Idex Adds Precision Photonics to O&P Platform
Apr 2012
LAKE FOREST, Ill., April 11, 2012 — Idex Corp. has acquired optical components maker Precision Photonics Corporation (PPC) for $20 million in cash, the company announced Wednesday.

PPC was founded in Boulder, Colo., in 2000 by scientists-turned-engineers from the neighboring NIST and JILA research institutions. It specializes in optical components and coatings for scientific research, aerospace, telecommunications and electronics manufacturing applications.

PPC will operate in Idex’s Optics and Photonics platform within the Health and Science Technologies segment, joining Semrock and AT Films, which were acquired in January 2011; and CVI Melles Griot, which Idex bought in June 2011 (see Idex to Acquire CVI Melles Griot for $400M).
