A Victor company that manufactures precision optics and technical ceramic components is celebrating its opening this week.
Although Vertex Optics opened its 8,500-square-foot facility at 90 Victor Heights Parkway in January, its grand opening was celebrated Wednesday with an “Optoberfest” event for members of the optics community, a big industry in the Rochester-Finger Lakes region.
The Optoberfest coincided with Optifab (Oct. 14-17), the largest optical manufacturing conference in North America, held at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center. Vertex is exhibiting at Optifab.
Vertex Optics specializes in the manufacture of challenging optical components that can be made from brittle materials such as glass, crystals and ceramics.
Company officials said they “embrace prototype projects and, when needed, collaborate with optical designers at the very beginning of the design process.”
