Feb. 4, 2016 – Spectronics has announced the acquisition of H&I Manufacturing, a precision machine and job shop located in Bohemia, N.Y. As part of the purchase agreement, H&I became a new division of Spectronics, and its machinery and personnel were moved into the parent company’s 100,000-sq.-ft. manufacturing facility in Westbury, N.Y.
Headquartered in Westbury, Spectronics is a global manufacturer of ultraviolet equipment and fluorescent dyes. Meanwhile, H&I specializes in CNC milling, turning and honing, as well as sheet metal fabrication. The company works with titanium, 17-4 PH, 15-5 PH and 440C stainless steel, and other ferrous and non-ferrous materials, including plastics.
H&I’s present machinery, plus the planned acquisition of additional machinery, will boost Spectronics’ research and development efforts, along with streamlining the output, quality and dependability of its existing products, says company officials. H&I’s machine shop will continue to serve the aerospace, defence, automotive, medical and electronics industries, as it has been doing for more than 25 years.
“The integration of H&I with Spectronics will create a more efficient, smooth-running manufacturing process,” said Jon Cooper, president of Spectronics. “That will allow us to expand our ability to deliver the technologically advanced products that our global customer base has come to expect.”
Kristian Immoor, the former president and owner of H&I, is now the Advanced Manufacturing Foreman of the new division. “I am very excited about this partnership and the opportunity to work with the talented and skilled individuals of Spectronics, and I look forward to our mutual success,” added Immoor.
