American Ultraviolet has announced the acquisition of Al’s Co. UV Curing Equipment, Inc., Chino, CA; and Press Specialties Mfg., Inc., Apple Valley, CA. Al’s Co. UV and Press Specialties manufacture off-line UV roller coaters, feeders and stackers that compliment American Ultraviolet’s complete line of UV curing equipment and, like American Ultraviolet, 100 percent of their products are made in the United States. Future manufacturing will be consolidated into American Ultraviolet’s west coast facility in Torrance, CA.
American Ultraviolet, through the acquisition of Al’s Co. UV, has increased their product offering and now offers standard UV roller coaters from 20 to 80 inches, as well as smaller, and larger custom UV roller coaters. They can be purchased individually, or with optional feeders and stackers. Albert Nuño, founder of Al’s Co. UV stated, “After a 10-year career developing UV products for another large California-based company, I started Al’s Co. UV when my former company chose to move manufacturing oversees. Now, four years later, I’m proud to align with American Ultraviolet, a company that has been committed to manufacturing high-quality UV products in the U.S. since 1960.”
Press Specialties was formed in the 1950’s and purchased by Ron Young in 1995. Young shared, “After producing hundreds of paper and envelope feeders, and stackers, for 19 years, I’m excited about this new relationship with Mr. Meredith Stines and all his colleagues at American Ultraviolet, a company with a strong reputation for high standards for quality manufacturing, and service, and pleased to know that our products will continue to be made in California.” Paper feeders range in accommodating sheet sizes from 5x7 inches to 30x40 inches and envelope feeders from 3x5 inches to 10x15 inches.
