Senator Witkos visits Avon business Sanford & Hawley

November 1, 2019

Senator Witkos recently had the chance to visit Sanford & Hawley yesterday at their Avon lumberyard with State Rep. Leslee Hill.

Sanford & Hawley has been in existence since 1884 when they were first established in Unionville.  They operate 4 locations including Avon, Unionville, Manchester and West Springfield.

“I appreciated the chance to hear from owners Ted & Bob Sanford and their staff about their business and industry.  It was also interesting to hear of the opportunities that exist in the industry for young men and women after high school.  It’s important to encourage our younger generations to explore these good paying trades and i was grateful to hear of Ted and Bob’s interest in spreading the word about their industry.
