Officials broke ground Friday on a multimillion-dollar manufacturing facility in Brevard.

The facility will be the new home of SylvanSport, a Brevard-based outdoor equipment company founded in 2004.

SylvanSport officials said the company expects to double its workforce in the new building. They say the center will also serve as the company's international headquarters.

"It's always been my dream to create a company that could utilize our great outdoor surroundings and blend that with a quality manufacturing business and great lifestyle for me, my family, our employees," founder and CEO Tom Dempsey said.
