Made in CT

What is Made in CT?

From aero engines to buttons, from medical devices to sports equipment, Connecticut is home to 5,000 manufacturers who employ nearly 170,000 people and generate more than 12.7 percent of the state’s GDP.

Staffed by the most productive and highly skilled workforce in the world, Connecticut manufacturers are a significant driver of innovation and exports, and account for more investments in research and development than any other sector.

As the Connecticut Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), CONNSTEP has developed the Made in CT Program to showcase the diversity of products and services of the Connecticut manufacturing industry – and to celebrate the companies who continue to make it in Connecticut. In cities and towns from Bridgeport to Putnam, manufacturing is the engine that powers the Connecticut economy.
