BELLINGHAM, WA - Magnaflux, a division of Illinois Tool Works, has acquired Sonotech, Inc. (Bellingham, WA). Sonotech is a developer and manufacturer of ultrasonic couplants for the field of nondestructive testing and medical diagnostic imaging. The company’s technology development and product franchise spans over three decades.

Sonotech will continue to operate as an independent company, which is consistent with the ITW decentralized organization structure. Sonotech operations in Bellingham, WA, will remain essentially unchanged, and existing distribution and customer agreements will not be affected. Peg Larson, president of Sonotech Inc., says, “I am very pleased with this acquisition and believe ITW and Magnaflux offer Sonotech exponential growth potential and expanded marketing opportunities.”

Illinois Tool Works (ITW) owns over 825 decentralized business units in 52 countries and employs approximately 60,000 men and women who are focused on creating value-added products and innovative customer solutions.
