Berlin, CT - May 7, 2014 - Sirois Tool broke ground on April 25th for a 5,000 square foot expansion of their existing 20,000 square foot manufacturing space.

While keeping some of its new space available for projected growth, both for internal use as well as for future strategic acquisitions, they will immediately expand their electrical discharge machining (EDM) and wire EDM departments. They are also planning for new improvements to their consolidated assembly, inventory and shipping departments, as well as an enlarged inspection area and additional office space.

In support of this expansion, Sirois Tool has been approved for a Small Business Express Program Matching Grant from DECD. Their growth includes the addition of several positions to their already skilled workforce. Specifically, they will be looking for skilled machinists and tool makers. Sirois Tool provides a benefits package that's second-to-none in their industry. They believe in paying employees top wages and in return have created a high-performance workforce.

All construction on the expansion will be done with the same high quality as its current building, using many of the original contractors. Project completion is targeted for August.

Sirois Tool designs and manufactures precision tooling and gage products for the bearing, medical, aerospace, and firearm industries and OEM manufacturers. Sirois Tool companies include Dow Gage and North American Spring Tool.
