City of Bristol to Exhibit at EASTEC

EASTEC 2017 attracted over 12,700 attendees who explored more than 145,000 square feet of exhibit space and engaged with 726 exhibiting companies.

The Bristol Development Authority (BDA) will be exhibiting at EASTEC 2019, the leading Northeast manufacturing trade show, May 14 through May 16 in West Springfield, MA at the Eastern States Exposition (the Big E).

Bristol offers quality lots for manufacturers to build existing buildings and space available for purchase and many incentives to encourage companies to relocate to Bristol.

The BDA will feature areas like the Southeast Bristol Business Park. The Park features lots for sale ranging in size from 1.27 acres to 6.53 acres. The Park features full underground utilities and is ideal for manufacturers, distributors, and more – lots may be merged to accommodate larger projects.

Convenient to I-84 via Route 229 and Route 72, the Park is located within one mile of the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Lake Compounce Amusement Park, ESPN, and the City’s 229 Industrial Park which includes several large manufacturers and distributors.

Manufacturers and/or distributors building in Bristol are eligible for a 5-year, 80% tax abatement on the new construction. Additionally, business owners are eligible to apply to a local grant program offering sizeable funds to assist with new building construction.

As an example, a manufacturer that purchased Lot #4 and constructed a 30,000 square foot facility received a grant of $150,000.

EASTEC, the leading northeast manufacturing trade show, has been providing solutions to manufacturing challenges for more than 35 years. Attendees come from a variety of industries including Aircraft and Aerospace, Automotive, Medical, Defense, Industrial and Commercial Machinery, and more.

Exhibitors have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with over 13,000 attendees, of which 77% have a role in purchasing decisions with 29% having manufacturing equipment budgets of more than $200,000.
