Electric Boat promises jobs, construction in exchange for state support
2 May 2018
New London — Gov. Dannel P. Malloy on Tuesday announced a "historic," long-term partnership between the state and Electric Boat that involves an $83 million investment by Connecticut, with a commitment from the submarine builder to add jobs and spend hundreds of millions on capital improvements in Groton.
The partnership will "build upon our investments that we've made with other defense contractors and quite frankly be supportive of a supply chain that touches every single portion of our state," Malloy said at a news conference at Fort Trumbull with a view of Electric Boat's construction bay, where a new fleet of attack submarines is being built, in the background.
