Earl Industries Lease Agreement Approved

BREMERTON
Earl Industries LLC, the Portsmouth, Va.-based Navy ship repair company, will move into the Port of Bremerton’s industrial park.
Port commissioners Tuesday approved a $3,960-a-month lease, which buys the use of a 7,200-square-foot building for Earl Industries.
The company is expecting to win a contract from the Navy to perform repair and maintenance work on the big flattop USS Nimitz, due in to Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in December. The $250 million in repairs is expected to occur over 16 months.
Port Chief Executive Officer Cary Bozeman congratulated port real-estate director Tim Thompson for getting the new tenant, saying there were other competitors for the business.
In other action, commissioners gave final approval on the now-completed refurbishing of the 6,000-foot-long runway at Bremerton National Airport. The $3.2 million project that included repaving the runway and improving drainage was paid for almost entirely by the Federal Aviation Administration.
