Dean Technology has fully acquired its joint-venture partner Anshan Sun Locus (ASL) HV Components of Anshan, Liaoning China. ASL, founded in 1990, has focused on producing high-voltage diodes. With the addition of ASL, Dean Technology now employs approximately 300 people worldwide. This acquisition brings the Divisions of Dean Technology to four: HV Component Associates (HVCA), CKE, ASL and High Voltage Power Solutions (HVPSI).
The acquisition allows for the development of additional high-voltage products while improving the existing technology utilized in the design and manufacturing of high-voltage diodes and rectifiers. These high-voltage products are suited for high density, high-voltage rectification.
