Military equipment company breaks ground on new headquarters

NEWPORT, Vt. (AP) — A company that develops and builds equipment for military use has broken ground on its new U.S. headquarters in New Hampshire, a move that officials say will eventually bring jobs to its helmet manufacturing plant in Vermont.

Revision Military held its groundbreaking at Pease International Tradeport in Portsmouth on Monday.

The 47,000-square foot facility will host a variety of development labs, and the company’s CEO says it will be looking to hire dozens of engineers, technicians and manufacturing experts.

Revision representative Kelly Krayewsky tells The Caledonian Record the work done in Portsmouth will grow business in Newport and at its military optics manufacturing plant in Essex Junction.

She says the Newport plant is hiring and it will start manufacturing a new helmet design this year.
