Augusta, ME – Governor Paul LePage and members of Maine's Congressional Delegation will announce the commitment of another exciting, high-tech company coming to the former Brunswick Naval Air Station (NASB), now known as Brunswick Landing: Maine’s Center for Innovation. Cianbro CEO Peter Vigue and the Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority will also join in the announcement.

The new addition to the Brunswick Landing community is a world-class maritime organization that serves the needs of its clients and the public interest by promoting the security of life, property, and the natural environment. The goal is achieved primarily through the development and verification of standards for the design, construction and operational maintenance of marine-related facilities. The organization uses state-of-the-art technology to accomplish its work, a fact that helps to make the infrastructure-rich facilities of the former air station an ideal match for the new tenant. The development will bring a host of challenging, high tech positions to Brunswick Landing, with the promise of additional high-quality jobs in the near future.

The public is welcome to attend.
