Marine systems manufacturer Jered Brown Brothers has leased a vacant 44,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Brunswick, Ga., in order to accommodate its growing marine equipment business and to expand its capabilities in the manufacture of large structural fabrications and hydraulic assemblies.
The company's new facility—on a 10-acre site in an industrial complex on the Brunswick River—is located adjacent to the Georgia Port Authority's deep-water facilities in Brunswick.
Brunswick is approximately 75 miles from Savannah to the north and Jacksonville to the south.
Jered specializes in shipboard equipment for the U.S. Navy, including elevators for aircraft, cargo and weapons, ship steering systems, submarine bow planes, anchor windlasses and specialized handling systems.
Jered president R.J. (Rick) Edger said the facility will provide his company with needed water shipment capability and floorspace for its marine fabrication work. Besides the new facility, Jered has two other plants in the metro Detroit area with a combined total of 150,000 square feet.
