Edmund Optics® (EO), the premier provider of optical and imaging components, announced today that it has opened a new Assembly and Advanced Design Facility in Tucson, Arizona, the second Edmund Optics location in the state. This almost 2.000 m² state-of-the-art facility will support advanced design efforts and high-volume manufacturing services, including cleanroom assembly and incoming inspection with numerous testing capabilities such as MTF, straylight, thermal cycle, shock, and vibration.

Customers will now have access to more sophisticated and state-of-the-art offerings at a location on the West Coast, in addition to other Edmund Optics facilities, domestically and internationally. “We are pleased to be able to now provide additional design and assembly services for our customer’s most demanding and complex applications within the region, but also globally”, says Greg Hollows, Vice President of Edmund Optics’ Imaging Business Unit.

In addition, new technology jobs will be created in Tucson. “This new facility will allow Edmund Optics to build a larger collaborative partnership with the institutions of the Tucson Optics Valley like the Arizona Optics Initiative (AOI) and Arizona Technology Council (AZTC)“ and show the company’s commitment to the region”, said Robert Edmund, CEO and Chairman of the Board.“ This facility has already hired six new engineers and plans to add additional technical talent over the course of this year.
