At the beginning of 2024, Excelitas Technologies Corporation acquired the Noblelight division of the Heraeus Group. The company, which is active in the development and production of photonics solutions, is thus continuing a series of strategic acquisitions since its foundation in 2010. The industrial technology manufacturer intends to strengthen its position in the global market for specialty light sources.
Noblelight has plants in Germany, the UK, the USA, China and Japan as well as several international application centers and sales offices. The former Heraeus company specializes in the development and manufacture of specialty light sources, components and system solutions with wavelengths ranging from ultraviolet to infrared for applications in instrumental analysis, industrial UV curing, water treatment, electronics manufacturing, medical and cosmetic therapy and battery production, among others.
“We are delighted that Noblelight and its strong team will now become part of the Excelitas family,” said Ron Keating, CEO of Excelitas Technologies. “With our combined know-how and manufacturing expertise, we now offer one of the most comprehensive and versatile lighting portfolios from a single source. We are united by a proven, customer-oriented product development strategy that promises future market success and lasting, reliable business relationships.” Noblelight Managing Director Roland Eckl also has high expectations of the new partnership.
