Staffed by a productive and highly skilled workforce, 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.
