“This contract will support more than 200 precision manufacturing and engineering jobs in our two facilities in Connecticut. As a Connecticut manufacturer, we were assisted in this by our state leaders such as Lt. Governor Susan Bysiewicz, Chief Manufacturing Officer Colin Cooper, and Director Anne Evans from the U.S. Department of Commerce, who worked with us to advocate our bid at the highest levels. Their advocacy to the Mexican government for this contract was the essential piece that supported this bid,” said Boris Levin, Chief Executive Officer of Mott Corporation.
Lt. Governor Bysiewicz helped to bring together Mott Corporation, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Connecticut office, and the Office of the Mexican Consul General, to highlight the benefits of this partnership.
“I was so proud to work with the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Connecticut Office, the Consul General of Mexico, and Mott Corporation to help bring this important contract to fruition. This is just one example of how our state government under the leadership of our administration is a champion for Connecticut companies large and small by helping business owners enter new markets, create and sustain good-paying jobs, and grow their footprint,” said Lt. Governor Bysiewicz.
“It’s my pleasure to assist any matter that involves our common economic interests for the benefit of our countries. Mexico and the U.S. are partners and allies. Mott Corporation’s participation in Mexico is an example on how we build things together under the new USMC free trade agreement. Clearly, with economic cooperation, together we are stronger,” said Jorge Islas-López, Consul General of Mexico.
“Mott Corporation is a progressively managed company with significant employee engagement and world-class technology. It’s great to see the international market recognize the quality and value of their highly engineered products,” said Colin Cooper, the state’s Chief Manufacturing Officer.
