On October 16th Semrock held a ribbon cutting ceremony to reveal the expansion of their high volume factory. The morning began with Denis Lee, IDEX Optics & Photonics (IOP) Director of Global Supply Chain and Logistics, who was the event’s MC. Lee thanked those who were greatly involved in the process.
The morning’s presenters began with Dr. Michael J. Cumbo, President of IOP, who discussed how the expansion creates growth for Semrock and IOP. Following Dr. Cumbo was Rob Beeson, Semrock General Manager, who discussed what this expansion will mean for growth in Rochester Optics. Beeson also cited the driver behind the expansion, Dr. Craig Hodgson, Semrock Director of Research and Development who discussed his journey with the idea of the expansion and thanked those who helped make it a success. The presentation was wrapped up with a Q&A session followed by a media tour of the new facility.
“The entire Semrock team is thrilled to be opening this new facility,” said Beeson. “It’s taken years of planning and months of building, but we’re now ready to provide this new high-performance, high-volume filter manufacturing capability to our customers. As the revolution in personal healthcare proceeds, Semrock will continue to be at the forefront of enabling optical technology.”
The event was celebrated by Semrock employees and media representatives, and refreshments were served. Semrock would like to thank all who attended and everyone who had a role in making this expansion happen.
