Camlin Acquire Gilden Photonics

Camlin acquired the business of Gilden Photonics in February 2017 bringing a new range of spectroscopy instrumentation and hyperspectral imaging technology into the Camlin Group.

Gilden Photonics, incorporated in Glasgow, Scotland, and owned and managed by Dr John Gilchrist (who has joined the Camlin team), had over a decade of experience in optical design, development and manufacture. The acquisition further strengthens and extends Camlin’s considerable spectroscopy expertise and technologies, as well as opening up new markets to the Camlin Group such as the research sector and industrial inspection.

Camlin will soon complete a purpose-built photonics manufacturing facility at Camlin’s HQ in Lisburn Northern Ireland and the volume production of the Gilden products will move into this new facility; whilst the Glasgow office will become a research and development centre of excellence.
