Site Selection

Groton is home to a dynamic business environment. From our emerging start-up ecosystem to our anchor institutions, Groton offers businesses of all types and sizes a place to connect and grow. This is the home of US Naval Submarine Base New London, the Global Research and Development campus of Pfizer, Inc., and the submarine construction facilities of the Electric Boat Division of General Dynamics, Inc. Other industries in our town range from a traditional fishing boat fleet to advanced medical supply manufacturing. In total, over 1,000 businesses call Groton home.

With multiple I-95 interchanges, a general aviation airport offering business services including air charter and hangar parking and two Amtrak stations just minutes away, Groton's transportation facilities are largely unaffected by the traffic congestion that afflicts many New England towns.

Within Groton, over 500 acres of privately held industrial land are available, including locations adjacent to I-95. These sites provide a setting to accommodate a wide range of uses and business sizes. A positive business attitude in Groton is supported by the availability of sites and facilities, an ongoing permitting streamline effort, and local and state incentive and support programs
