HARTFORD– U.S. Senators Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) on Wednesday joined Mott Corporation to announce a $10 million grant award from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), funded by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, to accelerate the design and production of its clean energy technology.

Mott is a Farmington-based advanced manufacturing company founded in 1959. It is a 100 percent employee-owned company and one of the fastest-growing, most innovative companies in America. Mott’s cutting-edge filtration systems are used in key industries like aerospace, clean energy, and electric vehicles and help operate products around the world, from smartphones to implantable medical devices to the Mars Rover.

With this grant, Mott and its partners, Wallingford-based Nel Hydrogen, Forge Nano, and the University of Connecticut, will produce metal porous transport layers (PTLs), an essential component for the production of clean hydrogen. These next-generation PTLs will help drive down the cost of clean hydrogen, consistent with the federal government’s goal to reduce the cost of clean hydrogen to $1 per kilogram by 2030. The $10 million federal grant will be matched with $2.5 million in private sector support from Mott and its partners.

Founded in 1959, Mott Corp, a cornerstone in the engineering sector, has been on a consistent growth trajectory in Connecticut, marked by expansions and strategic acquisitions. In a significant development last year, the company announced the inauguration of a new 65,000-square-foot facility in close proximity to its Farmington headquarters, an initiative set to double its production capacity for custom-designed engineering solutions. Following this expansion, Mott Corp further solidified its market position by acquiring a Michigan-based engineering company renowned for its specialization in advanced water filtration systems. These strategic moves underscore Mott Corp’s commitment to innovation and excellence in engineering, signaling a new era of growth and development for the company.
