SANTA CLARA, CA - Coherent Inc. has acquired the North American operations of StockerYale Inc. in an asset purchase for $15 million in cash. The company acquired all the assets and certain operating liabilities of the laser module product line in Montreal and the specialty fiber product line in Salem, NH.

We also add core fiber technology, which will improve our time to market and enhance both the performance and reliability of our fiber-based product platforms.”
