Adesis, Inc., a subsidiary of Universal Display Corporation, plans to open a new suite of state-of-the-art laboratories in Delaware. The labs will expand the company’s organic chemistry team and R&D teams.
The pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical research company will use the added capacity to expand opportunities in OLED (organic light emitting diode) emitters and other custom organic synthesis and specialty manufacturing.
The new labs will be connected to the company’s New Castle headquarters.
In addition, Adesis has become a sponsor of the Delaware Innovation Space in Wilmington. It will occupy a 7,000-square-feet space inside the former DuPont Experimental Station.
“Adesis continues to invest in Delaware, and we are thrilled that the company will bring its long track record of innovation to the Delaware Innovation Space,” said Governor John Carney. “We partnered with DuPont and the University of Delaware to create the Innovation Space to foster growth of early-stage scientific-based companies, and encourage collaboration among Delaware’s most talented innovators. The addition of Adesis will support that mission, and we’re thankful for the company’s continued partnership.”
