BRUNSWICK, Maine (AP) _ The agency that's redeveloping the former Brunswick Naval Air Station says it's ready to make a major jobs announcement.

The Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority says the announcement will be made Wednesday afternoon at Hangar 6, part of which is already leased by Kestrel Aviation. The agency is withholding details until the formal announcement.

The agency says 214 private sector jobs have been created and 260 acres and 24 buildings conveyed to the private sector as of this summer. And executive Director Steve Levesque says the agency is projecting nearly 400 jobs by the end of next year from the current mix of companies at Brunswick Landing.

Current companies with operations at the former base include Molnlycke Health Care, Maine Tool and Machine, Kestrel Aviation and Oxford Networks.
