Nanofilm was founded in 1985 by Dr. Scott Rickert and Don McClusky. The foundation of the company is Dr. Rickert's pioneering work in self-assembling thin films at Case Western Reserve University where he was a professor and researcher. The company quickly began successful commercialization of nanocoatings and surface preservation treatments.
In two decades the company's technology portfolio has expanded rapidly to include dozens of products in three core technologies: self-assembling nanofilms, nanocomposites, surface preservation and care.
The company's products are designed for many markets, including transportation, electronics and displays, aviation/aerospace, architecture, optical and consumer
products. Products are distributed on every continent around the globe.
Nanofilm is a privately held company with headquarters in Valley View, Ohio, near Cleveland. Today, the company includes approximately 65 employees working in 50,000 square feet of research, lab, production and manufacturing space.
