General Information:

Branford has been described in the CT Economic Digest as “a vital community with a strong economic base, low taxes, and excellent schools and municipal services. The town is rather unique among the shoreline towns east of New Haven in that it has encouraged substantial development in well-defined districts.” Without a doubt, Branford is a Sound location.

With a healthy business climate and a diverse business community of bioscience, manufacturing, healthcare and service industries, and retail, Branford businesses include: 454 Life Sciences, an R&D powerhouse in biotech; CAS Medical, among the Connecticut Technology Council’s “Top 40” fastest growing technology companies; and Branford Hills Health Care Center, recipient of the American Health Care Association’s “Step 1 Quality Award”.

These businesses recognize that Branford provides them with what every company wants: full municipal services (e.g., water, sewer), a skilled workforce, the lowest tax rate along the I-95 corridor, and convenient access to transportation. A triple-A rating by Standards & Poor’s is icing on the cake.

Centrally located on the Long Island Sound with more than 20 miles of shoreline, Branford has a quality of life and sense of community that is second to none. All of this is combined with a “business friendly” approach that encourages new ventures and expansions.
