WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) announced contract electronics manufacturer Technical Manufacturing Corporation (TMC) in Durham is this week's "Murphy's Monday Manufacturer." Founded in 1985, TMC is a leading supplier of contract electronic manufacturing services for printed circuit board assemblies that are used in mission critical, high reliability and harsh environment applications for the aerospace and defense industries. TMC enjoys a broad customer base, servicing over 100 companies worldwide. Their largest customers include Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Boeing and Northrop Grumman. TMC is a woman-owned small business, and employs 20 people in their 20,000 square foot facility in Durham. 

TMC is one of the few contract electronics manufacturers in the country that is National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program (Nadcap) accredited, which is an industry management program where accredited companies must follow strict guidelines to produce products for the aerospace and defense industry. This allows TMC to provide printed circuit board assemblies to defense contractors. As the company continues to grow, they are working on providing services to United Technology Corporation (UTC), a Connecticut-based company, and also pursue opportunities to work with SpaceX and Virgin Galactic. TMC is also active in the Connecticut business community as members of the Connecticut Business & Industry Association (CBIA) and Middlesex Chamber of Commerce. 

“For almost 35 years, TMC has proven that Connecticut has the best manufacturers in the world. TMC is local but their products are used to keep us safe all around the world. I’m proud to highlight their work, and happy to see them continue to grow,” said Murphy. 

“Everyone at Technical Manufacturing Corporation is proud and excited to play a part in growing the manufacturing base so important to the economic  stability of our State,” said Fred Bonito, Vice President of TMC. 

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-made goods, the Act and the American Jobs Matter Act
