STRATFORD - ?A company called Hollywood East/Area 51 recently won the right to buy an engine plant, known as Allied Signal, from the U.S. Army. However, the future of the Stratford plant is still unknown.

If the deal does fall through, the question is whether the next highest bidder gets a shot at the plant or the bidding process starts all over.
