Universal Photonics, manufacturer and distributor of critical surface preparation materials worldwide, has announced the asset acquisition of California based, CV Nanotechnology. The acquisition transfers the production, sale, and distribution of CV Nanotechnology’s full product line of polishing compounds and surface preparation materials to Universal Photonics.

“UPI continues to make commitments to the advancement of surfacing and polishing technology, and strives to bring the very best of these products to our customers. CV Nanotechnology has developed many advanced polishing materials that will significantly add to the product capability we offer. Their innovative products will be integral to our technology suite of advanced materials” says Neil Johnson, President and CEO of Universal Photonics.

“Our long history of combining unique technology with robust service and support networks has helped UPI meet the expectations of the critical surfacing industry. We are confident that CV Nanotechnology’s products will add value to our customers’ processes and efficiency.”
