MicroCare Corp., a leading supplier of environmentally progressive cleaning technologies, officially opens its newest manufacturing facility on Production Court in New Britain, Connecticut. The facility consists of 15,000 square feet of manufacturing space, a quality lab and offices. Approximately 12 employees will work in the new location and it is expected to grow to approximately 25 people within the next few years, according to the company.

The ceremonial red ribbon was cut by New Britain Mayor, Erin Stewart, assisted by MicroCare CEO, Tom Tattersall. Also in attendance was Jay Tourigny, senior vice president, Steve LeFavbre, vice president-finance, Heather Gombos, vice president-operations and approximately 40 MicroCare employees and staff.

MicroCare was founded in 1983 in a small building in Bristol, Connecticut. The company started out formulating and packaging aerosol cleaners for the electronics industry, but the product line gradually expanded. In 2000, the company moved its primary manufacturing center to New Britain, Connecticut.

Operating at full capacity, additional space was needed to expand operations, the company says. The Production Court location is the company’s fifth operating facility, including a large logistics center in Rocky Hill and warehouses in Singapore and Brussels.

“This new facility is a big, multi-million-dollar bet on our future, our people and our town,” Tattersall says. “We are proof that manufacturing can survive and prosper in America.”
