HARTFORD – U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) announced on Monday that Indeco North America of Milford is this week’s “Murphy’s Monday Manufacturer.” Indeco North America was founded in 1990 in Bridgeport, Connecticut. After moving operations to Stratford, Connecticut, Indeco moved once more in 2006 to an 80,000 square foot facility in Milford where the company has been headquartered ever since. Indeco manufactures hydraulic breakers, steel shears, compactors, pulverizers, and other equipment for construction, recycling, and mining applications. Indeco’s products are used by many companies, including John Deere, Volvo, Komatsu, Caterpillar, and more.
Indeco employs 27 workers out of their Milford facility, and is currently looking to hire an additional CNC (computer numeric controlled) machinist. The Milford company is a subsidiary of Indeco ind. S.p.A. in Italy.
Murphy said, “Indeco is helping our economy stay in motion – their products are used to build new roads and riverways, and they employ more than two dozen Connecticut workers. I’m excited to see Indeco continue to grow their manufacturing capabilities. My office is here to help in any way we can.”
The manufacturing industry plays a crucial role throughout Connecticut communities, creating new jobs and accelerating our 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 BuyAmerican.gov Act and the American Jobs Matter Act.
