Americ-Dering Acquires U.S. Optical Disc13 Jun, 2007 By: Kyra Kudick
Americ-Dering, the replication joint venture between The Dering Corp. and Americ Disc Inc., has acquired CD replicator U.S. Optical Disc Inc.
The terms of the deal were not released.
“As evidenced by the recent Denon acquisition and the Dering joint venture, Americ Disc is committed to expanding its position as a leading independent CD and DVD replication company,” said Americ Disc president, Claude Raymond.
Founded in 1989, the Sanford, Maine-based U.S. Optical Disc is a CD replicator that serves software, audio and publishing customers. Americ-Dering has optical media manufacturing facilities in both the United States and Canada, and is currently capable of putting out 200 million units a year.
“While I am disappointed that the challenges of the market made it impossible to remain independent and continue to operate from our facility in Sanford, I am confident that Americ-Dering represents the best solution for our customers,” said Tim Roy, president of U.S. Optical Disc Inc.
