The local manufacturer of radar and communication system components for ships, submarines and aircraft took several eco-friendly initiatives when it recently expanded its manufacturing facility at 11 Continental Dr.
Cobham, which employs 400 workers in two facilities, worked on its green initiatives with Unitil, a Hampton-based power and natural gas provider.
Bouchard praised Unitil for its help and said he hopes other companies take advantage of the energy efficiency programs available through the utility.
The expansion doubled the size of Cobham's facility and included 70,000 square feet of manufacturing space and 35,000 square feet of conference room and office space.
