Disinfection system maker AquiSense acquired by UV-C LED maker Nikkiso

AquiSense Technologies LLC of Erlanger, KY, USA (which designs and manufactures water, air and surface disinfection systems based on UV-C LEDs) has been acquired in a cash deal by UV-C LED maker Nikkiso America Inc of San Diego, CA, USA (the US arm of Tokyo-based Nikkiso Co Ltd).

With over a half century of product development, Nikkiso has provided original technologies to a range of industries, including medical, aviation, life sciences and microelectronics. AquiSense and Nikkiso share a common aim to provide life-saving disinfection products employing UV-C LEDs.

The acquisition is intended to allow Nikkiso and AquiSense to accelerate market commercialization of disinfection products worldwide. "We have been excited to see the innovative solutions at AquiSense enter a number of high-value markets and look forward to supporting those efforts," says Dennis Martin, CEO of Nikkiso America.
