About LaMotte | 

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 catalogue, published in 1930, anticipated many of the areas in which accurate chemical control is indispensable today - boiler water, swimming pools, drinking water, and more.

Today LaMotte Company is located on its own 15-acre industrial park near colonial Chestertown on Maryland's Eastern Shore. The company manufactures analytical reagents, laboratory apparatus, electronic instrumentation, and complete portable test kits for chemical analysis in hundreds of applications. Now available in New Zealand from Evident.
