CLINTON, CT — U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) recently announced that BAUSCH Advanced Technologies, Inc. (BAT) in Clinton was a "Murphy's Monday Manufacturer" honoree.
Founded in 2004 and working out of a 38,000 square foot facility, BAT specializes in the manufacturing of customized systems for primary packaging of syringes, cartridges and vials for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry. Over its 15-year history, BAT has become a leader in North American markets and built relationships with some of the world's leading pharmaceutical companies, according to a news release.
"I'm proud to highlight Bausch Advanced Technologies this week for their innovative thinking and commitment to Connecticut's workforce," Murphy said. "Bausch's products are made right here in Connecticut and exported around the world. I'm looking forward to watching them continue to grow, and my office is happy to help in any way we can."
BAT has seen tremendous growth over the past few years, increasing their staff from 37 to 83 in just two years, and recently completing a 13,000 square foot building that will be home to a new Bausch packaging consumable division and production space for the new patent pending surface decontamination PUV units.
