In 2019, Roeslein & Associates acquired MCS Technology and rebranded the operation as its Roeslein Poland facility. At the same time, the company purchased 12 acres of land to develop.

The renovations to the current facilities will allow Roeslein’s Poland team to better organize its departments and workflow, as well as allow an increase in production capacity and the manufacturing of larger modules. Each department will also have dedicated areas to improve efficiency and streamline operations for a quicker output of units, leading to reduced project times.
Roeslein & Associates is bringing new technology to market by transforming its proprietary Ultra Violet Bottom Coating System (UVBC) with a reliable, sustainable, and proven UV LED curing and control system update.

The UV lamp and power supplies are smaller, lighter, less expensive, and provide better availability for purchase. With regard to coatings, a new coating has been implemented for LED curing and vetted by a third party for validation.
