ELLINGTON- State Rep. Christopher Davis (R-57) recently toured Merrill Industries, a premier packaging business located in Ellington.
Merrill Industries founded in 1973, moved from West Springfield, Massachusetts to its current location in 1985. Merrill manufactures packaging for a wide-range of industries from medical to Colt firearms.
Rep. Davis said, “Our local and state economies rely on the success of small businesses, especially our small manufacturers. Merrill Industry has a solid business model and is planning to grow. As a state, we need to look at them for insight on how we can grow our economy and create more jobs. I will continue to fight for our small businesses and work to create policies that will move Connecticut towards becoming a business-friendly environment.”
