Army vet acquires Hartford Wire Works

U.S. Army Veteran and management consultant Stephen Gifford has acquired Windsor-based Hartford Wire Works, the company said Thursday.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Just three families have owned the fence, gate and cage manufacturer since it was founded in 1870. Gifford takes over for Steve Litke, who took over the company from his father in 1994.

Litke will remain with the management team, the company said.

Gifford is an economic development commissioner in North Haven and an adjunct business professor at Southern New Hampshire University. He served two combat tours in Iraq and has also worked as a human resources for OEM America.
