Well Positioned For The Global Economy . . .
Wallingford is poised for a promising economic future. Our highly productive and educated labor force, superior quality of life, strategic geographic business location, one of the lowest electric rates in New England and the nation’s highest percentage of employment in technology- based industries reflect the Town's economic strength. Although service, trade and manufacturing are the major players in the local economy, pharmaceutical research and development, telecommunications, software development, photonics and fuel cell technology are emerging as integral components of the Town’s recent commercial and industrial growth.
Wallingford is well positioned to compete in the global economy, especially in the area of biotechnology. Wallingford is home to Bristol-Myers Squibb's 700,000sf research and development facility and is within 12 miles of Yale University, a world-class research institution specializing in biological sciences research. Wallingford is also located within that part of the state that has attracted numerous major pharmaceutical and bioscience companies.
