A Bethel-based manufacturer will stand among the biggest names in aerospace at the Farnborough International Airshow, taking place next week in England, thanks to a little help from the state.
Connecticut Coining, which employs about 50 people at its Trowbridge Drive facility, will send two representatives to the show to display its products and drum up global business. The Farnborough International Airshow will feature 1,500 exhibitors, including the likes of Boeing and Airbus, from 52 countries. It is expected to attract about 200,000 visitors.
The Bethel company will send CEO Greg Marciano and international sales representative Marlene Gaberel. About 25 to 30 percent of Connecticut Coining’s business comes from the aerospace industry, Gaberel said. The company also serves industries such as defense and health care.
