U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) announced on Monday, August 12th that Preferred Utilities Manufacturing Corporation in Danbury is that week’s “Murphy’s Monday Manufacturer.” Founded in 1920, Preferred Utilities specializes in the manufacturing of burners, instruments and controls, and fuel oil handling equipment for industrial, commercial, and missions critical applications. The company does work for government and municipal buildings, hospitals, colleges and universities, data centers, pharmaceutical companies, waste management plants, and nuclear facilities. Preferred Utilities became the first company in the Northeast to convert its boilers to Bio-Residual Oil, which is produced from vegetable grease and animal fat, to power its 50,000 square foot facility in Danbury. They are also one of the first companies in Connecticut to convert its boilers to renewable fuel.
“Preferred Utilities is leading the way in combating climate change by using alternative and renewable fuels to run their business and companies around the world are noticing. They are committed to the Danbury community through partnerships with local schools and charitable organizations. I’m happy to highlight them,” said Murphy.
