New Britain Machine Company
The New Britain Machine Company of New Britain -- Connecticut's "Hardware City" -- was formed in 1895 to produce steam engines but by the 1930s was better known for their production of bar and chucking machines, hand tools and precision products. During World War II the company produced anti-aircraft guns and other armaments to contribute to the war effort. The company was purchased by Litton Industries in 1972, which was later taken over by Stanley Works.
