Nikkiso America Inc. wholly acquired AquiSense Technologies in a cash deal.

AquiSense and Nikkiso share a common goal of providing disinfection products employing UV-C LEDs. Nikkiso manufactures UV-C LEDs by utilizing core technology from Nobel Prize recipients. AquiSense manufactures water, air and surface disinfection systems with UV-C LEDs at the core of each design, like the PearlAqua, a UV-C LED water disinfection system. 

This acquisition allows Nikkiso and AquiSense to accelerate market commercialization of disinfection products around the world. Together, AquiSense and Nikkiso believe UV LED applications will improve health standards and boost the disinfection economy.

“We have been excited to see the innovative solutions at AquiSense enter a number of high value markets and look forward to supporting those efforts,” said Dennis Martin, CEO of Nikkiso America Inc. 

“We have worked closely with a number of suppliers to integrate the best UV-C LEDs, and Nikkiso have consistently delivered strong product to us," said Oliver Lawal, CEO of AquiSense Technologies.

Lawal, AquiSense Chief Technology Officer Jennifer Pagan and all other employees will continue in their roles.
