Thomson Reuters once again has put a global spotlight on what we at CBIA have known for a long time—that many of our members are among the world’s most innovative companies.

Named to Thomson Reuters’s 2013 Top 100 Global Innovators  list were CBIA members AT&T, Covidien, Ford Motor, General Electric, IBM, Microsoft, United Technologies, and Xerox.

In its annual listing, Thomson Reuters said that its awardees “continue to push the envelope with new technologies and invest more in R&D.

“These are the companies that are driving growth, creating jobs and pioneering new products and services,” added Thomson Reuters.

Connecticut has long benefited from these prestigious companies who are so important to our state’s economy and communities.
