Inc. began in 1960 as a manufacturer of
specialized gelatin used in the electronics
industry. The concept of its beginning was
in these four parts:
1. Modern industry evolves on technical
know-how. The market we wanted to enter
would be dependent on the technical expertise
that we could furnish.
2. This is also the age of specialization.
Initially we decided to concentrate on
light sensitive adhesives and coatings.
3. Large corporations require substantial
volumes to warrant producing a specific
product. We felt that there was a potential
for a small company which could manufacture
products that a large corporation would
4. We therefore agreed to develop products
that had relative low volume, but were
high in value and were technically sophisticated.
During the past 52 years we have developed
a line of products that command considerable
interest in the market place. Our relationship
to the camera industry led us to the
development in 1973 of a line of ultraviolet
curing adhesives originally used for
bonding lenses, but later branching
out into military optics, fiber optics, LEDs, LCDs, displays
We have two manufacturing locations,
one in New Jersey USA and our sister plant,
Kenney & Ross, in Nova Scotia,Canada.
Some of the products we manufacture include
fish gelatin, ultraviolet curing optical
adhesives, UV curing electronic adhesives,
and fiber optic equipment.
Most of our products are unique and
must have high performance properties
with definite advantages to be accepted
over alternative products in the market
place. For instance, our ultraviolet curing
optical adhesives are one part adhesives
that cure in seconds when exposed to UV
light and are used for bonding lenses,
prisms and other precision optics. The
speed and accuracy allowed by these products
are advantageous to the user but it is
the high optical quality and superior
physical performance that leads the customer
to choose it over other products on the
Another example is our high purity gelatin.
We extract the gelatin from the skins
of cold water fish to make a unique product
used by a variety of industries ranging
from technical to the food and pharmaceutical.
Our gelatin is different than regular
animal gelatin in that a water solution
remains a liquid at room temperature instead
of a gel. This offers great advantages
in handling the material in production,minimizing
difficulties such as temperature and viscosity
control, yet providing the desirable properties
only available from gelatin.
For the last 20 years we have been supplying
interferometric test equipment to the
fiber optics industry. This has been
an evolutionary process because of the
changing needs of the customers to meet
more rigorous standards. By investing
the necessary time and money in the
computer technology that has become
available in the last few years(speed
and memory), we have made great strides
in advancing interferometric technology
to new levels.
Selling to the worldwide market, we
get a special satisfaction from doing
things no other company is doing. By specializing
in certain areas, we have developed a
reputation of excellence in our fields.
It is this reputation we strive to uphold
as we develop new ideas and new products
