Polamer Precision, an aerospace manufacturing firm, plans to add 200 jobs in New Britain.
The company moved its headquarters to the city this spring after expanding from Newington.
Mayor Erin Stewart said Polamer Precision continues to grow.
“They’re looking at expanding their relationship with GE, and hopefully soon,” said Stewart. “(They are) building an additional building on top of the one they just built and spent so much money on to accommodate all those extra contracts.”
The company currently has about 100 employees. About 75 percent are residents of New Britain.
It’s still too soon to know what type of jobs will be available.
“I think it’s great to get new jobs, everybody needs jobs. There’s a lot of people that I know that can’t get a job so I think it’s great. The more opportunities the better,” said New Britain resident Liz Watson.
The expansion also earned Polamer Precision the city’s “Beautification Award” this week.
“Taking what was once an empty parcel of land building this world class facility, but also employing residents of New Britain to helping New Britain become a beautiful place,” said Stewart.
The new jobs will become available over the next four years.
