Baldwin buys assets of UV 'true pioneer' Western Quartz

Print peripherals company Baldwin Technology has announced it has bought "certain assets" of UV curing and exposure specialist Western Quartz Products.

Founded by John Dallons in 1931, the Californian company was one of the first producers of quartz lamps for medical applications, and innovated to become a leader in UV curing and exposure lamps worldwide.

President of Baldwin's AMS Spectral UV unit Rich Bennett says Western Quartz enhances Baldwin's capabilities in additive (doped) UV lamp production for industrial markets, providing "an excellent complement to our existing UV and LED-UV technology portfolio.

"Through this acquisition, we will continue to manufacture the same great quality that Western Quartz customers are used to, and will harmonise operations, increase capacity and add more capabilities."

Katy Wetterstrand, director and chief financial officer of Western Quartz, described it as "an exciting time for UV technology to help improve manufacturing processes, as well as human safety" through new applications in sterilisation and disinfection around the world.
