ETTER Engineering Celebrates 75 Years!

75 years – It’s a lifetime. 75 years is a long existence for just about anything, but especially a small, family-owned business. As ETTER Engineering celebrates our 75th Anniversary, we proudly look back to 1940, the year that our company began. Life was different back then, but one thing that has remained the same through the years is our customers’ need for support with the application and control of gas-fired process heating equipment. 1940 saw World War II continue to rage in Europe. Future star athletes Fran Tarkenton and Joe Torre were born, along with stalwarts of the American Media like Tom Brokaw and Al Pacino. Manufacturing in America was booming, both from wartime production as well as standard economic output. With that as a…

Giving Back to the Community

We know how fortunate many of us are to have our health, loving families and friends, and financial security. As we approach the holiday period, it’s important for us here at ETTER Engineering to give back to our community in many ways, both big and little. The United Way of Western CT sponsors an annual food drive, to which ETTER employees recently contributed over 150 lbs. of non-perishable food items. These donations will go to help local families  enjoy their holiday meals and ensure each experiences the happiness of this holiday season! A big thank you to all the ETTER employees who made this possible through their generous donations! Contact Us

The 2014 ETTER Mini-Golf Challenge

The storied links of Hidden Valley, which sit just a Bubba Watson 3-wood from ESPN’s Bristol Campus, were host to the 2014 ETTER Mini-Golf Challenge on Friday. While we invited The Worldwide Leader to cover the event, they politely declined, citing “football.” Despite the lack of media, the show went on, and in the end it was the fearsome foursome of Tom, Chris, Pat and Tiger that brought home the win, coming in with a combined score of 139. The second place group, who asked to remain anonymous, were a distant 7 strokes behind the Champions. Blogmaster Chris also took home honors for most hole-in-ones. When asked what allowed him to drop 7 aces, he replied, “A laser focus, gritty determination, and my Odyssey White…

Things Are Just Beachy Around Here!

It may have been pouring rain outside, but it was a great day at the beach inside the Connecticut Convention Center on Thursday. Our Marketing Team spent the day learning about new technologies and trends in business within the state of Connecticut at the Connecticut Business Expo. Unfortunately, the beach photo was not accompanied by drinks with little umbrellas! Contact Us

Engineers and Golf Balls: A Dangerous Mix

FORE! At a recent golf tournament held by a valued partner of ETTER Engineering, one of our Project Engineers got a little too radical with his three wood, resulting in a less-than-ideal trajectory on his shot. Fortunately for his playing partner who should have been sitting in the golf cart, the in-cart GPS unit bore the brunt of our man’s errant drive. The result? Simply smashing! All of us here at ETTER Engineering would like to extend our sincere condolences to the friends and family of this GPS unit. Contact Us
