POCOMOKE, Md.- Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan paid a visit to Maryland's Eastern Shore on Tuesday, touring several local businesses in Worcester County. The purpose of the visit was to put a spotlight on a few businesses. 

Hogan toured Pocomoke City's Hardwire Armor Systems, accompanied by Sen. Jim Mathias and Del. Carl Anderton. Hardwire's Owner, George Tunis talked about the roots of the company with  Hogan and showed him several demonstrations of their new armor technology.

Some of the other things discussed were jobs, business growth and how some of the armor is being used locally. Gov. Hogan talked about his tour experience at the facility. 

 "It's the first time I got to see it up close and personal and it's just amazing, not only are you now providing a lot of important and high paying jobs here in Worcester County, but they're doing some incredible work that is going to save the lives of some of our military and police officers and others," the governor said. 

Hogan's tour of Hardwire is one of several local business stops he made on Tuesday. Hogan said the state will be partnering with the company and helping its growth in Worcester County.
