Maine Military Authority Awarded $40 Million Contract
The Maine Military Authority has won a $40 million contract to refurbish vehicles for the National Guard Bureau, allowing it to recall 24 laid-off workers. Sen. Susan Collins, who made the announcement Tuesday, says the award is a testament to the talented work force and quality craftsmanship of the workers in Limestone. The Maine Military refurbishes Humvees for the National Guard and active-duty military. Created in 1997, the company has refurbished more than 14,000 of the military vehicles at the former Loring Air Force Base in Limestone.
