Automation technology company Exaktera LLC, a Union Park Capital portfolio company, acquired Advanced Illumination Inc., a Vermont-based designer and manufacturer of specialty LED lighting assemblies and drivers for machine vision, industrial imaging, biomedical, and related imaging applications. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. Per the agreement, Advanced Illumination President John Thraikill will continue in his role.

Advanced Illumination’s LED components, current mode drivers, and strobe sources — combined with optical and thermal design techniques — enable factory automation and machine vision across a wide variety of industrial applications. Advanced Illumination's portfolio in specialty LED solutions and expertise in machine vision complements Exaktera’s existing capabilities, according to Phil Martin, CEO of Exaktera.

In November 2021, Exaktera acquired ProPhotonix, a designer and manufacturer of LED illumination systems and laser diode modules, in a deal worth approximately $11.6 million.
