One company is expanding and creating more manufacturing jobs in Connecticut.
Colt’s Manufacturing Company is purchasing its West Hartford headquarters and manufacturing facility and making new investments to expand operations and grow jobs in Connecticut.
The acquisition of this property is a key part of the company’s growth strategy and is part of a $23 million project by Colt that targets the retention of its current workforce of 600 employees and will lead to the creation of an additional 100 jobs at the location over the next five years.
In its ongoing support of firearms safety education, the company is initiating the following measures:
- Financial support for Project ChildSafe;
- Sponsorship of seminars in support of Connecticut law enforcement firearms safety initiatives;
- The inclusion of safety messaging in key marketing initiatives; and
- The addition of a safety section on the Colt website that will include a series of safety videos; a focus on safe firearms handling, safety at the range, and safe storage in the home; and links to key sources of additional safety information published by National Shooting Sports Foundation, National Rifle Association and other reputable sources.
