Sono-Tek Corporation (OTC BB: SOTK), a worldwide precision ultrasonic coating equipment manufacturer, announces the company’s 35-year anniversary.
The company was started in 1975 by Dr. Harvey Berger, inventor of the ultrasonic nozzle. From modest beginnings during the oil crisis of the 1970s, Sono-Tek has continually developed its unique technologies and grown from being a company that only provided ultrasonic nozzles to a full coating solutions company.
Sono-Tek’s initial developments included fuel efficient nozzles for oil burners, but the company quickly realized the unique capabilities of its ultrasonic nozzles would benefit manufacturers in a wide variety of industries. Current worldwide offerings from Sono-Tek include spray fluxing systems for PCB manufacturing, XYZ coating platforms used in solar and fuel cell manufacturing, precision medical device coating equipment, and various other industrial coating machines for glass, textile, and food applications.
The company's diversification plan into several industries has allowed steady growth over the past six years and counting. Sono-Tek has delivered more than 10,000 ultrasonic coating systems around the world during the company's history.
Dr. Christopher Coccio, Sono-Tek’s CEO, made the following statement regarding this historic milestone for the company, “Having worked with Sono-Tek for the past decade, I have seen the company and many of our products develop into industry standard methods for coating in several industries. The opportunities we find for implementation of our ultrasonic spray coating equipment continues to expand, and we see exciting potential in the years ahead.”
Sono-Tek is the world leader in the development and application of liquid ultrasonic atomization technology into nozzle systems and spraying and coating application systems. Compared to conventional pressure spraying methods, the company’s ultrasonic nozzles do not clog, reduce liquid usage, waste, and environmental impact while achieving much more precise, uniform, thin film coatings. Sono-Tek is continually developing new applications for its unique technology, replacing wasteful practices in a world that is growing ever more environmentally sensitive.
