About Harbor Technologies, LLC
Harbor Technologies, with offices in Brunswick, Maine, and Oslo, Norway, was founded during the summer of 2003 to fill the demand for environmentally friendly composite building products used for marine infrastructure. Harbor Technologiesâ€™ composites are used in the manufacturing of docks, piers, marinas, sea walls, pilings, and most recently, to build bridge beams as an alternative to heavy steel.
In 2008, Harbor Technologies tripled the size of its manufacturing space to 30,000 square feet, and added state-of-the-art pultrusion machinery to produce pilings of any length. The company is now 40 employees strong and expects to add 10 new employees this year based largely on the success of its composite piling sales to the U.S. Navy and Army Corps of Engineers.
