The acquisition represents a significant milestone in the industry as it further positions the company as the industry leader with enhanced manufacturing capabilities around the world and unmatched research, development and applications experience.
President of KISCO Ltd. Takekazu Kishimoto said, "We are pleased to welcome Specialty Coating Systems into the KISCO family. The management teams at KISCO and SCS are committed to continuing our strong leadership positions in the industry by providing high quality Parylene services and technologies to our customers through a combined 21 regionally positioned facilities throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia. We are also committed to expanding the market by developing and commercialising new, cutting edge materials, processes and technologies, which will be made possible by the consolidation of our highly successful engineering teams."
