(AP) – Adesis, Inc. today announced that U.S. Senator Tom Carper visited its New Castle facility on Friday, August 25. Sen. Carper toured Adesis’ laboratories to observe first-hand the cutting-edge research and development in materials and pharmaceutical sciences, and met with senior management to discuss growth opportunities that are expected to further boost research and innovation in Delaware.
Founded in 1991 in Newport, Delaware, Adesis recently purchased its New Castle, Delaware building in May 2017 to expand its custom organic synthesis, research and development, and specialty manufacturing capabilities.
The New Castle facility is a 47,500-square-foot building in the Southgate Industrial Center, of which Adesis had previously leased about 25,100 square feet.
“When the Senate is out of session, I tour Delaware visiting with businesses like Adesis for what I like to call ‘Customer Calls’, where I can find out how our local companies are doing and what we can do in government to create a nurturing environment for job creation,” said Carper. “I’m so pleased that Adesis has chosen Delaware, with its first-class workforce, to expand its operations.”
“We are very pleased to have the opportunity to host Senator Tom Carper at our facility and showcase the latest developments at Adesis,” said Andrew Cottone, President of Adesis, Inc. “As a leading organic synthesis CRO (contract research organization), we are broadening our presence in Delaware and appreciate Senator Carper’s long-standing support of businesses and new career opportunities.”
