In 1919 a young chemist, Frank LaMotte, decided to focus his expertise in the area of pH analysis on specific applications of chemical control. Within a few years, LaMotte's small laboratory in Baltimore, Maryland was manufacturing specialized pH indicators and other analytical reagents for world-wide distribution. The applications section of LaMotte's first major catalog, published in 1930, anticipated many of the areas in which accurate chemical control is indispensable today - boiler water, swimming pools, drinking water, and more.
Since 1919, LaMotte has been a committed leader in providing quality equipment and guidance for water analysis. Today, we produce the broadest line of portable test equipment, and continue our focus on your specific needs by offering improved products, strong technical support and the most extensive Custom Test Kit Service in the industry.
Reagents, instruments, and test kits are designed and manufactured at our Maryland facility. Our Research and Development staff is constantly improving our existing products and seeking new methods and reagent packages.
