Manufactory 4.0 “Makes” The News

Stanley Black & Decker's announcement of their new Manufactory 4.0 center garnered celebratory responses from numerous news outlets. Based in Hartford, CT, the 23,000 square foot Advanced Manufacturing Center of Excellence will serve as a hub for the latest advancements in IoT, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, 3-D printing, robotics and advanced materials.

“Mayor Luke Bronin said the opening of the Stanley Black & Decker center is an ‘enormous win’ for Hartford as officials seek to put the city at the center of innovation in industry.” –Hartford Courant

“The global leader will use some of the space to make improvements on their tools and cyber security. The rest of the space will be to help startup companies in advanced manufacturing grow their businesses.” –WFSB

 “Companies will co-locate at the Hartford accelerator site and have access to mentoring and resources to grow their ideas into viable businesses, and bring new technologies to market. Similar programs will be run in 2019 and 2020, with 30 potential startups completing the process.” –Hartford Business

 Jim Loree was quoted regarding the new center, “Strong urban cores, and in particular a vibrant capital city, are essential to Connecticut's ability to thrive, which is why we decided to locate this important new initiative in Hartford.”
