Spectra Group reaches 20th anniversary

From its beginnings as research conducted in a chemistry lab at Bowling Green State University, a local high-tech business has grown to serve foreign and domestic markets.

Spectra Group Limited, Inc., observed its 20th anniversary with an open house recently at its Lemoyne Road facility in Millbury, where the company has been located since April, 2005 – having moved there from Arrowhead Park.

“We needed a place where we could do more manufacturing,” Alex Mejiritski, president, said, adding the company has plans to expand into adjoining suites and possibly hire one or two more employees.

Currently, the company employs six with almost everyone except for the office manager a holder of a Ph.D. in a specialized field of chemistry.

To call Spectra a chemical company, however, would be akin to calling a Ferrari a vehicle.

Spectra’s website describes itself as a company “…specializing in creative solutions in the photo-sciences” and having a “…unique collection of technology experts providing coverage of various fields, including photo-chemistry, polymer chemistry, synthetic organic chemistry, photo-initiator synthesis, resin formulation for radiation cure and applied development, and  spectroscopy.”

 Development to continue stabilizing and strengthening Toledo neighborhoods that have been hit by the foreclosure crisis.

The grant is part of the third round of funding for the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) and was allocated as part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

Toledo’s award was the third highest allocation among Ohio cities and counties, higher than Cincinnati’s allocation ($3.1 million) despite its rank as the third most populous Ohio city. Approximately 250 U.S. cities and counties received NSP III allocations. Toledo’s allocation landed the city in the top 50 nationwide based on amount received.

The money will be used locally to acquire and rehabilitate foreclosed homes in order to make them salable once again. The funding can also be used to provide qualifying homebuyers with down payment assistance.
