Edmund Optics and Schott expand their collaboration
Edmund Optics and Schott have formed a strategic partnership to enable customers to have access to the polished optical glass filters from Schott, with the customer service and shipping of Edmund Optics.
Both companies have been working together for more than 30 years, and this new partnership will ensure a globally optimal solution to respond to customer needs, especially for small quantities of customized polished optical glass filters. Inquiries for Schott’s standard portfolio of optical filters can now be more easily processed through Edmund Optics. This expansion will also significantly increase the service profile of Edmund Optics’ German manufacturing facility, known as ITOS, that has had a long-term partnership with Schott for over 20 years.
"This partnership will drive fast and easy access to components using Schott materials in Europe and in a next step in China for both standard products and custom designs for prototype and small volume quantities, as well as high volumes," says Marcus Knöbel, Executive Vice President of SCHott’s Business Unit Advanced Optics. Samuel Sadoulet, President and COO of Edmund Optics adds, "We will now be able to offer additional flexible solutions to our customers by applying our leading customer service to an even larger product range."
