The ribbon cutting commenced with a welcome speech by Larry Cohen, president. Connecticut Governor Jodi Rell presented the company with an award acknowledging the business and service it has contributed to the city. She named April 29 as the official Star Supply Day.
"I am grateful to everyone who has made this achievement possible," said President Larry Cohen. "Peggy and I would not be standing here without all of your work and love."
Manufacturers who participated in a vendor exhibition included Acme, ADP, R.W. Beckett, Duro-Dyne, Hart & Cooley, Honeywell, Johns Manville, Metal-Fab, Mitsubishi, Quietflex, Sporlan, Tecumseh, TMS/Fasco, Trane, Weil McLain, and Williamson.
