The new facility will help the manufacturer grow its clean energy business
February 22, 2023
FARMINGTON, Conn.— Mott Corporation, a manufacturer of filtration and flow control products, is opening a new 65,000-square-foot facility near its headquarters in Farmington that will double production capacity for its custom-designed and engineered products, the company said in a release.
Mott said the facility will house at least 100 new employees, who will help the company grow its clean energy business. Mott is an employee-owned company that serves innovative industries like semiconductor equipment, clean energy, aerospace, and healthcare. Its products are used in applications from satellites and cell phones to implantable medical devices and green hydrogen facilities.
Global demand for hydrogen is expected to increase five-fold by 2050, yet less than 5 percent of the world’s hydrogen is produced sustainably, according to the release. Mott Corporation produces ultra-thin, porous metal sheets that are a critical component in the generation of green hydrogen, a low-emission fuel that will be essential for the world’s energy transition. Mott said its titanium Porous Transport Layers (PTLs) are “the thinnest in the world, allowing for the most efficient and cost-effective production of green hydrogen.”
“This investment will bolster Connecticut’s role as a home for innovation in clean energy, one of the fastest-growing industries there is,” said Boris Levin, CEO of Mott Corporation, in the release. “Mott has pioneered unique technology that the world’s leading energy producers need to generate green hydrogen, and the new facility will dramatically expand our production capacity.
“We’re able to do that in part because, as an employee-owned company, we’re able to recruit the best talent—and give our employees a share in our success. I’m very grateful to Governor Lamont, Senator Blumenthal, Congresswoman Hayes, and all of our elected officials for advocating for cutting-edge companies like ours that are growing and creating jobs in Connecticut.”
Total investment in the facility is expected to be “tens of millions of dollars over the coming years,” the company said in the release.
“The expansion of Mott Corporation is an enormous win for Connecticut and for bringing manufacturing jobs back to the U.S.,” said Senator Richard Blumenthal. “This new facility will bolster production of clean energy technology—helping lead the transition away from fossil fuels—and add over 100 jobs to our advanced manufacturing workforce.”
