AUGUSTA, Maine — Maine Gov. Paul LePage is joining redevelopment officials in announcing that another private company plans to set up shop at the Brunswick Naval Air Station when it closes.
The governor’s office describes the yet-to-be-named company as “a world-class maritime organization” that will bring an undetermined number of “high-tech positions” to Brunswick. A formal announcement will be made Thursday afternoon at the State House in Augusta.
The 3,200-acre Navy base isn’t slated to close until the end of next month, but redevelopment officials already have secured commitments from companies that plan to create more than 500 jobs.
