KISCO Ltd., an international supplier of high-quality materials and services, has announced its acquisition of Specialty Coating Systems (SCS), a global provider of Parylene coating services and technologies.
Parylene is a thin coating often used on circuit boards that can go into moist environments. Both well-recognized brands, KISCO has been operating in the Parylene market for over 18 years and has a strong background in materials science and development. SCS also has notable roots back to the origination of Parylene and has been a leading contributor in the expansion of the worldwide Parylene market.
Over the coming year, the merged Parylene organization will begin to operate globally as Specialty Coating Systems, a KISCO company. The acquisition represents a significant milestone in the industry that builds on a combined 63 years of experience and positions the company as an industry leader with enhanced manufacturing capabilities, with unmatched research and development applications.
“We are pleased to welcome Specialty Coating Systems into the KISCO family,” said Takekazu Kishimoto, President of KISCO Ltd. “The management teams at KISCO and SCS are committed to continuing our strong leadership positions in the industry by providing high-quality Parylene services and technologies to our customers through a combined 21 regionally positioned facilities throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia. We are also committed to expanding the market by developing and commercializing new, cutting-edge materials, processes, and technologies, which will be made possible by the consolidation of our highly successful engineering teams.”
Terry Bush, SCS President & CEO, added: “This is an exciting time for our company and customers. I am proud of what Specialty Coating Systems has accomplished in the market throughout our company’s long history and am confident that the consolidation of our two companies will create an even stronger entity to better serve our customers in the future. SCS and KISCO remain committed to the highest level of quality products and customer service experiences, and we are excited about the opportunity to offer customers additional resources, locations, and coating options to help make their innovations successful.”
