Cianbro Expansion 

(AP) Maine Governor John Baldacci and other dignitaries attended Cianbro Corp.’s formal opening of the Brewer site that was formerly occupied by Eastern Fine Paper.

Cianbro redeveloped the site on the banks of the Penobscot River, where it plans to produce equipment for the $5 billion expansion of the Texas refinery by Motiva Enterprises, a joint venture between Shell Oil Co. and Saudi Aramco. Cianbro’s new site is expected to produce 50 large modules weighing 500 tons each.

The Pittsfield-based company’s new site is expected to employ 500 skilled workers.
