LaMotte Company Plans Newark, Delaware, Research Facility

LaMotte Company, a leading producer of water-quality testing instrumentation and reagents, will establish operations in Newark, Delaware. The $3.3 million project is expected to create 100 jobs over the next three years.

The company plans to build out lab space at its new location in Pencader Corporate Center. The 79,000-square-foot site also will include office and production space.

“We are thrilled to continue our expansion plans culminating in this investment in Delaware,” said LaMotte President and CEO Scott Amsbaugh. “The Newark location is highly valuable for us given the skilled and educated local workforce and its proximity to global shipping hubs. This investment is critical in our capacity expansion to meet our customers’ growing demands for LaMotte’s products.”

Established in 1919 LaMotte Company is a leading manufacturer of environmental testing equipment for water and soil. The company sells globally in over 40 countries.

“We are working hard to make Delaware more competitive so that we can compete and win every day,” said Governor John Carney. “That means making sure we have the best environment so businesses like LaMotte Company can grow and thrive here in Delaware. We are excited for this expansion and the new jobs it will bring. This investment shows that Delaware remains in demand for manufacturing and innovative development.”

The company intends to collaborate with the university’s College of Engineering and Lerner College of Business & Economics to develop an internship and employee pipeline. It also plans to partner with Delaware’s vocational high schools and Delaware Technical Community College to address its needs for technician and manufacturing personnel.
