MEMS Optical Inc. (Huntsville, AL) and JENOPTIK Polymer Systems Inc. (Rochester, NY) have merged with JENOPTIK Optical Systems Inc. (Jupiter, FL) effective January 4, 2010. The merged company will create a single corporation for the U.S.-based manufacturing operations of JENOPTIK Optical Systems Division.
With the merger, JENOPTIK Optical Systems Inc. has a unique breadth of manufacturing and design capabilities, including optical lens assemblies, optical components, refractive and diffractive microoptics, manufactured with wafer-level techniques, and molded polymer optics. Customers include those requiring design and manufacture of prototype optical assemblies through high-volume component manufacturing for applications ranging from UV through LWIR.
With today's announcement, the company now includes 125 employees and 100,000 square feet of U.S. optical manufacturing across 3 facilities. The unified entity will allow each location to realize the efficiencies of a larger organization, simplify marketing efforts, increase brand recognition, and continue the technical excellence developed in each of the locations.
Primary markets are life science research, defense, semiconductor manufacturing, digital projection, optical metrology, and astronomical research but in fact are any that require custom precision optics.
