Rhode Island’s Quonset Business Park Surpasses 14,000 Jobs: A Milestone in Economic Activity and Job Growth

Quonset Business Park Exceeds 14,000 Employment Opportunities

Rhode Island’s Quonset Business Park has reached a significant milestone by surpassing 14,000 jobs, exceeding the 13,000 jobs it had just 15 months ago. Governor Dan McKee praised Quonset as a key player in economic activity and job growth in the state. The park has seen tremendous growth due to strategic investments that have attracted new companies and fostered job creation for residents of the state.

One of the key factors contributing to this growth is upgrades and expansions at the Port of Davisville. This project is expected to sustain 1,600 existing jobs and create hundreds more through its expansion plans. Additionally, plans are being made to invest in the installation of cable for a wind farm, which will generate even more jobs for both Rhode Island and Connecticut.

House Speaker K. Joseph Shekarchi applauded the leadership at Quonset Business Park for reaching this impressive milestone. He also expressed support for continued investments in the Port of Davisville, noting its importance in creating more jobs while helping Rhode Island achieve its climate goals. Senate President Dominick Ruggerio also praised the park’s growth and success, solidifying its reputation as one of the top business parks in the nation.
