Ohio firm seals Pentagon deal



The Associated Press

WASHINGTON - A northern Ohio company has been selected over a German firm for a $1 million contract to coat the Pentagon's outer walls with a sealer, Rep. Steve LaTourette said Thursday.

The Defense Department had initially awarded the contract to the German firm KEIM Mineral Systems, but LaTourette complained that a company in his hometown of Madison makes an identical sealer that is cheaper and just as good.

The Defense Department asked an independent engineering firm to review the two products and agreed to rebid the contract.
