Anthony Burich, 55, managing member of Oregon-based Monolite Composites, wants t
Anthony Burich, 55, managing member of Oregon-based Monolite Composites, wants to start Maine Monolite in Bath and make it one of the state's largest employers. Burich's wife, Jane Kelley, grew up in Millinocket. The product, a membrane coating for composites, can supposedly withstand intense heat, corrosion, and ballistic damage better than traditional materials. A group including Bath officials and business people is working on the proposed start-up, which they hope might replace the area's lost manufacturing jobs. Burich hopes a network of employee-owned Maine companies will become individually licensed to manufacture Monolite applications, perhaps in the marine, military, and construction industries. With details on potential funding options and Burich's checkered career.
