MARINETTE, WI (WTAQ) - A northeast Wisconsin company will provide foam for military firefighters to use.

Tyco Fire Products of Marinette was awarded a $13.7 million contract to produce special foam at its Marinette plant.

Tyco beat out two other bidders for a two-year contract.

It also provided a boost for Wisconsin's business with the federal government, which dropped by 24 percent during the fiscal year which ended a month ago.

The Wisconsin Procurement Institute said federal departments spent just over $3 billion for goods and services from the Badger State in the past year. That ranked Wisconsin 29th in funding for federal contracts, down one place from the year before.
