Auriga Measurement Systems Announces Acquisition of Nanometrics’s DiVA Series
HONOLULU, Hawaii, June 5, 2007 Auriga Measurement Systems, LLC today announced it has acquired the DiVA Pulsed IV Instrument series from Nanometrics Industries of Milpitas, California for an undisclosed amount. Previously owned by Accent Optical Technologies, DiVA is a well-known supplier to the RF microwave industry and offers moderate power, low-cost pulsed IV instruments. David Menzer, president of Auriga said, “Strategically, this is a good acquisition for Auriga, as this acquisition adds instant depth to our product line in our core market space. Auriga’s board has challenged us to grow organically and through acquisitions; this is the first of what we hope to be many strategic purchases in the coming years that make us a stronger company for our customers.” “In our industry,” said Ted Lewis, director of sales and marketing for Auriga, “DiVA is well-known and has a good reputation as a stand-alone solution provider. DiVA’s products compliment our high performance pulsed IV offerings, allowing us to provide a broader range of solutions to our customers. I believe our sales channel will have a lot of fun with the DiVA line, as it will give our channel more opportunity to meet the needs of their customers.” Auriga will sell the current DiVA product line under the Auriga name. It will also assume full support responsibility for current DiVA customers with their DiVA systems. Auriga will explore embedding the DiVA technology into its own technology and offering one system with a broader range of pulsed IV solutions.
