In February 2002, the Cryogenics Division of Sumitomo Heavy Industries, one of the most respected cryogenic companies in the world, acquired APD Cryogenics. The combined global infrastructures, manufacturing capabilities and product ranges of Sumitomo Heavy Industries and APD Cryogenics bring to the marketplace a unique and unprecedented capability, to enable rapid development of the next wave of cryogenic devices.
Osamu Sekiya, General Manager of SHI Cryogenics, said, "Sumitomo Heavy Industries is focused on expanding its position in cryogenic technology and applications. The purchase of APD Cryogenics firmly establishes SHI as the premiere provider and technology leader of helium based products for the MRI industry and other applications, and positions it well for growth within the cryopump segment of the semiconductor market. This acquisition will allow us to serve our customers with enhanced global sales and support while adding to our capability in the development of next generation cryogenic solutions."
