Precision Photonics Growth Fuels Expansion For 2011

Precision Photonics Corp. (PPC) recently announced the expansion of its Boulder, Colorado based manufacturing facility. PPC has recently added approx. 5,000 square feet to its current production facility in order to accommodate new personnel and new manufacturing and metrology equipment brought on during the past several months.

The new addition to the manufacturing space will help further increase fabrication and coating capacity and improve the overall flow of production processes at PPC. The expansion was triggered by the continued and consistent growth PPC has experienced in recent years.

Says Nick Traggis, Vice President of Photonics: "With 2010 on track to be the best in company history, we are pleased to be in a position to invest in additional infrastructure. This expansion will enable us to successfully meet the growing demand for our high energy laser optics and coatings, and better serve our customers."

In order to facilitate the growth and reorganization required for the expansion, Dr. Ove Lyngnes has been named the new Director of Operations. Dr. Lyngnes has been with PPC for over 6 years specializing in the design and deposition of ion beam sputtered coatings for high energy laser applications. Prior to his employment at PPC, Dr. Lyngnes was the thin film coatings manager for CVI Laser Corp.
