    Historical Context

    The Superior Electric Company was incorporated in Connecticut in 1916 and was based in Bristol.

    The company manufactured motor control, voltage conditioning and solid state frequency converter products.

    In 1989, Superior Electric was purchased by the Dana Corporation.

    Superior's Middle Street building in Bristol was the headquarters and factory of the company, once one of Bristol's biggest industries. Superior employed as many as 700 workers at its peak in the 1960s, but the plant closed in 2001. Today, the company's buildings have been repurposed and leased to the company that is the city's biggest employer today - ESPN.
