Hunting Dearborn to create up to 60 new jobs in Oxford County

Hunting Dearborn, Inc. is expanding its manufacturing facility in Oxford County. The company, considered an industry leader in deep hole drilling and machining of precision tubular components, was certified for a Maine Department of Economic & Community Development incentive package designed to assist the company’s upcoming expansion in Fryeburg. Hunting Dearborn’s investment is expected to lead to the creation of up to 60 jobs over the next five years.

“Maine’s economy is continuing to grow, and this expansion is just another example of what is happening across our state,” said Governor Paul R. LePage. “This is what happens when government partners with private industry, creating a business-friendly climate that encourages and appreciates private investment and job creation. Congratulations to Hunting Dearborn. I thank them for choosing to invest in our state and provide more Mainers with good-paying careers and the opportunity to prosper.”

Hunting Dearborn’s Chief Financial Officer Robert Newton spoke about the competitiveness of the DECD incentives. “They were clearly an essential ingredient in our decision to further invest in Maine,” said Newton. “Our interaction with DECD and Governor LePage Account Executive Brian Doyle was seamless and an overall positive experience. We’re hoping to have shovels in the ground sometime later this month.”

Expanding the existing manufacturing facility in Fryeburg will allow the company to meet increased demand for its products and services both here in the U.S. and overseas. Hunting Dearborn manufactures sophisticated machined products for the oil and gas, and turbine engine industries. The company currently employs about 250 people in Fryeburg.
