Stanley Black & Decker opened the state-of-the-art Manufactory 4.0 in downtown Hartford, CT. The Advanced Manufacturing Center of Excellence is located at One Constitution Plaza.
The 23,000-square-foot facility will serve as the epicenter for the company’s global Industry 4.0 “smart factory” initiative, housing a team of roughly 50 Industry 4.0 experts. They are focused on accelerating the company’s adoption of advanced manufacturing technologies and building upskilling programs for the digital-led manufacturing environment.
The center will also be an innovation hub for the local region, helping Hartford continue its evolution as a leading market for advanced manufacturing in the U.S.
Stanley Black & Decker’s Jim Loree says, “We are living in an era where the impact of technology has begun to exceed the ability of society to absorb the pace of change, and to succeed, companies and individuals need to be able to expand their capacity to absorb rapid change and adapt faster than ever before.”
