WEST DEPTFORD, NJ –
LAMATEK kicked off 2017 by expanding its manufacturing facility from 49,000 to 92,000 square feet, which will significantly increase production capacity. The leading supplier of foam tapes, seals, gaskets and custom fabricated parts signed a 10-year lease that started on January 1st for the space adjoining its current location.
Having spent the last decade investing in state-of-the-art equipment including rotary die-cutters, laser optical measuring systems, large format printers and CNC precision cutting machines, the expansion was the next logical step for the growing company. Since LAMATEK took advantage of the recent vacancy of the industrial space next door, it can remain in the same West Deptford facility it has called home since 2005.
“We’re thrilled about the expansion because it will allow us to accommodate new opportunities,” said President Bob Carlson. “We’re upgrading everything and adding capacity as well as new capabilities and equipment. For a company that started in an 1,800 square-foot garage, this marks an exciting chapter in our substantial growth over the years.”
After working with Gloucester County’s Workforce Development board, LAMATEK reaffirmed their commitment to contribute to the local economy, in addition to adding a minimum of 20 jobs over the next few years.
Gloucester County Freeholder Director and West Deptford resident, Robert M. Damminger said, “We are grateful that LAMATEK has chosen to keep West Deptford, Gloucester County as their home. We know that our industries have many options to choose from and we are pleased they chose to stay here, expand here and are committed to hiring here.”
Freeholder Heather Simmons, Liaison to the Department of Economic Development, said, “It is a pleasure to work with LAMATEK. They are a great corporate neighbor and they know that Gloucester County’s Workforce Development Board will work with them to help them find the right labor force they need for their new expansion.”
Investing in additional space will also allow the company to maintain the quality and outstanding service it’s been known for over the last 34 years.
