Lamatek kicked off 2017 by expanding its manufacturing facility in West Deptford, N.J., from 49,000 to 92,000 square feet. The supplier of foam tapes, seals, gaskets and custom-fabricated parts signed a ten-year lease that started on January 1 for the space adjoining its current location.

Because Lamatek took advantage of the recent vacancy of the industrial space next door, it can remain in the same facility it has called home since 2005.

“We’re thrilled about the expansion because it will allow us to accommodate new opportunities,” says president Bob Carlson. “We’re upgrading everything and adding capacity as well as new capabilities and equipment. For a company that started in a 1,800 square-foot garage, this marks an exciting chapter in our substantial growth over the years.”
