CANTON-Perry Technology Corp. is U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy’s latest Monday Manufacturer.

Perry Technology is a second-generation, family owned manufacturer founded in 1949. It specializes in precision gears, splined couplings and complex-machined components for the aerospace, power generation, military and medical industries.

“The gears and engine parts made each day by the team of Connecticut manufacturers at Perry Technology are being flown on aircraft all over the world. That’s something to be proud of,” said Murphy.

Many of Perry Technology’s customers include major equipment manufacturers such as Sikorsky, General Electric, General Dynamics and NASA as well as smaller companies in Connecticut, New England and beyond.

The company employs 110 workers in two Connecticut facilities, a 150,000-square-foot building in New Hartford and an 8,000-square-foot building in Canton.

As an International Traffic in Arms Regulations-certified manufacturer, Perry Technology produces drive components for U.S. military defense systems and commercial aerospace systems providers around the world.

Perry Technology also works with the state Department of Labor’s Office of Apprenticeship Training to provide in-house and on-the-job training to students from local trade schools.

“We are honored to be recognized by Sen. Murphy and applaud his good work on behalf of Connecticut manufacturers,” Perry Vice President Dan Seger said. “As a family-owned business, we take pride in our long-standing and skilled staff of machinists, programmers and engineers.”
