Autac Inc. will be hosting an Open House/Re-launch Party on June 16,
2016 from 1pm-4pm at their Branford location. The event is to celebrate
70 years in business and the launch of their new website and catalogue.
“Technically Autac was founded in 1945 and incorporated in 1947. All
the literature over the years has paid homage to the incorporation date or I
guess the day when Dad moved the company out of his garage to an actual
place of business in 1947” laughs the CEO, Marie-Louise Burkle. “Since
we are launching our new website and catalogues this year I just figured
why not split the baby and make 2016 the 70th Anniversary? Plus we have
so much to celebrate. The company has been doing really well the last year.
And to finally be healthy enough to return to running Autac is something I’m
personally celebrating! It was a rough run from 2010-2015. My illness, the
collapse of our company headquarters in the Blizzard of 2011 and of course
the economic issues specific to manufacturing in Connecticut; it’s a miracle
we survived. 2015 was a real turning point for me and for Autac. It’s time
to recognize this fresh start and revel in a new life for Autac and myself.”
The event will begin at 1pm. The plant will be running live for tours from
1-2:30 but the facility will have an open house from 1-4. Also from 1pm-4pm
Autac will have food trucks, music, libations, games and extensive networking opportunities. They will be assisting customers and vendors from afar
to “make a weekend out of it” and take advantage of Autac’s proximity to
NYC, Boston, Newport and the Casinos along with other festivities in the
area such as the Branford Festival.
“We are looking to promote our town, our state, our vendors as well as
ourselves. I am often asked why we still do business in CT. I say come to
this event and let me show you.” declares Marie-Louise, “Branford is a
great town to do business with; Connecticut has so much to offer. It’s been
our home for 70 years and we want to show it off.”
