HARTFORD - Longtime family-owned manufacturer BML Tool & Manufacturing Corp. is this weekâ€™s â€śMurphyâ€™s Monday Manufacturer,â€ť announced U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy.
BML is a tool and die company founded in 1968 a two-car garage by business partners Philip Battaglia, Joeseph Legen and Charles Mossma.
It now manufactures complex tools and automated machinery out of a custom-built 38,000-square-foot facility in Monroe.
