BRUNSWICK — A Georgia-based medical products company is celebrating the official opening of its new manufacturing facility in Brunswick.

Maine Economic and Community Development Commissioner George Gervais says Molnlycke Health Care’s $47 million facility in Brunswick will result in 40 new jobs by the end of 2013 and more jobs next year. Gervais is planning to speak at the official opening on Tuesday.

When fully operational, the facility will produce wound care products for the U.S. market using foam produced at its Wiscasset plant.

Molnlycke’s new plant is located at the former Brunswick Naval Air Station, now called Brunswick Landing.
