Posted on April 30, 2018
One company is growing and creating more manufacturing jobs in Connecticut.
Mayborn Group, a global manufacturer of baby products, has relocated its U.S. headquarters from Norwood, Massachusetts to Stamford, Connecticut. The company currently employs 16 and plans to add an additional 7 workers by 2019.
“This is the latest example of an international company seeing tremendous opportunity in our state,” Governor Malloy said. “Connecticut offers many competitive advantages for companies, and we are thrilled to now have Mayborn call Connecticut home.”
Mayborn Group is the owner of the leading baby essentials brand tommee tippee® which offers a range of award-winning baby feeding, soothing and hygiene products. This global brand is number one for infant feeding in the U.K. and Australia and is the fastest growing bottle brand in America. Headquartered in North East England, Mayborn has offices worldwide including in Paris, Melbourne and Hong Kong.
“As part of a wider strategic review of Mayborn’s growth agenda, we are excited with the move of our North American headquarters to Stamford,” Chris Parsons, President of Mayborn USA, said. “This locates Mayborn at the heart of some of the world’s leading Consumer Packaged Goods companies, providing a wider recruiting pool to supplement our current talent base. Stamford also is also rapidly becoming a hub for digital media and this connectivity will further accelerate our shift to a digital-led business that represents huge upside to the entire Mayborn group.”
The company is leasing approximately 5,000 square feet of space at 1010 Washington Boulevard. The Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) is supporting the project with a $300,000 loan and $100,000 matching grant through the Small Business Express program.
“We continue to see a diverse array of companies make commitments to grow and invest in our state,” DECD Commissioner Catherine Smiths said. “Many of them cite our workforce, location and quality of life as key reasons for their move. This bodes well for the economy moving forward.”
