Company officials were joined at the groundbreaking by U.S. Senators Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan. Before they all donned hard hats and turned the soil with chromed shovels, Revision CEO Jonathan Blanshay said New Hampshire's workforce, proximity to Boston, and political climate, made it the perfect location for its U.S. Headquarters.
"In just over a year we will have a brand new, state of the art facility. It is going to house the most advanced soldier systems capability in the world, right here in New Hampshire."
Revision makes gear for military and law enforcement -- mostly helmets and goggles -- but also armor.
The company, which also operates sites in Canada, the United Kingdom, and Vermont, employs 400 people. It promises to bring up to 75 new jobs to Pease once its headquarters are complete.
