Koch Engineered Solutions announces acquisition of DarkVision
May 19, 2020 – Koch Engineered Solutions (KES), a unit of Koch Industries Inc., announced it has acquired a majority stake in DarkVision Technologies Inc. (DarkVision) in the first step towards developing a broad asset integrity platform within KES. In conjunction with the acquisition, KES has also made a significant growth equity investment in DarkVision to fund future growth, R&D and expansion.

These advanced capabilities have broad applicability beyond DarkVision’s current commercial offering serving the downhole oil & gas space. Packaged into a single solution, DarkVision will serve customers in a variety of end-markets such as public infrastructure, energy and pipelines, power (renewables and conventional), aerospace, manufacturing, and automotive – amongst others.
