IDEX Corporation Forms Optics & Photonics Platform

Stocks in this article: IEX

Driven by rising demand for custom–engineered solutions for photonics-enabled instrumentation, the IDEX Optics & Photonics (IOP) platform combines mission–critical technology, manufacturing, and distribution capabilities with proven IDEX commercial and operational excellence tools to provide its customers with shorter time-to-market and unparalleled collaboration, quality, and service.

The IOP platform currently consists of three business units: ATFilms, CVI Melles Griot, and Semrock. IOP has a substantial international presence with manufacturing facilities in Asia, Europe, and North America, including its headquarters in Albuquerque, NM, which is the original home of CVI Laser.

According to IOP President Michael J. Cumbo, “With three highly regarded business units, each enabled by high–performance thin–film interference coating technologies, IOP is continuously improving the components and engineering solutions that our customers rely upon to achieve higher levels of product differentiation in today’s competitive global marketplace. We are committed to building the platform through sustained R&D investment, mixed–model lean manufacturing, and development of the most talented team in the photonics industry.”

“By maintaining our existing brands and cross-pollinating technical expertise within IOP, we’ll continue to interact with customers at the apex of product performance, engineering excellence, and project management efficiency,” says Turan Erdogan, IOP Chief Technology Officer. “The result is a winning combination for the product/solution value chain, reduction of our customers’ supply base complexity, and setting new best-practice standards for the entire industry.”

By combining a strong portfolio of highly engineered photonic components and subsystems for life science, medical, industrial, defense, and semiconductor applications, a widely trusted and award-winning catalog, and the broad fluidics expertise possessed by IDEX Corporation, the IDEX Optics & Photonics platform is uniquely positioned to synergistically serve OEM customers, researchers and end users across the globe.
