BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) – A new company will soon be located in Brunswick County, bringing with it about 50 jobs over the next couple of years.

According to Economic Development Director Jim Bradshaw, 33rd Strike Group will open up shop in the Brunswick Industrial Warehouse Complex near Navassa.

The company is part of the catamaran boat building industry. A company representative said the company's mission is to bring affordable boating back to the market place in the form of a quality aluminum catamaran.

According to a spokesperson, 33rd Strike Group officials chose to locate in Brunswick County based on its connections to major highways, proximity to the port and the quality of life in the area.

The new facility is expected to open May 1.
