MicroCare opens new manufacturing facility
MicroCare Corp., the world leader in environmentally-progressive critical cleaning, officially opened its newest manufacturing facility today on Production Court in New Britain, CT. The facility consists of 15,000 square feet of manufacturing space, a quality lab and offices. Approximately twelve employees will work in the new location initially and it is expected to grow to around 25 within the next few years given MicroCare’s record of growth. The ceremonial red ribbon was cut by New Britain Mayor, Erin Stewart, assisted by MicroCare Chief Operating Officer Tom Tattersall. Also in attendance was Jay Tourigny, Senior Vice President, and Heather Gombos, Vice President-Operations.
The company was founded in 1983 in a small building in Bristol, CT. The company formulated and packaged aerosol cleaners for the electronics industry but gradually expanded. In 2000, the company moved its primary manufacturing center to John Downey Drive, New Britain, CT. Since this facility is operating at full capacity, additional space was needed to expand operations. The Production Court location is the company’s fifth operating facility, including a large logistics center in Rocky Hill and warehouses in Singapore and Brussels.
“The new facility is a big, multi-million dollar bet on our future, our people and our town,” Mr. Tattersall said. “We are proof that manufacturing can survive and prosper in America.” MicroCare products are used in a wide variety of industries, such as electronics, metal finishing, transportation, fiber optics, medical devices and aerospace. MicroCare ships products globally.
“We are thrilled that MicroCare has chosen to increase their presence in our City,” said Mayor Erin. E. Stewart. “We know that when our local businesses thrive, our community prospers. I’d like to congratulate MicroCare on their success and wish them continued growth.”
