New York Photonics member Precision Optical Transceivers (POT) is expanding into Eastman Business Park in Rochester. The company currently employs 20 people and expects to add another 30 positions at the new facility over the next two years.
POT works with a wide variety of industries, including health care, education, enterprise, government entities, and service providers. The company has invested heavily into Silicon and Integrated Photonics over the past two years and expects significant growth in both its technical and manufacturing capabilities by 2020.
“Our company has been growing rapidly so expansion was inevitable. We wanted to relocate to a place where we not only can continue to grow, but to a place that will actually help us grow.” said Todd Davis, CEO of Precision Optical Transceivers. “
“The recent announcement that the AIM Photonics Test, Assembly and Packaging Center would be located in Eastman Business Park means we will be very close to the epicenter of Photonics research and manufacturing growth. And the manufacturing support infrastructure of the Park means we will have access to all the support we need to grow rapidly.”
The company chose EBP in which to expand its operation largely due to the proximity of the new AIM Photonics facility located on the EBP campus at ONSemiconductor.The optical telecommunications systems developer had long outgrown its Brockport location. They plan to add positions in engineering, manufacturing and support staff in the coming months.
