New Brunswick Welcomes New Business

New Brunswick Mayor Jim Cahill and other leaders helped welcome Unitex to the community during the company’s grand opening event. Unitex executives discussed how the expansion into the community benefits the local job market. As the health and wellness industry sectors continue to grow in Middlesex County, the goal is to help lower the unemployment rate within New Brunswick and surrounding areas. Once fully operational, the new plant will employ approximately 300 local workers. Shown in the photo from left to right: Middlesex County Freeholder Charles E.
