Larson Applauds Expansion of Aerospace Manufacturing Operations in East Hartford
Senator Tim Larson (D-East Hartford) today applauded the news that Cyient, Inc., a multi-faceted aerospace engineering design and manufacturing firm is expanding its operations in East Hartford.
“Today’s news is more proof that our agreement with Sikorsky is a good investment that is already growing jobs up and down the supply chain in Connecticut’s aerospace manufacturing sector,” said Sen. Larson. “Cyient is a major employer in East Hartford, and a supplier for both Sikorsky and Pratt & Whitney. Now that Pratt & Whitney is headquartered in East Hartford, we are starting to see more and more companies like this clustering in our district.”
Governor Dannel P. Malloy announced today that Cyient, which currently employs 456 full time workers in Connecticut, plans to add 85 full-time jobs over the next three years.
Cyient recently relocated its United States headquarters to 99 East River Drive in East Hartford. The company is also in the process of expanding its delivery center located at the same site. In total, the company is taking up an additional 15,500 square feet to expand its operation and accommodate employee growth over the next three years.
Connecticut’s Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD), will support this project with a $500,000 loan. Cyient will use the funds to purchase machinery and equipment for the expansion.
