CHESHIRE – A Meriden-based company that produces specialty cables, cables and wires has acquired the former home of Alexion Pharmaceuticals on the 350 Knotter Drive.

Accel International Holdings is expected to move to its new home early next year, said Jerry Sitko, the city's economic development coordinator. Sitko said the company will continue to operate at its Meriden facility on North Colony Street.


The 177,000-square-foot building that Accel International moves into has been used for pharmaceutical manufacturing and needs to be retrofitted to meet the needs of the new tenant. The company is expected to invest $ 40 million in investment in the facility and hire up to 120 workers, city officials said.
