MILFORD – Today, U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) announced that Alinabal Holdings, Inc. will be recognized as “Murphy’s Monday Manufacturer”. Founded in 1960, the Alinabal Group of Milford is a diversified manufacturer with four distinct business divisions that manufacture products for the defense, aerospace, industrial, recreational, and medical industries. Alinabal’s 325 employees work out of three facilities – two in Milford and one in Kensington – and across more than 200,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehouse space.

The manufacturer’s four business units - Practical Automation, Inc., DACO Instruments, Engineered Products Group, and Motion Transfer Devices – serve prominent Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 companies, as well as the U.S. government. They are recognized around the world for producing a variety of items, such as thermal printers used in ticketing kiosk applications, advanced optical shutters and high performance indicators used in aviation applications, precision stampings and mechanical assemblies, rod end bearings, linkage assemblies, and custom motion transfer solutions.

Alinabal takes pride in their commitment to quality, which is implemented through their “Alinabal Total Improvement Process”(ATIP). The manufacturer established the ATIP to ensure that they constantly strive to improve the quality of work-life for their employees, employees’ growth and skills, the processes by which products are developed, and the service that they provide their customers. The company’s 55 years of dedication to progress and improvement among employees have undoubtedly led to their great success.

“If you’ve ever withdrawn money from an ATM, purchased a movie ticket from an automated kiosk, printed an airplane ticket, driven an ATV or motorcycle, mowed the lawn, or used fitness equipment, then chances are, you’ve used an Alinabal product”, said Murphy. “The ubiquity of Alinabal devices is spectacular, but it’s Alinabal’s persistent pursuit of employee satisfaction that makes them so unique. I’m proud that Connecticut is home to such a respectable company, and I’m excited to recognize them as one of our state’s distinct manufacturers.”

“Alinabal businesses face strong domestic and global competition on a daily basis,” said Michael Murphy, Vice President and General Manager of Alinabal. “We are extremely proud of our dedicated employees, who have eagerly embraced Continuous Improvement as the key to maintaining competitiveness, improving our products and services, and exceeding customer expectations.”

The manufacturing industry plays a crucial role throughout Connecticut communities, creating new jobs and accelerating our state’s economic recovery. Today, Connecticut’s 4,602 manufacturers account for 10.2% 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 21st Century Buy American Act and the American Jobs Matter Act
