STRATFORD-U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy announced Monday that XG Industries is his pick for this weekâ€™s Monday Manufacturer.
XG Industries manufactures nanoparticle-infused lubricants that are used to clean and protect metal surfaces, tools or any metal equipment exposed to water or weather.
Its products are non-toxic and 100 percent eco-friendly, and can be used in consumersâ€™ households, on sports equipment and automobiles, and in machining applications to reduce friction and to prevent rust, corrosion and oxidation.
The company, which was founded in 2015, has four patents on the technology used to create their products. Nine Connecticut police departments and the U.S. military are two examples of a variety of clients that rely on XG Industriesâ€™ lubricants.
XG Industries currently employs 10 workers, but are planning to hire more chemists and sales and operations managers as well as expanding its operations to a larger facility.
â€śWhether itâ€™s for police departments, the U.S. military, cyclists or car owners, XG Industriesâ€™ lubricants are used by a wide range of customers,â€ť said Murphy. â€śThe Stratford team turned an innovative, new technology into a business and Iâ€™m excited to see them grow.â€ť
