Ansonia Copper and Brass consisted of six buildings spanning 43-acres along the Naugatuck River and employed as many as 10,000 people working three shifts, six days a week. The complex was the economic generator for the city of Ansonia and much of the Naugatuck Valley but the costs of foreign steel, copper, iron and brass plummeted, resulting in the company being sold and ultimately closed. The entire complex is scheduled to be demolished in 2018.
