Atlantic Ultraviolet Corporation® was established as a New York Corporation on November 22, 1963 to assume operation of a predecessor company following the death of its owner/operator. The business started in Long Island City as a manufacturer of germicidal ultraviolet fixtures and equipment utilizing germicidal ultraviolet lamps to destroy bacteria, mold and virus in air and on surfaces.
In 1970 the company began production of its own line of germicidal uv lamps in competition with Westinghouse and General Electric, who were the primary producers at the time. The Ster-L-Ray® germicidal uv lamp brand produced by Atlantic Ultraviolet Corporation® are short wave low pressure mercury vapor tubes that produce ultraviolet wavelengths that are lethal to microorganisms. Approximately 95% of the ultraviolet energy emitted is at the mercury resonance line of 254 nanometers. This wavelength is in the region of maximum germicidal effectiveness and is highly lethal to virus, bacteria and mold spores. Ster-L-Ray® germicidal uv lamps are now produced in Amalgam, Instant Start, Cold Cathode and Preheat type, with either Ozone-Producing or Low Ozone-Producing capabilities, and in standard and high output.
In 1973 the company released the Sanitron® Ultraviolet Water Purifier product line, a unique and rapid method of water disinfection without the use of heat or chemicals. Since this time, Atlantic Ultraviolet Corporation® has introduced other brands of water disinfection equipment, under the trademark names Bio-Logic®, Minipure®, Mighty Pure®, Ultimate®, Megatron®, TankMaster™, and Infinity™. In addition the air and surface sanitizer lines expanded to include the Sanitaire®, Hygeaire®, Nutripure®, SaniLight®, SaniRay®, Aerologic®, and Sanidyne®, and have enjoyed increased sales since introduction.
In 1975 Atlantic Ultraviolet’s corporate offices and manufacturing facilities moved to a new location in Bay Shore, New York. The new 5,000 square foot facility was constructed and soon expanded to 8,000 square feet in 1980. Continuing research and development maintains Atlantic Ultraviolet Corporation’s leadership in applied ultraviolet technology. Exacting procedures and stringent quality control measures insure products of consistently high quality. Engineering studies of product design and materials are conducted with an eye to enhancing product usefulness and value. Existing and potential new products are subjected to rigorous test protocols in order to insure the highest standards of performance and reliability. Atlantic Ultraviolet’s staff continues to grow to include ultraviolet application specialists and an engineering department with vast knowledge of ultraviolet technologies. The staff assists customers in the selection of germicidal lamps and ultraviolet equipment to suit specific applications. Atlantic Ultraviolet continues to formulate effective and cost-conscious ultraviolet solutions.
By 1994 another move was necessary to house the ever growing corporate offices, manufacturing facilities and expanding inventory. The move takes Atlantic Ultraviolet Corporation to its current location in Hauppauge, New York to a 25,000 square foot building which was quickly expanded to 37,500 square feet in 1997. Atlantic Ultraviolet Corporation continues to strive for growth with extensive work in Research and Development. The company’s conservative management philosophy has resulted in steadily increasing financial strength, profitability and growth of market share.
