The market for nanomaterials wasn't completely clear when Art Fritts launched his fledging company in 2004. The value has become crystal clear since then, and Nanosperse -- which has commercialized a unique method of distributing nano-size carbon particles throughout materials for composites used in the defense, aerospace, and industrial marketplaces -- has benefited. Last July, the Dayton-based firm moved from production space at the University of Dayton Research Institute to an 8,000-square-foot production facility at the National Composite Center in Kettering. Production capacity? A million pounds of material per year. The move has prompted an increase in payroll, too. The company, which ended 2009 with two employees, now has eight and is expected to at least double that number within the next two years, says Fritts, NanoSperse's president. NanoSperse has made its way.
