Loring Industries specializes in equipment refurbishment.
They hired on 24 people.
Tim McCabe is the head of Business Development for Loring Industries.

Loring Industries also supports three other contracts - one with MCI Coach Busses, one with Casella Waste Management, and another for Fixed Route Operators for the State of Maine.
"We're walking before we run so a lot of the heavy duty so a lot of the tools we're getting as we have to have it, we're - running a business, you have to run it profitably or you won't run it, we aren't profiting yet but we will be, we'll do what's necessary as it becomes necessary." Says McCabe.
McCabe also says the goal is to expand significantly during the next year.
