AUGUSTA — Maine Gov. Paul LePage says a manufacturing company in the state is planning to expand its operations.

The Republican governor said that the Ntension Corporation of Hermon, a wholesale tension-fabric structures manufacturer, will expand this spring into a new 40,000 square-foot facility.

He says that growth will allow the company to create 21 new jobs over the next two years.

The new facility is expected to be completed in May. The company hopes to have between 80 and 90 workers by 2017.

LePage says his administration has been working closely with Ntension to help the company get the economic incentives that are allowing them to grow their company in Maine.
