Defense Directory

The Michigan Defense Center (MDC) connects military buyers with military manufacturers capable of meeting their needs. The highlight of this site is the Defense Capabilities Directory, which is populated with a vast resource of material and service providers. The MDC is a defense contract management agency that stands ready to provide a direct connection between military buyers and suppliers of everything from weapons and munitions to fasteners and CARC painters.

For Military Buyers – Department of Defense and Defense Contractors
The Defense Capabilities Directory allows you to find defense ready companies who have the capabilities you need and the capacity to perform quickly. This directory lists manufacturers that are ready to support defense industry contracts, and uses a flexible search engine that should satisfy most of your requirements. Each defense ready company included in this directory works directly with a regional Procurement Center, which has collaborated with them to ensure accuracy in their listed manufacturing capabilities.

This directory is only for the use of those involved in defense industry contracting, primarily military buyers from the Department of Defense (DoD) and prime contractors. Defense industry buyers can request a login to gain access to the Defense Capabilities Directory. If you have questions about the site that are not answered in the Defense Capability Directory FAQs, please submit questions or comments of your own.

If you are a military buyer with an urgent supply chain need, please email or call (800) 946-6829. You will connect with our capture team, which stands ready to assist.
