The CONNSTEP Blog
We’re happy to showcase Lex Products Corporation as this week’s Made in CT manufacturer. Having worked with Lex since 2005, it’s always interesting to learn of the diverse places that their products are being used – from the streets of New York City on the set of Sex and the City II, to the military’s use in Iraq and Afghanistan, to the emergency operations centers supporting the restoration after Hurricane Katrina – Lex’s power distribution systems provide dependable power when its not easy to come by.
Started in 1989, Lex has grown to employ 200 in 54,000 square foot Shelton facility. Providing solutions to the military, industrial, construction and entertainment industries, Lex is continuously innovating with both their product and their process through their investment in Lean Manufacturing – as Jack Crane, CONNSTEP’s Director of Growth and Innovation Services added, “Lex Products turned to CONNSTEP in 2005 to assist them in improving processes at all phases of their business: quality systems, engineering, production, and product development. When Lex finally had to move to larger quarters to accommodate growth, CONNSTEP assisted in that move. This partnership has been mutually beneficial, helping CONNSTEP meet its mission to aid economic development in Connecticut by making manufacturers more competitive and helping Lex benefit from the various services and support available in the state.”
