nLIGHT concludes acquisition of Liekki to boost presence in optical fiber market

Abstract:
Semiconductor laser maker nLIGHT Corp. in Vancouver, Wash., has completed its acquisition of specialty fiber manufacturer Liekki Corp. in Lohja, Finland.

"While the acquisition officially closed on November 9th, we have already been actively working with the Liekki team to integrate them into the nLIGHT strategy, organization, and future plans," says Scott Keeney, nLIGHT's president and chief executive officer. "Liekki's direct nanoparticle deposition (DND) fiber technology process gives us a unique capability."
