SAN DIEGO, CA, USA, August 16, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — San Diego, CA — Tide Rock, a San Diego-based unlevered buyout firm, announces the acquisition of Specialized Coating Services (“SpecCoat”), a conformal coating company that provides essential protective coatings for electronic components and printed circuit boards (PCBs). SpecCoat will join Pro-Active Engineering and Adura as Tide Rock’s third company in its growing EMS/PCB portfolio.

The company is headquartered in Fremont, CA, and has a new facility in the Boston, MA area. The coating processes offered are integral for harsh-environment applications in the space, aerospace, military & defense, medical, commercial and renewable energy markets.

“SpecCoat further expands the electronics manufacturing services capabilities within Tide Rock’s portfolio,” said Brooks Kincaid, President of Tide Rock. “The company’s conformal coating processes protect sensitive electronics against harsh environments—from outer space to deep sea. Their ability to provide customized coating solutions tailored to their customers’ specific needs, and their commitment to help customers select the right coatings and address technical challenges sets them apart. Their proximity to Silicon Valley and Boston is also an advantage, allowing them to service growing companies developing space, aerospace, defense, medical and other high technology products.”
