Syntec Optics (Nasdaq: OPTX) Awarded Contract for Optics in Biomedical Equipment


Syntec Optics meets ultra high precision requirement

ROCHESTER, NEW YORK, Nov. 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Syntec Optics, a scientific and technical instruments, and aerospace and defense mission-critical supplier that previously announced winning contracts for extremely high-precision satellite optics for the space economy and night vision goggle optics for the defense end-markets, announced today that it has been awarded its first contract for a minimum of 20 ultra-precision biomedical optics to be delivered in 2023 and additional 2400 in early 2024.

“Syntec Optics is delighted to serve the mission-critical biomedical end-market in addition to consumer and defense. Syntec Optics team is excited because we believe these well-established end-markets together to be acyclical based upon the two decades of demonstrated consistency in revenue from such end-markets even in times of economic headwind,” said Joe Mohr, CEO of Syntec Optics.


“This order that is expected to lead to follow-on orders shows the excellent work performed by our engineers and operations team, collaborating together for the past three years to demonstrate the scalable capability of ultra-precision biomedical optics for our industry-leading optics integrator and blue-chip customer. We are excited to demonstrate Made in America domestic advanced manufacturing to our customer so they do not have to rely on foreign suppliers,” said Jeremy Rood, Program Manager.

Such ultra-precision optics excel in applications requiring ultra-accurate optical scans at extremely high speeds. They can provide a very precise raster pattern making them ideal for certain biomedical applications.

“Syntec Optics is continuing to apply high-performance optical solutions to diverse end-markets for continued growth,” said Jim Olson, industry expert and Syntec Optics VP of Advanced Optics Systems.
