American Ultraviolet® has manufactured UVC Germicidal Fixtures since 1960. These fixtures have been safely operating in hospitals, laboratories, clean rooms, doctors' offices, commercial buildings, food processing plants, and residences throughout the world - any place a concern for clean air, liquids and/or surfaces exists. American Ultraviolet remains committed to providing the highest quality equipment at a fair price.
In addition to germicidal applications, American Ultraviolet provides ultraviolet equipment for use in curing UV-reactive chemistries used in adhesives, inks and coatings throughout just about every imaginable industry.
What Makes American Ultraviolet Different
We've seen the UV business - and the world, as a whole - change substantially in over half a century of business.
Here are a few things that didn't exist when American Ultraviolet started:
- Buffalo wings
- The Internet
- The game show, "Jeopardy!"
- Digital cameras
- The knowledge that smoking cigarettes is harmful to your health
- The Beatles
- The Ford Mustang
- The BASIC computer language
- The Civil Rights Act
- Microwave Ovens
- Cable Television
- Plastic grocery bags
- Mobile Phones
- Social Media
Through all the changes the world has seen since our inception, American Ultraviolet not only survived, but thrived by evolving and growing in our capabilities and our ability to provide our customers with the solution they need – not just the solution we have. Our ability to offer a vast array of standard equipment, slightly modified versions of standard equipment, and completely custom equipment that we design and fabricate in-house makes us unique and ensures that our customers can rely on American Ultraviolet to provide insightful solutions to improve their processes with remarkable results.
And because we've been engineering and manufacturing custom solutions for so long and have brought so much of that process into our facilities, we have maintained our ability to offer the highest quality equipment at a fair price – even when it's a completely custom project.
American Ultraviolet History
American Ultraviolet was founded in 1960. Since that time, we have been continuously operating as a leading manufacturer of ultraviolet technology. American Ultraviolet is privately held and owned by Mr. Meredith C. Stines, who has served as company president since 1980.
American Ultraviolet has grown from our first building - a 2,000 square foot facility in Chatham, New Jersey – to our current 70,000 square foot headquarters in Lebanon, Indiana.
We've since acquired several other ultraviolet businesses, including Aetek® UV Systems, UV Source, Lesco UV, Press Specialties, and Al's Co UV; and opened additional offices throughout the country, including those in Atlanta, Georgia and Torrance, California.
Our focus has always been, and will always be, on ultraviolet technology. Our goal is to provide the highest quality ultraviolet equipment at a fair price. We maintain a full staff of engineers dedicated to UV technology, and house our own sheet metal fabrication in our Indiana manufacturing facility. This combination allows American Ultraviolet® to manufacture consistent, and always high-quality standard equipment. It also enables us to custom design and manufacture specialty equipment to our customers' exact specifications - custom equipment that takes other companies' months, and doubles or triples their selling price, takes us only weeks, and helps our customers purchase far more for far less.
