What Happened to PEN Technology?

Who We Were:

We’re uniquely positioned for the challenge. PEN is the combination of Nanofilm, Ltd. and Applied Nanotech Holdings, Inc., two nanotechnology pioneers.

Nanofilm was founded in 1985 by Scott Rickert, CEO of PEN. The start-up built on Dr. Rickert’s advanced research and grew to be a company with a leading market position for specialty optical coatings, cleaners, and nano-composite products. Nanofilm now serves a global market with a variety of products for consumer, commercial and industrial use.

Applied Nanotech Holdings, Inc., a global leader in nanotechnology, has become the PEN Design Center. It has more than 25 years in the industry, holds more than 250 patents, and has partnered with organizations like the U.S. Department of Transportation, the Army Research Office, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture to find nanotechnology-based solutions to challenges.

Through our companies – present and future – PEN is committed to developing nanotechnology-based innovations to redefine products, reinvent categories, and – most important – improve people’s lives.

At PEN, we’re harnessing nanotechnology, the science of the infinitely small, in products that have a big impact on health, safety, and sustainability. They perform better, faster, smarter, stronger, cleaner – to make every day better for people and the planet.

From healthcare to homecare, homeland defense to food security, transportation to recreation, products from our family of companies are transforming the way we live, work and play.
