Oerlikon Acquires Finnish Surface Engineering Company

Broader Portfolio of Surface Treatments

Oerlikon, Balzers, Liechtenstein, has acquired DIARC Technology Oy, a provider of surface engineering technologies and services in Finland. The acquisition will enhance the range of technologies provided by Oerlikon Balzers in the automotive and precision components industries and expand its portfolio of surface treatments.

DIARC Technology Oy, a Finnish company founded in 1993, manufactures thin-film coatings that improve the performance and durability of tools and precision components. The company currently has 16 employees developing Diarc FCAPAD (Filtered Cathodic Arc Plasma Accelerator Deposition) coating technologies and servicing customers with ta-C structured amorphous diamond, functional carbon and metal nanocomposite thin films as well as ultra-dense metal nitride and metal oxide coatings, all at a very low deposition temperature of less than 100º C.

The acquisition means that DIARC will become part of a technology leader in surface solutions, backed up by the Oerlikon Balzers global R&D and production network (© Oerlikon)

This acquisition represents the next stage in Oerlikon Balzers’ strategy to increase growth in the automotive industry and to enhance the service it provides to its customers. As well as expanding Oerlikon Balzers’ footprint in Finland, DIARC adds new functional coatings for surface adaptation, advanced functionalities and surface protection. Oerlikon Balzers will therefore be able to provide additional expertise and a broader portfolio of surface treatments to its customers worldwide in R&D, coating services, process development and equipment.

"This acquisition sees us further accelerate the global expansion of our services. DIARC solutions perfectly complement our existing technology and coating portfolio, introducing a new surface technology in addition to what we currently offer. We welcome on board DIARC’s team of talented and highly skilled engineers”, said Jochen Weyandt, Head of Business Unit Automotive Solutions, Oerlikon.
