Some good news for Gulf County - JOBS!

The St. Joe Company today announced that it will lease 20 acres of its former paper mill site in Port St. Joe to Eastern Shipbuilding Group (ESG) of Panama City. ESG plans to expand its existing shipbuilding, vessel construction and repair and industrial steel fabrication operations to Port St. Joe, according to a press release.

ESG's Port St. Joe facility is immediately adjacent to one of only 14 state-authorized deep water ports in Florida. The Port St. Joe facility will enable ESG to meet its current and emerging contracts for vessel manufacturing requirements and has the potential to create many new jobs in Port St. Joe. In order to perform these contracts, ESG is already in the process of hiring 500 new employees who will join ESG's current workforce.
