February 2, 2017

Cyient, Inc., a multi-faceted aerospace engineering design and manufacturing firm, is expanding its operations in East Hartford. Currently employing 456 full time workers in Connecticut, the company plans to add 85 full-time jobs over the next three years.

Established in 1991, Cyient has 38 locations across North America, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific region, and is a leader in engineering design services. The company is a supplier to Sikorsky, Pratt & Whitney, and other aerospace companies throughout Connecticut, and was recently awarded the Productivity Savings and Cost Avoidance Award and the Supplier Productivity Innovation Award by Pratt & Whitney.

Cyient recently relocated its U.S. headquarters to 99 East River Drive in East Hartford. The company is also in the process of expanding its delivery center located at the same site. In total, the company is taking up an additional 15,500 square feet to expand its operation and accommodate employee growth over the next three years.

The state, through the Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD), will support this project with a $500,000 loan. Cyient will use the funds to purchase machinery and equipment for the expansion.
