Yaphank, NY According to Frederick Braun III, chairman of the town of Brookhaven Industrial Development Agency (IDA), at the May 17th meeting the agency accepted an application from a Medford concrete contracting company that plans to expand. The company, Sunshine of East Coast Inc., currently at Dunton Ave., Medford, plans to construct a new building on a vacant site on Old Dock Rd. to accommodate its growing business. Construction would begin following approval of a site plan and the issuance of a building permit, expected in the third-quarter of this year. Construction is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2018 and is expected to cost $3.6 million.

The company, which constructs concrete foundations and supplies concrete materials to commercial projects, currently has 20 full-time employees and 60 part-timers. It anticipates adding five full-time jobs and 20 part-time positions within two years.

The application by a Sunshine real estate affiliate, Sunshine of East End Inc., is subject to IDA review, a public hearing and final approval. 

“We are pleased that Sunshine has decided to relocate within the Town of Brookhaven and increase its employment within the town,” said Braun.
