MONTVILLE, N.J.—September 28, 2022—Marotta Controls, a rapidly growing aerospace and defense supplier, announced it has been selected as a finalist for the ‘MADE in New Jersey’ Manufacturing Day 2022 Manufacturer of the Year Awards hosted by the New Jersey Manufacturing Extension Program (NJMEP). The awards recognize companies demonstrating industry leadership, innovation, growth, and commitment to the professional development of its employees and communities. Marotta Controls is one of three finalists in the Large Businesses category. Winners will be announced October 7.

“Regardless of whether we win, we’re incredibly proud to be included as a finalist,” said Patrick Marotta, President and CEO, Marotta Controls. “Our growth has been phenomenal over the past several years. We’ve introduced new product lines while expanding our operations to two facilities. We’ve essentially doubled our revenue as well as our employee base. We’ve invested heavily in the growth of our team having recently reorganized the company to establish better professional development paths along with stronger customer support processes. It’s an honor to know that those efforts are being recognized by a reputable organization known for championing businesses that go above and beyond.”

Marotta Controls is a 79-year-old company that was established and grown in New Jersey’s Morris County. Throughout its history, it has remained committed to helping customers worldwide overcome complex engineering challenges by improving on trusted technologies as well as developing new, innovative products that provide solutions for hard-to-solve problems. The aerospace and defense supplier initially entered the market with a strong valve portfolio and has since expanded to include actuation systems, power conversion products, and thermal management systems uniquely designed for aerospace, marine, space, and tactical applications.

Driving its legacy, Marotta Controls institutes a quality policy that includes four key tenets integral to the company’s culture: continuous improvement, customer focus, honesty and integrity, and innovation. The policy has led to the supplier deploying lean manufacturing methods, employee goal sharing programs, community volunteerism, and more.

“We understand that while our technological innovations are key, our employees are crucial to our continued success. We have learned that the greatest innovations come from a culture that allows our team members to explore their ideas, to collaborate across business units, and to know that they are contributing to their community in meaningful ways. To that end, we aim to maintain a professional environment that is as much educational as it is inspirational,” continued Patrick.
