Baldwin Technology Company Inc. has announced the acquisition of certain assets of Western Quartz Products, a manufacturer in the ultraviolet curing and exposure industry, known for their state-of-the-art UV curing lamps.

“We are excited to welcome Western Quartz, along with its customers, to our global UV technology arm and our broad portfolio of products that improve processes for printing, packaging and industrial markets,” said Joe Kline, CEO of Baldwin.

Western Quartz was launched in 1931 in Hermosa Beach, California, and was one of the first producers of quartz lamps for medical purposes. Since then, the company has moved further into the UV curing industry and has grown to become a supplier of UV curing and exposure lamps worldwide, with customers in the US, Europe and Asia.
