I write alot about the state's economy and jobs - usually from a perspective of what needs to be done to create more jobs and enhance the economy. I don't often get the chance to write about what's already here...companies in Connecticut producing products.

Tomorrow, up at the state Capitol, there will be a demonstration of 40 "homegrown" companies from around the state showing off their talents - and products produced right here in Connecticut, from submarines built at EB in Groton to Al's Beverages located in East Windsor.

There are more than 3,500 manufacturing companies in Connecticut, employing more than 200,000 Connecticut residents who make things. It's pretty impressive when you actually see what we're already doing - not that we couldn't be doing more of it.

The event will run from 111 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Hall of Flags at the Capitol.
