Meeting your needs is our number one priority. Low price, high quantities, fast leadtimes - that's why we manufacture many of our optics. Join Robert Edmund, CEO of Edmund Optics, as he explains why our customers are the driving force behind optical manufacturing. For more information on our manufacturing capabilities, visit our Manufacturing page.
We manufacture our optics to meet the needs and the requirements and the request of our customer base. Listen to what the customers are telling us about what you do. That’s the most important reason that you do it. The production of aspheres is a relatively new skill set to optical production and it’s exciting to be doing that. Glass molding, these are ways, again, that you meet the needs of the customer. The reason that we do many of these things is to better service the customer. So, you offer your basic optics and your customers will come along and request a different coding on that particular optic to meet a very specific need that they have. What becomes very important to them is how quickly you can do that. So, if it is an in-house capability, generally speaking you can manage to cut the amount of lead time that is involved in production. The customers need to cut that lead time down and to get delivery to meet their schedule, and we have received A+ grades – customers from all around the world who praise us for the optics that we manufacture. What better compliment can you get than from your customers?
