Creating Jobs in the Moosehead Region

When a Montana company that specializes in the manufacture of fur hats and other fur products was looking to relocate to the Moosehead Region the MLREDC, in collaboration with the Town of Greenville and Maine Dept. of Economic Development, was able to negotiate a lease of the Greenville Business Center that would bring new jobs to the area.
