C&L Aerospace, a global aviation services company, is celebrating the completion of its new $5 million headquarters expansion in Bangor, paving the way for more jobs and work.

The Bangor Daily News reported that the aviation services company unveiled its new 120,000-square-foot building in a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday. The expanded space will provide more room than its original 40,000-square foot hangar facility.

Bath Iron Works expects to hire approximately 600 people by the end of the year.

The Kennebec Journal reported the large wave of hirings will help the naval contractor work on six U.S. Navy destroyers simultaneously. The hiring wave will bring BIW to almost 6,000 workers for the first time in nearly 10 years. "That is more [work] than we have dealt with in a long, long time," Edward Kenyon, manager of a destroyer program, told the newspaper.

The Bangor Daily News has sold its Main Street headquarters to Cross Insurance.

The sale will allow the insurance company to move its 75 Bangor employees from its Gilman Road building to the nearly 63,000 square-foot building on Main Street, according to a press release. TheBDN is currently in the process of finding a new home while the two companies share office space for several months. The sales price is not being disclosed.
