An open house celebration was held for Prism Analytical Technologies' brand new research and development facility on North Road in East Windsor on March 27. On hand were executives and engineers who explained the company's operations and product.
The company focuses on manufacturing and selling machinery and kits that collect air samples for testing. Clients typically include home inspectors who test air samples to ensure that a home does not contain dangerous chemicals or mold spores, as well as businesses that must meet EPA standards. Homeowners may also purchase their testing kits to check their own air quality. Samples taken with Prism kits are sent to their central lab in Michigan for testing. Larger clients can also purchase complex filters that measure gases continually as they enter the chamber.
Marty Spartz, an Ellington resident and founder of Prism, discussed his plans to hire six more people by the end of the year, giving them a total of 12 employees in East Windsor. He originally opened his laboratory in Michigan, and relocated its research and development division to Connecticut shortly thereafter.
Rep. Christopher Davis (R-57), who attended the event, said, "Growing high technology, well-paying jobs like these in our state is incredibly important."
