Dielectric this fall plans to open a 33,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Lewiston, Maine, 25 miles north of its headquarters in Raymond.
The new plant will be used to meet increased demand stemming from the FCC’s repack of the television band. It will produce all UHF main and auxiliary TV antennas when opened, the company said.
About 50 people will work at the new facility. They will include a mix of new hires from the Lewiston area and long-time Dielectric employees, who in many instances will work at the new facility as well as at the Raymond headquarters, Dielectric said.
Manufacturing Manager Mike Spugnardi will oversee daily operations and report to Dielectric VP-GM Keith Pelletier.
