\MetLife Inc. is consolidating its Connecticut operations after buying a 550,000-square-foot Bloomfield office building and plans on moving about 2,000 employees there.
The New York-based insurance giants said 1,300 employees would be relocated from Hartford’s CityPlace to the new office building.
MetLife has signed a purchase agreement to acquire Cigna Corp.’s South Building in Bloomfield.
The 1,300 MetLife employees in Hartford will move to Bloomfield during the third quarter of 2008, company spokesman John Calagna said.
In addition, about 450 employees will move from MetLife’s leased space in Glastonbury this December and 250 will relocate to Bloomfield from Rocky Hill in the first quarter of 2008.
“We are making a significant commitment, both in terms of people and finances, to the Greater Hartford area,” Calagna said. Bloomfield will be one of MetLife’s largest office locations once its employees move there.
