Companies grow and create jobs with federal, state collaboration – by Steven King

 The Quonset Development Corporation (QDC) and J. Goodison Company recently announced a major expansion for their full service marine company’s operations at Quonset Business Park. The expansion will include the addition of an 820-metric-ton mobile boat hoist at a new ship repair facility on roughly six acres in the southeast of the Business Park. Once delivered in the spring of 2016, the “Marine Travelift 820 C” will be the largest lift in the Northeast.

“This development is another sign that Rhode Island is making a comeback,” said Governor Gina Raimondo. “The federal and QDC resources resulting in J. Goodison’s investments show that our state can help companies succeed here and bring more jobs to the Ocean State. More and more businesses are realizing that they can make it in Rhode Island.”
