Fusion Optix expands headquarters; increases product development and quality control space

Date Announced: 18 Aug 2009

-- Leading developer of Optical Components and Systems for Energy Efficient Lighting and Flat Panel Displays expands corporate headquarters

Woburn, MA –– In an effort to further support its growing client list, Fusion Optix has expanded into the adjoining space of its new facility in Woburn, MA.

The move gives Fusion Optix 60% more space for engineering, product development, and quality control.

“Earlier this year, we realized that we needed more production space and so moved to Woburn. Now, we are finding the need for not only more production space, but significantly more engineering, product development, and quality control space,” says Michael Demas, Director of Operations at Fusion Optix.

The space will house a larger, more sophisticated integrating sphere for system testing, dedicated space for LED system design, and an expanded quality control area, among other things. The added space also allows Fusion Optix to bring more capabilities in-house, such as LED array assembly and optical film coating.

As solid-state lighting becomes more viable in the general illumination, display, and signage markets, Fusion Optix has been focusing on system designs that incorporate LEDs and highly efficient optical components, in addition to high efficiency lenses for fluorescent lighting. Because of this shift, the need for more dedicated engineering and product development space has become apparent.

Terry Yeo, CEO of Fusion Optix, comments, “It’s an exciting time for solid state lighting and energy efficient lighting in general. We knew we needed more space to accommodate system-level work and jumped when we got the chance.”
