Florida-based portable and modular spectroscopy company Ocean Optics has acquired the assets of Sandhouse Design, also based in Florida, USA.
As a designer and manufacturer of modular mid-infrared spectrometers, LEDs, light sources and other photonics products, Sandhouse Design has designed a novel line of high-powered LED light sources for research and spectroscopic applications. In addition, Sandhouse offers small scanning infrared spectrometers in wavelength ranges from 900-8000nm. Sandhouse products have been widely accepted in biotechnology, process control and industrial applications.
Ocean Optics will manufacture the new product line out of its ISO9001:2008 certified manufacturing facility in Winter Park, Florida, and handle sales and support via the company’s regional sales offices in the Americas, Europe and Asia. Ocean Optics will support existing Sandhouse customers immediately.
'The Sandhouse product line complements and expands what we offer today,' said Rob Randelman, Ocean Optics president. 'This acquisition allows us to offer additional solutions for our customers in new and existing markets in research and industry, and enhances our offering to OEM customers across a wide range of application needs. We’re confident our customers will be well served by the breadth and variety of our product offering.'
With the addition of the Sandhouse line, the Ocean Optics product offering will be close to 1,700 spectrometers, sensors, light sources and accessories.
