Nalas CEO, Jerry Salan, hosted members from Connecticut’s Department of Economic and Community Development yesterday, August 4th, 2014. The meeting included a discussion of our proposed plan for expansion to include a kilo lab facility to support our customers’ demands for scale-up of various materials of interest. DECD’s Peter Lent, Assistant Executive Director, and Ms. Toni Karnes toured the recently renovated facility and prospective space for the proposed expansion. The proposal was well received and we are hopeful the meeting will result in a small business loan offered by DECD. The loan will enable Nalas to initiate construction of the kilo lab at our existing facility in Centerbrook, CT and thus afford the opportunity to create and sustain additional jobs in the state.
