To the Editor:

As you may be aware, Ultimate Wireforms has been an integral part of the Bristol and Plymouth communities for over 29 years. We moved to Bristol from Plymouth in 1995 and employ over 75 people. We are fortunate enough to be growing and, as such, need to move to a larger, custom-designed facility.

There have been several mentions of our move in various publications. In some cases these mentions have been accompanied by speculation regarding the reasons for our decision to move back to Plymouth. Ultimate Wireforms has a long history and many valuable relationships here. As part of the Bristol community, we feel it is important that the citizens of Bristol have the simple and honest answer regarding our move directly from us.

Ultimate Wireforms is not moving out of Bristol because of anything that the city of Bristol or any individual did or did not do. The simple truth is that not a single Bristol official knew anything about our move until it was finalized with the town of Plymouth. We chose Plymouth for two reasons:

1. There was an available piece of property that perfectly suited our needs as well as being geographically centered within our workforce.

2. Mayor Merchant and the town of Plymouth were extremely proactive and professional and did everything in welcoming us and assisting with the details of making this move.

We sincerely thank Mayor Cockayne and Mayor Merchant for all of their help and support - past, present, and future. We are only moving up the road and will remain an active part of the Bristol and Plymouth business, philanthropic, and civic communities.
