Bigelow Tea, the U.S. specialty tea market leader, held a ribbon cutting on Monday to officially open their new warehouse location in Orange, CT. Bigelow announced earlier this year that they were expanding their presence in Connecticut with the leasing of a new 41,600square foot warehouse. The new space will be used to expand the company’s storage and distribution capacity.
Cindi Bigelow, third-generation President & CEO of the family-owned company, which manufactures “Constant Comment®” and more than 150 varieties of tea, said “I am happy to continue to grow in the state that I love and call home and am looking forward to being part of the Orange community.”
Orange First Selectman James Zeoli is also looking forward to Bigelow’s arrival. “We are excited to welcome Bigelow Tea to the growing list of companies who have a presence here in Orange. As a family-owned company with a long history of community outreach and engagement, they are a perfect addition to our town.”
CT Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner David Lehman added: “Bigelow Tea is an iconic company, here and abroad. We are thrilled that Fairfield is the international world headquarters and that the company has expanded in Orange. Bigelow has been the paradigm for corporate social responsibility and conscious capitalism.”
In addition to Cindi Bigelow, Selectman Zeoli and Commissioner Lehman, other distinguished guests in attendance at the ribbon cutting included Lieutenant Governor Susan Bysiewicz, State Senator James Maroney, State Representatives Kathy Kennedy and Charles Ferraro, State Representative Elect Mary Welander, and Orange Chamber of Commerce President Ted Novicki.
