New facility primes LightWorks Optics for growth

Tustin, CA--Fueled in part by increased demand from the biomedical industry among others, LightWorks Optics will open a 14,000-square-foot expansion adjacent to its corporate headquarters. The new facility will help speed product development efforts, optimize testing efficacy, and expand product capacity. This is the company’s second expansion into new facilities over the past two years.

The company—a provider of custom precision optical components and advanced integrated optics solutions—reports that its consistent growth has been enhanced by state-of-the-art assets, which include two large single-point diamond-turning machines, aspheric and conventional polishing equipment, a CNC machining center, two certified clean rooms and multiple, high-end integration and testing stations. With the opening of the high-volume production facility in Vista, California in 2009, LightWorks Optics now occupies more than 40,000-square-feet of total operating space. The company is also concurrently modernizing its existing headquarters to complement the new facility and enhance overall productivity.
