Seminole, FL – Salvo Technologies Inc., a technology-based holding company, has acquired Flash Photonics Inc. in a private deal with undisclosed terms. Flash Photonics serves multiple markets, including Consumer Product Manufacturing, Biological & Environmental, Food & Agriculture and Healthcare & Pharmaceutical, among others. Its core function is the distribution of innovative optical sensing and imaging-based products through working with many industry manufacturing partners. The comprehensive Flash Photonics’ product portfolio ranges from Raman and LIBS spectroscopy systems to scientific detectors, lasers, LEDs and more.

“This acquisition is in line with our continuing strategy to create value for our customers by providing a photonic product portfolio with complimentary offerings across the sensing and imaging market space.” Remarked Hugh Garvey, Director of Imaging at Salvo Technologies. “By incorporating the Flash Photonics offerings with what Salvo Technologies already possessed, the team can now solve a whole host of problems for our customers. This is indeed a very exciting time.” 

“I personally have worked with the guys from Salvo Technologies for over a decade. It was a natural fit to incorporate what we were doing at Flash Photonics with what Salvo was trying to accomplish.” Stated Kevin Kaye, Director of Sales at Flash Photonics. “What I find most exciting is that there is actually very little overlap in products the two groups offer. Flash Photonics and Salvo Technologies essentially doubled their offerings into the market space for optical sensing, serving different needs in a vast number of arenas. One day I can be working with the team on a Raman project for roadside drug detection and the next on a multispectral imaging project to reduce cancer margin. This is really a great group and I am extremely excited to see what the future brings.”

The acquisition is official today. The team will continue to notify customers and suppliers of the news, though there will be no change in service or supply.
