Committed to Quality and Innovation

Spectronics Corporation invented fluorescent leak detection in 1955, and today we are the world’s leading manufacturer of ultraviolet equipment and fluorescent materials.

If you remember back to your high school science class, ultraviolet light is an invisible part of the electromagnetic spectrum. So while people might not always see what we do (no pun intended), they will appreciate the far-reaching and far-sighted applications of our innovative technologies.

We manufacture lights that make your drive to work every day safer, but I don’t mean headlights. Our UV inspection lamps are used by car makers and civil engineers to find tiny cracks not only in your engine but also on the bridges you drive over. Have you ever watched any of the detective dramas on TV and seen actors sifting over crime scenes with special blue light flashlights to find fingerprints? We make the light sources that real-life forensic investigators use to solve crimes. We even supplied UV lamps that were used on the U.S. Space Shuttle.

Spectronics has been educating our customers about a pretty simple principle that we were taught as kids. That is, you don’t wait for something to completely break down before you fix it.

Whether it’s a nuclear power plant, a huge HVAC system for a multi-million-dollar skyscraper or your car’s air-conditioning system, it’s all the same. If you invest in properly and regularly maintaining them, you’ll end up saving time, money and maybe even lives. That’s the real value Spectronics provides to our customers.
