BRUNSWICK — A company that makes parts for window roller shades is set to sign a lease and open a new 11,000-square-foot design lab in Brunswick that will create 10 new high-paying jobs.

Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority Executive Director Steve Levesque says he expects Stamford, Conn.-based RollEase Inc. to sign the lease next week.

When RollEase signs, it will be the eighth new company and 42nd overall to join the Brunswick Landing business park at the former U.S. Navy base that was closed in 2005. Those companies will employ as many as 750 by the end of the year.

Levesque tells The Times Record that RollEase is a “great fit” for the park.

RollEase designs, manufactures and markets manual operating systems and accessories for soft and hard window coverings, such as blinds.
