National praise for Quonset’s world class infrastructure

When a company chooses where to do business today there’s several things they consider – and world class infrastructure is always near the top of the list.  At the Quonset Development Corporation (QDC) we recognize the importance of infrastructure to our tenants, present and future.


More than 200 companies with 11,000 employees are at Quonset today taking advantage of our world class roads, port, utilities, and amenities. The upkeep, improvements, and care of Quonset’s infrastructure falls to Quonset’s Public Works Department, led by Jack Sprengel.   Jack’s team works tirelessly to ensure our companies have the resources they need to succeed and we could not be more proud of them.


Much of their work is behind the scenes and can go unnoticed.  Recently, however, our wastewater department was recognized for excellence in its field by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  Quonset’s wastewater team is led by Dennis Colberg, a 37-year employee of the QDC.   He and his colleagues were honored with the EPA’s 2016 Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant Excellence Award.  The facility was one of only six facilities across New England recognized for exemplary performance during 2016.
