Defense Contractor Sets Up Shop on County Road

Titan manufactures components for machine guns and
the marine industry. The company is one of many defense contractors to grow
since the United States invaded Iraq and Afghanistan; Brawn said Titan now
employs more than 70, up from six in 2001. He said the manufacturer plans to
continue to expand over the next two years and needed a building large enough to
accommodate that growth. "That particular building was the right size, the right
location and the right price," Brawn said. He declined to disclose the purchase
price. He said the Westbrook property was attractive because it's close to
Portland International Jetport and the Maine Turnpike. The facility was also
within commuting range of most company employees.
