Chroma Technology in the News

by VBSA-admin on November 15, 2018

Chroma Technology’s upcoming expansion was featured in a recent VT Digger Business & Economy article:

When Paul Millman moved his company to a 28,000-square-foot facility in Bellows Falls about 15 years ago, he never imagined he would need more space.

Back then his company, Chroma Technology Corp., made optical filters primarily for biomedical technology, such as microscopes and clinical diagnostic devices. Now, it’s making components for self-driving cars, agricultural drones and cellphone displays.

“The world that we serve has gotten larger,” Millman said.

Chroma recently unveiled a $22 million expansion that doubles its square footage in a ribbon cutting ceremony with Gov. Phil Scott and Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt.

“I was impressed,” said Leahy after the event. “They’ll create jobs — and good paying jobs.”

The expansion will allow Chroma to more than double its machinery and hire another 25 people to add to its team of about 120.
