BRUNSWICK (AP) — A Swedish medical device maker is moving into space at the old Brunswick Naval Air Station, bringing about 50 jobs with the potential for more.
Molnlycke Health Care is locating a manufacturing facility in a 79,000 square foot building to make what essentially are high-tech bandages for wound care.
Company officials said Monday they chose Brunswick over spots in Europe and Asia because it already owns a smaller, more specialized plant in nearby Wiscasset.
The company plans to spend $50 million to make over a former military warehouse.
A company official told WMTW-TV if the company continues to grow, the Brunswick facility could eventually employ even more people.
With the addition of Molnlycke, Brunswick Landing now leases space to 22 businesses that employ about 175 people.
