant.

MMI said its Catoma brand tents have been used by USDA forest firefighters and U.S. military special forces since 1993.
