HEYtex USA, located in Pulaski, Virginia, agreed to pay $3 million to resolve allegations that it violated the False Claims Act between January 1, 2013, and December 31, 2018 when it knowingly sold fabrics to the United States military that failed to meet certain required specifications. In the settlement, the United States alleged HEYtex caused false claims to be submitted in connection with fabrics manufactured for military and personal equipment. An employee of HEYtex USA, who later came forward as a whistleblower, brought information regarding falsified test results to the attention of former company management, but the whistleblower was initially ignored. The civil settlement includes the resolution of claims brought under the qui tam or whistleblower provisions of the False Claims Act against HEYtex USA.
