Gov. Peter Shumlin, U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy, U.S. Congressman Peter Welch, and local officials joined Norm Schneeberger, President and CEO of G.S. Precision, to break ground on a $17 million expansion that will bring 100 new jobs to Brattleboro in the next few years. The event capped nearly eight months of work by G.S. Precision, Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation, the Agency of Commerce and Community Development, the Vermont Economic Development Authority (VEDA), and the Town of Brattleboro to ensure that the company expanded its business in Brattleboro and not elsewhere.

"This project has been a team effort to combine federal, state, and local resources to retain and create great jobs in Brattleboro," said Governor Shumlin. "This is the kind of public-private partnership that will help ensure Windham County's economic future."

"The high-paying, quality manufacturing jobs that will be here in Brattleboro through this expansion should make all Vermonters proud," said U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy. "No rock was left unturned in finding the resources to finance this deal. I am pleased that Vermont could count on federal programs to partner with G.S. Precision to make this possible. This creative package shows once again that successful economic development is truly a team sport."

Said U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, "At a time when many hardworking Vermonters are struggling to make a living, it is encouraging to know G.S. Precision will maintain its 300 employees in Brattleboro and add 100 new jobs to the local economy."

"This is great news for Brattleboro and Windham County," said Congressman Peter Welch. "I applaud the collaborative efforts of state and community leaders who marshalled the federal, state and local resources needed to keep a great company with deep Vermont roots right where it belongs in the Green Mountain State."
