BRUNSWICK, Maine (AP) - A former Navy navigator is moving part of his business from Virginia to the former Brunswick Naval Air Station in Maine.
The CEO of Tempus Jets, Scott Terry, was familiar with the air station because he used to fly P-3 Orions from it. The jet overhaul work moving to Maine is now being done at Newport News International Airport.
Steve Levesque from the Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority says the Maine base offers the business more space to expand. The company plans to hire 25 workers by year's end, and to double that next year. Levesque says there's the potential for up to 200 jobs.
Levesque says the company fits perfectly with redevelopment agency's plans to target aviation-related businesses.
Tempus is based at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport in South Carolina.
