Precision Optical to Host Open House During SPIE DCS in April 2017

Posted by: po_admin | Posted on

SPIE DCS is expected to be the largest photonics expo to visit Orange County, CA in well over a decade, and Precision Optical is excited at the opportunity to host an open house during the week of DCS.

Precision Optical has operated continuously in Orange County since its founding in 1959. We are well known throughout the photonics industry as a top-notch manufacturer of the most challenging of optical components, coatings, and assemblies.  In 2011, we moved into our state-of-the-art, 42,000 sq. ft. facility in Costa Mesa.  Over the past five years, we have hosted numerous outreach and industry events, including an event in October 2014 to promote the National Photonics Initiative.  Put on by The Optical Society of Southern California (OSSC), with support from The Optical Society (OSA), Precision Optical was proud to host this event, which was attended by over 100 members of the optics and photonics community, local academics, and political representatives.

Through our educational outreach program, the Ensign-Lambert Optics Education Program, Precision Optical regularly hosts academic field trips, provides a venue for local college photonics courses, and works with local educational organizations to provide training to local high school physics and chemistry teachers to incorporate optics into their curriculum.  We have a demonstrated track record of opening our doors to the local educational community and to fellow members of our industry.

SPIE DCS presents an ideal opportunity for Precision Optical to host an open house event. We look forward to inviting representatives from some of our current and tenured customers, including, but not limited to Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Boeing, BAE, DRS, and L3; representatives from the U.S. government and military; as well as those from NASA, JPL LLNL and other national laboratories.

Upon arriving at Precision Optical, guests will be treated to a guided tour of our manufacturing facility. Following the tours, guests will be invited to enjoy live music, hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine in our reception area. (Beer and wine provided courtesy of Photonics Media).

Attendees will be transported by Precision Optical from the Anaheim Convention Center to our facility and back again.

When: Tuesday, April 11th 2017,  6:00 – 9:00 PM

Where:  Precision Optical, 320 Kalmus Drive, Costa Mesa, CA 92626
