The company has seen a workforce increase by an astonishing additional 130 people and is continuing to grow rapidly thanks to long term contracts with major OEM’s who have embraced the fresh start of the company.

 The Senator and executive guests from the DECD, the Town of Farmington and Simsbury bank all bore witness to the high volume manufacturing capabilities and the latest inspection techniques that the company uses.

At the close of the visit he held an extremely interactive ‘town hall’ forum. The Senator spoke enthusiastically about the Aerospace industry in Connecticut giving inspirational advice to the attendees who gave the Senator a series of great questions that opened up some great discussion on the points raised. The discussions spanned a range of topics from education and taxation through to long-term career prospects in the Aerospace industry.
