MicroCare Corp, a specialist supplier of cleaning products for critical cleaning, has opened its newest manufacturing facility in New Britain, Connecticut, USA.

MicroCare products are used in a wide variety of industries, such as electronics, metal finishing, transportation, fiber optics, medical devices and aerospace. The company ships products globally.

The new facility consists of 15,000 ft2 of manufacturing space, a quality lab and offices. Approximately 12 employees will work in the new location initially and it is expected to grow to around 25 within the next few years.

The ceremonial red ribbon was cut by New Britain Mayor, Erin Stewart, assisted by MicroCare Chief Operating Officer Tom Tattersall. Also in attendance was Jay Tourigny, Senior Vice President, and Heather Gombos, Vice President-Operations.

The company was founded in 1983 in a small building in Bristol, CT. The company formulated and packaged aerosol cleaners for the electronics industry but gradually expanded.

In 2000, the company moved its primary manufacturing center to John Downey Drive, New Britain, CT. Since this facility is operating at full capacity, additional space was needed to expand operations.

The Production Court location is the company’s fifth operating facility, including a large logistics center in Rocky Hill and warehouses in Singapore and Brussels.
