BRUNSWICK, Maine (AP) - Bath Iron Works plans to build a 20,000-square-foot building to replace the existing “blast and paint” building at the Hardings plant in Brunswick.

The Bangor Daily News reports that plans submitted to Brunswick’s planning department propose a new building on the 28-acre site.

The application reports that the current building and equipment are more than 45 years old, and that aging equipment has caused manufacturing delays.

The Hardings plant handles steel fabrication for the shipyard. Large pieces are bent and shaped before being sent to Bath for assembly.

The defense contractor, a subsidiary of General Dynamics, builds warships for the Navy. It has about 5,600 workers at sites in Bath and Brunswick.
