Mott Clean Energy Announcement 641c002eea94c

Mott doubling ultra-thin metal sheet production to aid green hydrogen

March 23, 2023

Mott Corp. reported Feb. 22 that it is opening a new, 65,000-sq.-ft. facility near its headquarters in Farmington, Conn., which will house at least 100 new, local employees, who will help grow its clean energy business. The new facility will double its production capacity for custom-designed engineering solutions, as well as its ultra-thin, porous metal sheets that are a critical component in the generation of low-emission green hydrogen. Mott reports 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. “Mott has pioneered unique technology that 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 Gov. Lamont, U.S. Sen. Blumenthal, and all of our elected officials for advocating for cutting-edge companies like ours that are growing and creating jobs in Connecticut.”

Lamont added, “Mott is helping lead Connecticut’s growth as an advanced manufacturing hub, and creating jobs for our communities. We are proud to celebrate Mott’s expansion and are committed to supporting advanced manufacturing in our state.”

Blumenthal added, “Mott’s expansion is an enormous win for Connecticut and for bringing manufacturing jobs back to the U.S. This new facility will bolster production of clean energy technology, helping lead the transition away from fossil fuels, and add more than 100 jobs to our advanced manufacturing workforce. I’m proud to join Mott in this celebration, and will continue to advocate for funding to support their growth in our state.”
