The Town of Berlin, Connecticut

Country Charm at the Center of Connecticut


Economic Development

Doing Business in Berlin

Our central location is at the hub of the regional highway network including most major interstates and north/south state highways.  Being in Berlin allows firms to tap into the region’s large pool of educated workers, as well as be able to send goods throughout the United States and beyond.

The Town has attracted regional and international businesses such as COMCAST, Eversource, Assa Abloy, and Home Depot, but has still retained its New England charm, creating a magnificent quality of life. 

To continue to recruit and retain valuable firms and employees, Berlin has maintained its sense of community through Town-wide activities like the Berlin Fair, by encouraging civic participation and by offering a wide range of home ownership options.  With the upgrades to the New Haven/Springfield Rail Line, a trip to New York City or Springfield is just a short train ride away.

Its sense of place is what sets Berlin apart and makes our community a special place to live and a great place to locate a business.
