Growing Demand for Ultra-high Precision Optics

Optical Surfaces Ltd. (Kenley, UK) reports how strong demand for high precision optics and optical systems from the astronomy, fundamental physics and defence communities has enabled it to exceed its annual sales target after just 7-months of 2022. This follows a 20% growth in sales achieved in the previous 2 years.

Founded in 1962, Optical Surfaces Ltd is internationally recognised as a leading manufacturer of ultra-high precision optical components and opto-mechanical instruments. Optical Surfaces Ltd is especially renowned for its expertise in large diameter optics, off-axis parabolic mirrors, reference flats, beam expanders, optical collimators, and challenging prototypes.

Dr Aris Kouris, Sales Director commented “Our ISO 9001 approved manufacturing workshops and test facilities being deep underground in a series of tunnels excavated from solid chalk, where temperature remains constant and vibration is practically non-existent, gives us a natural advantage. Couple this with regular investment in optical research and development, state-of-the-art testing equipment and talented staff enables Optical Surfaces Ltd. to produce challenging one-off and small batches of optics and optical systems that deliver performance at the edge of what is possible”.
