A Shelton-based electrical and electronic product manufacturer announced this week it's closing it's Newtown plant, resulting in a loss of about 140 jobs. Governor Ned Lamont was asked about Hubbell also shutting down a plant in Bethel by the end of the year. He spoke with company officials and say they doubled down in Connecticut by upping their lease. Hubbell will retain more than 650 jobs in the state and continue to house their corporate headquarters in Connecticut. Work at the Newtown facility will move to Puerto Rico. Work at the Bethel plant is being transferred to Alabama. Lamont also highlighted other manufacturing plants opening in the state, saying it's a more tech-oriented workforce.
