Today, we are a privately-owned, ISO 9001 certified company residing in a 92,000 square foot facility in West Deptford, NJ where we manufacture custom converted tapes, seals, gaskets and other flexible materials for a variety of industries including electronics, appliances, windows and door manufacturers, OEMs, packaging, signage, HVAC, industrial and janitorial, automotive and commercial and residential construction.

Our Business Philosophy
In 1983, Kyle Larsson hand-typed a statement depicting the kind of soul he envisioned LAMATEK would have and it is evident that the framework and philosophy that was developed then has been inherently pursued to this day.
PEOPLE: A Statement of Philosophy
We believe that the achievements of an organization are the result of the combined efforts of each individual and that nothing better motivates people or engenders enthusiasm that respect, trust, and communication.
– All members of this organization are people first and foremost, and should, therefore, be treated with the respect and dignity deserving of all men and women.
– In general, no one knows more about a particular job than the person performing it. Therefore, we must trust each member to improve his area of responsibility in his own way.
– Face to face communication is vital to understanding, involvement, and innovation. Communication between and among all members at all levels of the organization is critical to the success and advancement of the organization and all its members.
– We have an obligation to provide job security for all of our people. To avoid undue strain on the organization, all members will be expected at times to interchange jobs as the needs of the firm require.
– We have an obligation to provide training and the opportunity for development to our productive people who want to improve their skills, expand their career opportunities, or simply further their general education.”
