Suppliers of goods and services to local military bases make up a chain that ext
Suppliers of goods and services to local military bases make up a chain that extends far beyond Kittery (Portsmouth Naval Shipyard), Brunswick (Brunswick Naval Air Station), and the Defense Finance and Accounting Service in Limestone, all of which are on a federal Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) list. The State Planning Office estimates Maine businesses will lose about $120 million in direct procurement if those facilities close. Most vendors wouldn't be devastated by the loss, although some fear the loss of business from other base suppliers. Maine Natural Gas's contract with Brunswick Naval Air Station allowed it to build a 14-mile pipeline and serve the Bath-Brunswick region. With details on businesses that might be affected and a breakdown of spending in Maine by BRAC-listed facilities.
