LIMESTONE — The Maine Military Authority has won a $40 million contract to refurbish vehicles for the National Guard Bureau, allowing it to recall 26 laid-off workers.

Sen. Susan Collins, who made the announcement Tuesday, says the award is a “testament to the talented work force and quality craftsmanship” of workers in Limestone. Rep. Mike Michaud called it “a shot in the arm for the local economy.”

The Maine Military refurbishes Humvees for the National Guard and active-duty military.

Created in 1997, the company has refurbished more than 14,000 of the military vehicles at the former Loring Air Force Base in Limestone.
