Windham REGION

A business landscape fueled by natural beauty.

A productive present and a promising future.

Connecticut’s “quiet corner” is quintessentially New England in its authentic appearance and feel. The Windham region’s advanced manufacturing sector, however, is anything but quiet. The area is home to many companies that produce products for both the naval defense and aerospace industries. Also, within the bucolic landscape of classic New England villages, state parks and trails is a vibrant tourism sector comprised of first-class destinations for arts, entertainment, dining and lodging. Learn more about the region through the Windham Chamber of Commerce and the Northeastern CT Chamber of Commerce.
