GUSC on track in Carrabelle

On Thursday, June 5, Gulf Unmanned Systems Center CEO Bruce McCormack signed the closing papers for the purchase of the old Gulf State Bank complex on US 98 in Carrabelle, which is now headquarters for GUSC.

On the same day, GUSC finalized the lease on the old Hexaport factory on Airport Road which is now GUSC operations center.

At the city meeting held later that evening, GUSC Chief Financial Officer Lisa Spooner told the assembly that GUSC now has 10 fulltime employees. Six are from Carrabelle and all reside in Franklin County.

Spooner said GUSC will now begin work on landscaping for both headquarters and operations center and will locate a contractor to link the two facilities with secure fiber optic cable.

McCormack said he is in discussion with several potential clients.
