Governor John Carney said, “We are pleased that AMT will be expanding their operations here in Delaware. As we continue to rebuild our economy, we should do everything we can to support innovation and good-paying jobs.” AMT will invest $4.5 million in its expansion, including $3 million to refurbish lab space to accommodate the company’s development. In exchange, the state will provide the corporation with a $89,705 jobs performance grant and a $619,000 lab space grant.
