Aculon Completes Major Expansion of Laboratory & Production Space

San Diego, CA | Posted on November 10th, 2011

Aculon, Inc., a leading nanotechnology enabled performance coatings company, today announced the completion of the expansion of the company's research and production laboratory space. Started exactly 4 months ago, the expansion of Aculons laboratory facility on Sorrento Valley Road in San Diego effectively doubles the amount of laboratory space available for research and production of cutting edge surface modification treatments.

"The expansion of this facility is strategically very important to Aculon," says Edward Hughes, CEO of Aculon. "The investment in our facility underscores our commitment to R&D and to fulfilling the needs of our rapidly increasing customer base."

The San Diego operation has been a major center for surface modification research since 2005, and since then has grown and expanded its activities to include both research and production of Aculon's proprietary technologies.
