Announcing New State Investments in New Britain

new britainThis week, I was happy to join my colleagues in New Britain's legislative delegation in announcing the imminent approval of state investment in the city. This new funding will be used to help us grow jobs, fight homelessness and honor our veterans.

Polamar Precision, Inc., a New Britain-based manufacturer of engine and airframe components, will receive $500,000 in grants and a $1.9 million loan. These funds will assist Polamar with machinery and equipment for the expansion of its facilities in New Britain. As a result of this expansion, the company will retain 100 jobs and create 200 new jobs within three years.

Another loan will be made available to a housing manufacturer in New Britain to assist with the development of new housing units. This $1.9 million loan will be used to develop 14 new units, including 12 affordable units of rental housing at 477 Columbus Boulevard in New Britain. Additionally, the Friendship Service Center of New Britain, Inc. will receive a $2.1 million grant to assist with the construction of eleven units of supportive housing at 180 North Street in New Britain.

Finally, a $300,000 grant will be provided to the city of New Britain for the construction of a monument to the 65th Infantry Regiment. Members of this regiment, nicknamed "The Borinqueneers," have fought in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the post-9/11 military conflicts. The Borinqueneers were the first body of native troops in Puerto Rico to fight in the United States Army.
