Brunswick welcomes new tenant to former Navy base

BRUNSWICK — Construction of a new manufacturing building at the former Navy base in Brunswick are complete, and a company based in Sweden is ready to move into its new headquarters.

The Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority, which is overseeing the redevelopment of the former Brunswick Naval Air Station, will hand over the keys to the building on Friday.

Molnlycke Health Care, a Swedish medical device and wound care manufacturer, expects to create about 50 new jobs once its manufacturing facility is fully up and running later this year.

The MRRA recently competed $15 million of work on the 79,000-square-foot facility for Molnlycke. The company will lease the facility.

Friday’s ceremony at Brunswick Landing will begin at 11 a.m. at the new building on Admiral Fitch Avenue.
