THOMASTON, CT – Last week, Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) joined managers, employees, and workforce development leaders at the Ward Leonard Electric facility, as well as aerospace components manufacturer Pegasus in Middletown, to spotlight a $10 million federal investment in Connecticut’s advanced manufacturing workforce. Connecticut’s Workforce Alliance and Northwest Regional Workforce Investment Board were awarded $4.97 million and $5 million, respectively, by the U.S. Department of Labor.

Each company, in conjunction with local workforce development organizations, community colleges and chambers, will use these funds to train and hire workers in high-growth, competitive sectors. A report by the Center for Regional Economic Competitiveness stated that manufacturing, including advanced manufacturing requiring increased levels of training and education, was Connecticut’s fourth largest hiring sector last year.
