CBIA BizCast host Ali Warshavsky speaks with Horst Engineering president and CEO Scott Livingston following the celebration of the company's 75th anniversary and opening of their new East Hartford headquarters.
Livingston’s grandfather started the business in 1946 in the second story of a barn in Hartford. Today, it’s a highly regarded manufacturer of precision parts for the aerospace, capital equipment, medical device, naval/marine, and power generation industries.
The new facility is an advanced manufacturing showcase, featuring natural light and open spaces and an array of high-tech machines and equipment.
“Giving people access to the outdoors through large windows really changed the way we renovated the building,” Livingston says.
“I think we hit a home run. It's inspired by factories I visited in Europe in Switzerland, Germany, and also in Japan.”
