Candels Boards the Train to Essex, CT

Candels is on the move!  After nearly 10 years of having an office in Niantic, CT, the Candels team has officially moved to Essex, CT as of July, 2013.

Our new office is located in a historic mill building that once housed the E.E. Dickinson Company, a family owned company established in the 1860’s for the production of witch hazel, a mild astringent which was used as a family remedy for a variety of minor ills.  The company operated on this site from the mid-1800’s until the mid 1980’s when the family sold the business.  What remains of the original site is the large water tower, the main office building, and a tank building, where our office is located.  Our new office is also steps away from the historic Essex Steam Train and River Boat Ride, owned by the Valley Railroad Company.  Here you can board a real steam powered train from the Essex Station, built in 1892.  The scenic ride takes in lovely views along the Connecticut River and stops in Deep River for passengers to disembark and take a ride on the Becky Thatcher down the Connecticut River.

There certainly is a lot of history behind our move….both our company history and the historic nature of the Essex area.  With that in mind, we look to the future and our next 10 years in business with hope and aspiration.  And many thanks to our customers who have been with us throughout our journey.  Cheers!
