UVDI is one of the oldest and most respected ultraviolet disinfection companies in the world.
It all began with the hard work and ingenuity of a single man. Three generations ago Lou Veloz was an engineer for Westinghouse when their R&D engineers developed and patented the first commercial ultraviolet lamps. Lou was excited by this new technology and in 1949 he purchased a Westinghouse UV lamp dealership. Early applications were difficult to develop, but Lou had a vision of how ultraviolet light might be widespread and effective. He formed Aquafine Corporation to focus on water disinfection.
