Aerospace and defense supplier Marotta Controls opened a second New Jersey facility, this one in Parsippany. The company also has buildings in Montville, and will now use freed-up space there to expand its production capacity, development labs and testing facilities.
Marotta Controls has operated solely out of its Montville location for more than 70 years. In the last few years, recent growth has brought on more than 200 additional employees.
“Demand for our advanced solutions is shifting from custom orders to large volume orders in several areas,” said President and CEO Patrick Marotta. “Notably, we needed to increase production capacity for our Control Actuation Systems and Power Systems as our expertise and innovations in these areas draw more attention from our customers. We are far from where we started nearly eighty years ago when we focused on a valve-only portfolio. Our building resources simply needed to accommodate that evolution. It was an exciting problem to have.”
The company’s executive and main business functions – including engineering, human resources, program management, marketing and finance – will relocate to the new 50,000-square-foot Parsippany office. The space will also house a new development lab for Marotta’s power and control actuation technologies. Production of those solutions will still occur at the 130,0000-square-foot Montville location.
“Marotta Controls is unique. We are a New Jersey born, privately-owned business serving our industry’s leading defense contractors. We offer enterprise-class capabilities with the nimbleness of a small business. Our success is built solely on organic growth and the strategic introduction of new capabilities,” Marotta said. “These traits have all resulted in us being one of the only long-standing aerospace and defense suppliers covering the breadth of verticals we do today. We intend to continue investing in our company, our people, and our community to maintain that trajectory for decades to come.”
A formal ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Parsippany office will take place in June.
