State Rep. Ben McGorty of Shelton and incoming Connecticut Business and Industry Association CEO Joe Brennan recently visited EAO Corp.’s North American headquarters in Shelton.

The tour was also a part of the “CT20x17” initiative to grow business and create jobs in Connecticut.

McGorty and Brennan met with company employees and leadership to discuss how to strengthen the manufacturing industry.

“It’s important for our political and business leaders to see first-hand the innovation occurring in our state and country,” said Lance A. Scott, president of EAO.

EAO moved its North American headquarters from Milford to Shelton in January, as part of a strategic decision to increase manufacturing capabilities in the United States. The company received funding from the state’s Small Business Express program.

“Companies like EAO are setting the example for Connecticut businesses that are helping to grow our economy,” McGorty said.

The Switzerland-based EAO is a manufacturer of human machine interface systems and components for the transportation, machinery, heavy-duty and specialty vehicle, medical and automotive industries.
