II-VI buys laser diode innovator Direct Photonics

Oct. 14, 2016
II-VI, whose annual revenues are headed towards the $1 billion mark by 2020, has acquired Direct Photonics.
Fast-growing Optoelectronics components and materials company II-VI (Saxonburg, PA), whose annual revenues are headed towards the $1 billion mark by 2020 on the past decade's trend, has acquired Direct Photonics (Berlin, Germany), a developer of kilowatt-class direct diode lasers.
Laser Focus World's take:

Here they go again. After a string of endless acquisitions, II-VI has now acquired Direct Photonics of Berlin, Germany. Direct Photonics is part of the direct-diode laser materials processing movement, in which laser diodes are seen as the lowest-cost-of-ownership and lowest-power-consumption means to materials processing and machining.
