Recently the Santa Clarita Valley Business Journal published a news story highlighting the history and success of UltraViolet Devices, Inc. (UVDI). “Local Company Leads Competitors” describes how the third-generation family owned and operated business has thrived during 20 years of innovation, leadership and manufacturing excellence with technology driven products.
The article quotes UVDI’s CEO and Co-Chairman, Peter Veloz, discussing the company’s recipe for success. “We take something that can really make a difference in peoples’ lives. We find a need that hasn’t been met and then figure out how to meet that need,” Veloz said. “And we do it better than anyone else.”
The article also highlighted the celebration of UVDI’s 20th anniversary. Acknowledging the important role their 52 employees play in the company’s success, 5 in particular were honored during their anniversary celebration for their 20 years of service.
The company’s growth strategy has always been driven by innovation and technology which has helped keep UVDI in a leadership role within the industry. Richard Hayes, UVDI’s President, stated, “We’re an industry leader in terms of research and development; it’s one of our assets. Our development and testing capabilities, and our experience, spans over a great period of time. We have the industry knowledge and know-how.”
Although UVDI manufacturers molecular filtration products and UV products for residential, commercial and industrial applications, this article also highlighted UVDI’s development of new products designed specifically for the healthcare industry. Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection of air and surfaces in hospitals has been increasingly used by the healthcare industry to battle microbial pathogens and infectious agents associated with healthcare-associated infections (HAIs).
