Redzone Wireless plans to add jobs in Rockland

ROCKLAND, Maine — Redzone Wireless plans to add 30 to 40 jobs in offices that will be created over the next few months.

An application was filed this week with the Rockland Code Enforcement Office by Breakwater Marketplace to renovate space on the third and fourth floors of the 91 Camden St. complex.

Michael Forcillo, vice president of sales and marketing for Redzone Wireless, said the company plans to expand to Rockland and have 30 to 40 jobs in those offices. The renovations, estimated to cost $60,000, are expected to be done in May.

Forcillo said the move to the new office space “is consistent with our growth plans as we expand broadband coverage and capacity in Maine over the next few years.”

Redzone had a small office in Rockland before its staff relocated early in 2015 to the company headquarters in downtown Camden in part of the former Knox Mill.

He said the Rockland expansion is part of the company’s ambitious plans as it seeks to provide wireless coverage to 90 percent of the state by 2018.

The Breakwater Marketplace already houses the University College at Rockland, offices of the Maine Department of Health and Human Services, Jensen’s Pharmacy and Courier Publications, along with smaller professional offices.
