Mott Corporation Receives $100K Grant from State of Connecticut to Support the Adoption of Additive Technologies and Advanced Printing Capabilities

(FARMINGTON, CT) – May 2024 Mott Corporation announced it is the recipient of a $100,000 state grant to help support the adoption of additive technologies that improve operations and drive innovation. This includes high-end 3D metal printers for functional parts as well as tooling and advanced plastic printing capabilities. Ron Angelo, CEO of Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology (CCAT), presented the news in early May alongside Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont and the state’s Chief Manufacturing Officer, Paul S. Lavoie.

The competitive grant is awarded from the Additive Manufacturing Adoption Program (AMAP), an initiative conceived by the Connecticut Manufacturing Innovation Fund Advisory Board and CCAT. It is part of the state’s Manufacturing Innovation Fund, which is administered by the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development and was established to support the growth, innovation, and progress of the state’s advanced manufacturing sector.

“Mott is committed to state and federal supply chain and security issues as demonstrated by this grant funding,” said Boris Levin, Chairman and CEO. “We thank the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology as well as Governor Ned Lamont for their continued support of our team and technology.”

“Mott’s innovative additive manufacturing technology is used to create custom 3D printed filtration and flow control solutions for customers in industries such as semiconductor, biotechnology, analytical chemistry, and aerospace & defense just to name a few,” said Vincent Palumbo, Program Manager of Advanced Manufacturing R&D.  “This breakthrough technology that can print pore sizes down to 1 micron or less allows us the ability to quickly prototype complex ceramic and metal designs that meet customer specifications while providing more uniform pore size distribution and flow permeability in a light-weight footprint.”

Mott was of six Connecticut manufacturers with less than 300 employees to receive this grant. The other recipients of the grant include Advanced Manufacturing, LLC of Windsor, Airex Rubber Products Corporation of Portland, Integrated Illumination Systems, Inc. (dba I2 Systems) of Morris, TriMech Solutions, LLC of Deep River and West-Conn Tool and Die, Inc. of Shelton.
