"The additional expertise and facilities, in concert with EMF's commitment to continuous improvement and superior customer service, will greatly enhance our ability to meet the needs of our current and future customers. Now with two centers of manufacturing excellence, we will vastly increase our capacity to meet the growing demand for high volume products at our Rochester facility, while expanding our ability to provide custom coating solutions at our site in Ithaca."

Additional details regarding the acquisition will be outlined in Dynasil's 8-K filing with the SEC.
