WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) announced precision machine and aerospace manufacturer Admill Machine in New Britain is this week's "Murphy's Monday Manufacturer." Founded in 1988, Admill Machine specializes in complex 3D milling, turning, and wire EDM. Their focus on lean manufacturing practices has allowed them to develop cellular manufacturing and flow lines that have kept them competitive in this global market place. Their products support the aerospace and power generation industries, and their largest customers are Pratt & Whitney and ITP Aero. The company has 140 employees and works out of two facilities in New Britain: a 36,000 square foot headquarters and a 19,000 square foot plant that opened this year during their 30th anniversary.
Admill is active in the New Britain community, routinely working with Central Connecticut State University's engineering program to provide internship and work opportunities to students. The company has averaged 30% yearly growth over the past 3 years, and with the current demands in the aircraft industry, does not expect to slow down.
“The aerospace industry in Connecticut is booming, and it’s because of companies like Admill Machine. Admill manufacturers aircraft parts and equipment used to keep our country safe. I want to congratulate them on celebrating 30 years of manufacturing and service to New Britain,” said Murphy.
“Admill Machine benefits greatly by being in ‘Aerospace Alley’. Most everything that we would require to fulfill an OEM requirement can be found within a 70 mile radius of New Britain. This includes raw materials, coatings, heat treat, etc. The collection of expertise in our small area cannot be matched in the same size anywhere in the world,” said Bob Murphy, Sales Manager.
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 BuyAmerican.gov Act and the American Jobs Matter Act.
