Manchester Plastics

Manchester, New Hampshire was known by many names – Old Harry’s Town, Tyngstown and Derrysfield. But in 1807, a man named Samuel Blodget established a canal and lock system to allow boats and other vessels passage around the Amoskeag Falls. This canal would attach to a network that was developing to link from the area to Boston. Blodget envisioned that a great industrial center would develop from the use of this canal, something akin to Manchester, England, which was – at the time – at the forefront of the Industrial Revolution.

Today, Manchester’s metropolitan area has one of the fastest growing economies in New England. The city no longer depends on textiles and industry, as it’s diversified to healthcare, energy, finance and education.  The largest employers in Manchester are Elliot Hospital, Catholic Medical Center, Southern New Hampshire University, Eversource Energy, Fairport Communications, TD Bank, Citizens Bank, Saint Anselm College and Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield.
