Sonics & Materials (UK) Ltd.
Sonics & Materials (UK) Ltd. was formed in August 2004 after taking over the plastic welding business from Kerry Ultrasonic. Kerry Ultrasonics was formed in 1954 and had been a prominent manufacturer of plastic welding and ultrasonic cleaning equipment. Guyson International Ltd purchased Kerry Ultrasonics in early 2004 primarily to acquire a capability in ultrasonic cleaning and the plastic welding business was therefore sold to Sonics and Materials UK Ltd.
For approximately 15 years Kerry Ultrasonics had distributed the products of Sonics & Materials Inc. and manufactured ultrasonic tooling. This business was completely transferred to Sonics and Materials (UK) Ltd. who specialise in the distribution of a wide range of plastic welding equipment including ultrasonic, hotplate, vibration and spin welding. With access to the technical knowledge and experience of Sonics & Materials Inc. and approximately 30 years' experience working with ultrasonic plastic welding equipment Sonics and Materials (UK) Ltd. are well placed to assist with your plastic welding applications.
