Sandia Electro-Optics Corporation (SE-OC) Acquires Unique Services

Sandia Electro-Optics Corporation (SE-OC) acquired Unique Services Inc. ( ) on 1-April-2013. Effective immediately, Unique Services will conduct business as a Unit of SE-OC.

SE-OC was incorporated in NM earlier of this year with the goal of developing, manufacturing, and selling optically-enabled instrumentation for the life science and environmental sensing market segments. Commenting on the acquisition, SE-OC Founder & CEO Michael J. Cumbo said “Since the bill of materials for most optical instruments is at least 50% mechanical, it was strategically important for us to secure a source of highly customized precision opto-mechanical components. Unique Services clearly meets this foundational requirement and brings with it a valuable book of business and related contacts that is already expanding SE-OC’s scope of new business opportunities.”

Unique Services and SE-OC will continue to call Albuquerque home, and both will be based at the existing 2926 Girard Blvd. site for the next three to six months. SE-OC is actively searching for a larger facility in the same general area.

In his customer letter, Dr. Cumbo remarked “SE-OC has great respect for the solid reputation of Unique Services among its diverse customer base. Bill Brittelle will continue as the Shop Foreman of Unique Services, sustaining the excellent work that you have come to expect from us. We intend to build on that reputation by adding talented people and equipment to advance our capabilities in precision metal, plastic and glass machining, surface metrology, and flexible assembly work. To help ensure good business continuity, Brian Langwell will also be consulting with us for the next 12 months. A few days ago, we released the first phase of the revamped Unique Services web site ( ). In the coming weeks, we will expand the site, with the goal of making it easier for our customers to do business with us.”
