TAC is a nonprofit company that employs and cares for people with developmental or physical disabilities. In addition to making cargo nets for the Air Force, it repairs nets.
TAC won an initial contract to manufacture cargo nets in 2005. The contracts are often renewed, assuming the company continues to meet production goals and retains quality standards.
The nets are used to secure military and humanitarian aid cargo on pallets during shipment.
This award is the result of a sole-source acquisition. The contract came from the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center at Robins Air Force Base.
