Novo Precision Spotlighted in Senator Murphy's "Murphy's Monday Manufacturer"
The Senator and his staff were so impressed with what they saw at Novo and the story behind the company's growth, that they chose Novo to be featured on the Senator's website as part of "Murphy's Monday Manufacturer"
U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) announced that precision wires and machine manufacturer Novo Precision, LLC in Bristol is this week's "Murphy's Monday Manufacturer."
Novo Precision continues to grow and expand. They recently launched a new project in the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning industry. The project has the potential to add 10-15 jobs in the next six months and was designed by their engineers in cooperation with MicroCare, a company in New Britain. 90% of the components are purchased locally from companies in Connecticut, and 100% are purchased in the United States. In 2019, the company plans to develop the Novo Research and Development Center. This will enable them to develop new products and capabilities to add to their current equipment line. Murphy visited Novo Precision in October and toured the facility with President Bill Hazard.
"I was thrilled to visit Novo Precision this fall and was very impressed by the innovative products Bill and his team have been working on. And their commitment to buying products right here in Connecticut is crucial to growing our economy," said Murphy. "Novo is still young, but they have already proven why Connecticut is home to the best manufacturing has to offer. I am excited to see what they come up with next."
"We are looking forward to continued growth over the next several years. Novo Precision will continue to invest in our people, processes, and in developing new products. Both the City of Bristol & State of Connecticut have been great partners in supporting our growth through matching fund programs, real estate abatements, and their apprenticeship program. The manufacturing economy is also in a pro-U.S. resurgence which has benefited us greatly," said Bill Hazzard, president of Novo Precision.
The manufacturing industry plays a crucial role throughout Connecticut communities, creating new jobs and accelerating the state's economic recovery. Today, Connecticut's 4,600 manufacturers account for 10% of the state's jobs and 87% of the state's total exports. In order to protect and grow manufacturing jobs in Connecticut, Murphy has introduced two pieces of legislation that aim to strengthen existing standards and prioritize the purchase of American Goods.
