SNOW HILL, MARYLAND – MAY 19, 2020 – Advisor Meredith Mears recently secured a +/- 40,000 square foot lease for Hardwire LLC inside a Worcester County owned commercial building along Route 12 in Snow Hill. Hardwire’s further expansion into the County demonstrates the company’s commitment to their community by bringing 100+ new jobs to the Eastern Shore in a time of need.

Hardwire LLC specializes in the development and testing of military-grade armor protection for ground vehicles, aircraft, boats, and personnel. Partnering with Worcester County to lease commercial space at this time is an indicator of their commitment to public safety. This additional space addresses a vital storage need, as Hardwire LLC ramps up operations to provide our nation’s healthcare workers with face shields and other personal protective equipment (PPE) in light of COVID-19.

“Hardwire’s expansion coincides with a time when our community craves signs of economic growth,” said Mears. “George and Emily Tunis and the entire Hardwire team have always been true partners in the community. Worcester County is sure to further realize the benefits of their choice in location as they work together to meet the needs of people throughout the COVID-crisis.”

As a result of her deep and trusted relationships with local governments and municipalities, Mears represented both Hardwire LLC and Worcester County in this transaction. Mears continually serves as a trusted resource to the community and has invaluable knowledge backed by years of experience in real estate and economic development.

“We’ve worked with Merry in the past – she consistently produces great results,” said George Tunis, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Hardwire LLC. “The space she guided us to fits our needs perfectly, and the lease was executed swiftly, with ease. We look forward to working together in the future.”
