About Us


Charles M. Pugliese founded Sperry Automatics Co., Inc. in 1964 while operating out of a six-bay garage on “Sperry” Street in Waterbury, CT. A couple of years after establishing his manufacturing business, his son, Charles A. Pugliese joined him. A few years later, as their business grew, they relocated the establishment to Naugatuck, CT where the company is currently located. Since that time and through multiple additions, Sperry’s building (including offices and manufacturing space) is now over 15,000 square feet.


Currently, Sperry Automatics Co., Inc. is owned and operated by Charles A. Pugliese and his two sons, Dave, and Rick. Most recently, the fourth generation of the Pugliese Family joined Sperry when Rick’s son, Richard, became part of the team in 2020. Sperry’s management team continuously looks for new ways to update machinery and tooling, to modernize the facility and work towards building a better future for the company and their employees. The company is proud to announce the completion of a long-anticipated project and as of Spring 2023, Sperry Automatics is now operating using solar powered energy.
