April 6, 2015

Seminole, FL—Salvo Technologies Inc, a technology-based private equity group, has acquired Next Phase Optics (NPO) in a private deal with undisclosed terms. A small manufacturer of innovative processes for the precision optics industry, NPO complements Salvo Technologies, which has a well-established presence in the defense and security markets. “NPO utilizes out of the box thinking and cutting-edge processes to deliver high quality optical components and EO assemblies to serve not only the defense market but other industries like industrial and medical,” said Patrick Bass, executive vice president for Salvo Technologies. “This fits our model of growth through strategic acquisitions as NPO not only allows us to control our supply chain but also allows us to expand our offerings to our current customer base.”

In addition to NPO, Salvo Technologies encompasses multiple divisions including: Salvo Electronics, Salvo Coatings, Salvo Defense and Salvo Electro-Optics (Salvo EO). It also maintains a strategic alliance with HDC, 4D Tactical and Mil-Aero Solutions. All groups directly or indirectly serve the security, defense, and law enforcement markets, as well as other application areas. The addition of NPO creates synergies and critical vertical integration allowing Salvo Technologies to control its supply chain for critical products.

“Becoming part of Salvo Technologies gives us access to a lot more product lines which, in the end, allow us to serve our customer base better. In addition the added engineering resources allow NPO to have an entirely new value proposition while maintaining our current core competencies,” said Ted Kamprath, manager of strategic accounts at NPO. “We look forward to collaborating with the rest of the team and implementing best practices across the company. We feel NPO has as much to learn from Salvo as it does to share. It’s a win/win in the truest sense of the term. I know people say this all the time but it’s really almost an understatement in this case. We are looking forward to the future and all of the exciting challenges ahead of us.”
