Commenting on ThruPore’s recent announcement to expand operations significantly in Newark, Delaware over the next few years, Delaware Governor John Carney said:

“Wet-lab-based companies provide great jobs and contribute to the valuable research and development activity that drives innovation economies such as ours. The Lab Space Grant program was created to support companies like ThruPore, enabling them to scale up, deliver on their potential, and create highly valuable long-term assets – including good-paying jobs in a key industry sector – for Delaware’s innovation ecosystem.”

Also commenting on ThruPore’s plans was New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer, who said:

“This spring, New Castle County’s CARES Act sub-committee on innovation chose to invest CARES Act funds in this women-led chemistry company, and product Dr. Filter, because they knew what ThruPore was doing was groundbreaking and innovative work, and I am thrilled they have chosen New Castle County to grow their operations. They clearly understood the benefits of being able to attract and retain top chemistry talent here in New Castle County, and I couldn’t agree with them more.”
