May 18, 2007 -- OpTek Systems (search for OpTek), the UK-based manufacturer of laser processing tools for the fiber-optic and micromachining markets, has announced the formation of OpTek Systems Inc. (OSI) in Greenville, SC. The company says the expansion is in direct response to the rising demand for laser processing of optical fibers, including lensing, cleaving, and buffer stripping.
OSI will provide contract manufacturing services and serve as the headquarters for North American equipment sales, with emphasis on the government/aerospace/defense, medical, and telecom segments. The company asserts its operation is ideally suited for the production of optical interfaces for active devices, ribbons and arrays, large-core hard clad silica fiber, and other assemblies challenged by mechanical methods of processing.
"Utilizing the proprietary and patented laser technology platforms of OpTek Systems, we believe OSI is firmly rooted to deliver world-class manufacturing services into our selected markets," says Duane Dinkel, OpTek Systems Inc. president.
The South Carolina manufacturing center complements OpTek's earlier establishment of a sales and support office in Groton, MA. OSI officially began operations January 1, 2007.
