In celebration of our 50 years in thermal packaging design and innovation and the relocation of our corporate headquarters to Franklin, MA, we hosted a grand opening and ribbon cutting on June 1, 2017.
The event was attended by CCT employees, business associates, and public officials that included Massachusetts Lt. Governor Karyn Polito, State Representative Jeffrey Roy, Lisa Nelson on behalf of US Congressman Joseph Kennedy III, Peter Milano from the Massachusetts Office of Business Development, Greg Casey on behalf of US State Senator Richard Ross, Town of Franklin Administrator Jeffery Nutting, Town of Franklin Council Member Andy Bissanti, Edward Kriegsman of Kriegsman & Kriegsman, Bonnie Sullivan of Middlesex Savings Bank, Julia Dvorko of the Massachusetts Export Center and more.
The morning began with a reception, followed by remarks, an official ribbon cutting, and a guided facility tour.
Larry Gordon, CEO at Cold Chain Technologies, stated:
“We’ve had continued wonderful support from so many people. This is a chance for us to really thank everybody that has been supportive in our growth and what we’ve built and it is due to the support of those from outside the organization and most importantly from our employees who have worked very hard. A lot of dedication and a tremendous amount of passion for helping customers solve their problems and a desire to get better and better every day.”
Karyn Polito, Lt. Governor of Massachusetts, stated:
“Thank you very much for having me here this morning to mark a milestone for this great company here in the MetroWest area of our commonwealth. I want to thank Larry for his leadership and the whole team effort that comes with this celebration today. Cold Chain has really revolutionized the way it does business. I was reading about the history of the company and that it would package food and seafood and then to now transition to the current demands in the life science industry and how profound your work is that your work absolutely matters in the health of individuals and people around the world that you are safeguarding medicines and individualized therapies that help people live a good quality of life and recover and enjoy the benefits that we all enjoy in our own lives. You’re part of something much bigger than just the design and revolutionizing of how we package these medicines. You’re part of making people’s lives better and that’s really an amazing accomplishment for a business that’s been in existence for 50 years.”
CCT would like to thank all our guests for celebrating such a special day with us. Cheers to the future!
