Guard officials to visit Maine repair company

By From Staff and Wire Reports, Special to the BDN

LIMESTONE, Maine — The acting director of the Army National Guard and several other officials will visit a Maine company that overhauls Humvees and other military equipment.

On Friday, a delegation led by Maj. Gen. Raymond Carpenter will tour the Maine Military Authority at the request of Sen. Susan Collins, a member of the Armed Services Committee.

Collins wants to ensure that there is adequate work for Limestone-based company.

Collins said the Maine Military Authority consistently performs this work at a lower cost than the Army’s own depots, saving money for taxpayers. It employs 370 workers.
