Connecticut Carpentry Group
The recession was a challenge for Jim Dufour’s company, CT Carpentry Group LLC, founded in 1985. CEDF provided help that included restructuring the company’s debt and establishing a line of credit. With this lending, Dufour's cash flow improved, and he was able to purchase new equipment and hire and train new employees. By 2017, the company's success grew to the point where he purchased his own building.
